From The Cincinnati Enquirer’s Polly Campbell
“The success of the Sleepy Bee Cafe is proof of how much the dining public wanted good, non-greasy-spoon breakfast. It was immediately popular in their first location in Oakley, and a second spot has since opened in Blue Ash.
There are a lot of locally raised egg dishes on the menu so it is, in some ways, a standard breakfast fare. But they’re made with extra choices and flair. You can get sweet potatoes instead of home fries, for instance, and their “nectar” sauce is a fresh, wonderful alternative to ketchup. I recently tried a tofu scramble instead of egg. It eats about the same, though with the edge of the turmeric that makes the tofu yellow. To stick to the theme, I got veggie sausage, which was a tasty reasonable facsimile. The Blue Ash location, which is larger than the original, has a very nice little patio surrounded by the trees and paths of Blue Ash Square, allowing for one of the best things in life: breakfast on the veranda, so to speak.”
