I am from Sacramento and Found This is the best Mom and Pop Restaraunt in Springfield. The people are friendly and make you feel like family. The food is of high quality with specials that are very affordable. The coffee is excellent and the Taters are perfect!! and the Pie is yummy. I did tell them that they need a mirror behind the mens toilet so old or fat guys can see where they are peeing but I was told the Bathrooms are getting updated. I do hope for the fat and old people that they do include the mirror behind the toilet when it gets remodeled.
All I have to say about The Busy Bee Cafe. Is I wish we had this in Portland. I would be eating there everyday. I think EVERYONE who lives in the Eugene/Springfield area needs to go and try it. You WILL fall in love.
Also if you loooovvveee ranch like I do, get something so you can dip it in.
Thats all....COME TO PORTLAND!
food is too greasy it seems as if the oil is never changed. Our meal was brought to us in disaray, could take extra time to present a good plate. piercings and tattoo's on offinsive waitress, like she didn't have time for us. Some kitchen staff looked unshaven and rough, not a good look for someone prepairing your food. Food is decent but oily. Had food that was both under and over cooked. If I have no other option for food I may come back, however your wait staff needs to treat all of the occupants the same no matter what they look like.
Just happened upon this neat little cafe while out exploring tonight. It's very homey and cheerful, Gene and Betty are very nice folks and it feels more like eating with friends or family than a restaurant. The food was very good and obviously made from scratch. We also had some very good pie and cake for dessert. We will definitely be going back. Oh, and it's fairly inexpensive too!
Busy Bee is a great old cafe with a counter like woolworth's had. The food is inexpensive and always tastes good. It is not a modern place, it is a nice place to eat and visit with friends and drink lots of coffee. They serve Breakfast ALL DAY... I love that since breakfast is my favorite.
Give it a try. Enjoy.
Not only is the food at the Busy Bee Cafe wonderful, but so is the staff! We love Gene and Betty's Busy Bee because they treat us like family! Our favorite dishes are the chicken fried steak and taco salad.
