The Queen Bee is dedicated to all strong, resourceful mothers and nurturing women. The owner’s admiration for his mother, Colleen Clark, was the inspiration to build a café in her memory. Colleen was a single mother of British roots who provided for her family as a hard-working line cook.
Her skills as a mother mirrored her skills in the kitchen. Colleen kneaded into her son the self confidence that he could do anything, sifted that together with a generosity of spirit, tempered that with a sense of humor, and added a dash of flamboyance to spice up life.
She is the original Queen Bee.
Whether your taste buds crave savory or sweet, Queen Bee offers traditional English crumpet (also called a griddle cake) in a new way with locally sourced products and produce in tasty combinations along with a cup of Stumptown coffee or espresso.
