This place gets pretty busy early in the morning but the servers do a good job of handling breakfast chaos. The food is exactly what you want and there is variety. If you get the breakfast skillet be prepared to be full its a full experience. They sell their Bee coffee mugs, you want one

The Queen Bee is a "Main Street " type hometown diner on College Avenue in Appleton, Wisconsin. Great breakfast egg dishes and good coffee. Nothing fancy but good food with locals.

This is a great place for breakfast! The food is normal/American food. It has a cute atmosphere although the decor is dated. They were very accomadating to my somewhat obnoxious (but very cute!) toddler. It's nice to have a place for breakfast right downtown as well. I know there are more hip places near the mall, but there is so... More

We stopped here for breakfast and were so pleased! We had a Hodge podge of foods, and all were delicious. I loved my classic ham and cheese with to-die-for English muffin toast. My husband loved the gyro sandwich he got. My daughter gobbled up the cheese curds, chocolate chip pancake, and bacon she ordered. Our waitress was friendly, fast and... More

I read the previous reviews and decided to try it however very disappointed... Service was good, but the food was not very good. I had a turkey wrap and it was more cheese than turkey but the bacon in it was either old or fried in old oil and gave it a not very pleasant taste..my friend had a steak... More

Best cup of coffee I had while in Appleton! Even the mug was so perfect I had to purchase one! The veggie skillet was delicious and exactly what I needed for a late morning meal! The atmosphere was relaxed, the staff were friendly, attentive, and let us enjoy our meal.

Stopped in while exploring the Appleton Farmer's Market on Saturday. Standard diner menu. I ordered one of the specials, Crab Cake Benedict with a side of potatoes. Also we ordered pancakes and scrambled eggs. Wonderful meal, the pancakes are big, one is plenty for a kid. The CCB had a great sauce and the eggs were done perfect. The only... More

This place fits right into Appleton's quaint downtown. I've eaten breakfast here several times. It's always been good. The service is quick and friendly. If you like the small town, non-chain diner vibe, the Queen Bee is perfect!
