In the fast-food era, finding a healthy place to eat at proves to be a quest and lottery combined. Moreover, not every restaurant is willing to share the product's origins or think through the calorie value of the dishes. Luckily, newly-opened Bee Garden is a complete opposite: the cafe supports balanced ration, local manufacturers and craft products. Let's find out what else it got up its sleeve!
Even the name of the cafe is chosen carefully – its history started as a small family-held bee garden in Mykolaiv, and soon transformed into one of the cozy and healthy cafes in the busy city that is Kyiv. The concept of the place is to offer the most delicious food be it a breakfast for a hurrying office manager at 8 A.M. or a romantic dinner for two in the evening. Bee Garden is heavily focused on popularization of the farm products, that's why each position in the menu is prepared from the organic Ukrainian ingredients.
The menu principles are just as clear: healthy, delicious and fast. Besides, Bee Garden Cafe keeps up with the trends — dishes from the breakfast section here are available the whole day long. To name but a few: oatmeal with poached eggs, Parmesan and truffle oil, eggs Benedict on a spinach toast with Hollandese sauce and salted salmon.
