Burger Review: Bea Bea’s Cafe


When your a late night person, you know the usual spots in home but sometimes you have to investigate a little when it comes to morning and afternoon places.

bea bea 1Bea Bea’s Cafe is one of those breakfast/lunch places. It not a fancy place or is it a well advertised place.  You really don’t know where it is unless you happen to find it when you are shopping at Von’s in the Lakeside shopping center.

The few times I have been up and in the area early you can see the place is always packed with many times people waiting. It has a large breakfast and lunch menu with a good variety and many healthy choices.

I ordered the ‘All Time Favorite’ Burger which consisted of a patty with bacon, mushrooms, avocado with jack cheese.  Of course I asked for cheddar instead. Creature of habit as you have figured out by now.

The bun was well sized but had no dressing.  All that was available on the table was ketchup.  Once I got ready to pick it up I suddenly was worried.  The patty was directly on the bottom bun and the bottom bun, although toasted, was still starting to look a little flimsy. I have already nailed two locations for bun failures and was hoping not to have a third.

The burgers taste was great, not only was the patty fresh but has been seasoned to give it a great taste.  The amount of cheddar cheese was a little weak but passable. The avocado, bacon and mushrooms all provided a great taste with each bite.

bea bea 2Thank goodness as I approached the end, the burger’s bun was still intact. It was getting soggy with the patty’s juice but still kept its integrity until the final bite.  A small leave of lettuce under the patty would solve this problem so easy. Overall, this was a really great burger with everything fresh and locally sourced. This is not a cheap burger at $12.95 (with french fries included) but the price was worth the quality of what you got.

Side Notes: Tried the cole claw and while it was freshly made, it has no zip to it and was a little bland.  The french fries came well done and were okay with a little seasoning on them.  This is a place worth trying not only for the burgers but also the entire lunch and breakfast menu. Everything I could see leaving the kitchen was plentiful and looked real good.

  1. Very good place for breakfast with quality food . If your living on a budget though it’s a very
    Expensive proposition to go there . Higher prices then Bobs or ihop or talley rand.
