Seattle Times reporter Tyrone Beason had great things to say about the Queen Bee (Queen Anne location). In another Seattle Times article published the week of October 30th, 2015, Beason writes, “Building a whole business around crumpets… might sounds like a gamble, but the people behind Queen Bee Café atop Queen Anne have managed to both honor and run wild with this most humble of British pastries.” Beason adds, “Queen Bee takes crumpets to a whole new level.”
