Popular in little Allston, Mass., Bee’s Knees Supply Co. has local students pumped for going out to eat. This local hole-in-the-wall is known for their classic café eats, but they have far more than that. A large portion of the building within the café is home to some fun specialty foods to take home.
Located just off the B Line on the border of Allston and Brighton, Bee’s Knees is easy to access. This little shop helps to bring a more local and organic option to college students looking to do their full on grocery haul, or just buy a snack for later that day.
This place immediately has a fun and eclectic vibe to it when you walk in. The “Insta-famous” Allston marquis on the wall to the right, and the quaint little succulent section to the left gives the place personality, and makes you want to put all of it on your snap story.
With a wide variety of products being sold, ranging from fresh fruits and vegetables to organic cold-pressed juices, this small market attached to the café has more than you would think. With an integrative design, the market is surrounding you as you sit in the café to eat. The tempting chips and popcorn are sitting right next to you staring you down, or the fresh juices just across the counter for you to quench your thirst.
More than just the snack food, there is also a sizable produce section. With luscious lettuce and appetizing avocados, walking over to the fresh fruits and vegetables will have you craving a fresh salad (conveniently located right there).
The store holds pride in their meat and cheese selection. With an extensive delicatessen area, the store offers a variety of meats and cheeses, both packaged and fresh, that are from around the world. To go along with the meat and cheese, there is also a selection of craft beer and wine to add to the already classy vibe of the place.
Just a short T ride away, there’s no reason to not have delicious and healthy food. Whether you’re taking advantage of the atmosphere and eating there, or stopping in quickly and bringing food back home, no doubt you’ll think this place is the bee’s knees.
