Busy Bee Cafe'

I enjoyed pickup from @thebusybeeatl 🐝 - "The South on a Plate". Did you know that the Busy Bee Cafe’ is the ONLY business from segregation that started and still stands on Hunter Street (now Martin Luther King Drive)? The Busy Bee Cafe' started in 1947 during a time when Jim Crow Laws adamantly enforced segregation. With limited socio-economic opportunities for African Americans during this time, black entrepreneurs invested in the area and created thriving businesses that grew and created promise for the community.

Over 70 years later, this restaurant has transformed into a local favorite and an Atlanta staple for tourists across the country! Busy Bee's commitment to tradition and desire to invest in the community is the reason why they are still thriving long after the days of the Jim Crow Era. Thank you Melvin for such a wonderful experience, rich history, and delicious meals. I tried:

Fried Shrimp & Catfish Fillets
Fried chicken

Broccoli Cheese Casserole
Collard Greens
Mac and cheese
Cornbread muffin
Yeast roll

Peach Cobbler

Strawberry Lemonade
Arnold Palmer
