The Bee Hive Tea Room is located in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City in the historic Clift Building, just West of the corner on 3rd South and Main Street. Decorated with an eclectic mix of second-hand furniture, the Beehive gives an atmosphere of having “stepped back in time” to an era when tearooms in cities like New York and San Francisco were bohemian hangouts frequented by artists and writers. Let the retro ambiance take you out of time and place, and enjoy the company of good friends or a good book…..
At the Beehive we have over 35 loose-leaf teas served English style in teapots, delicious David Rio Chai, French Press Coffees from Rimini, hot chocolate, Italian sodas, and tea smoothies. Drop-in for some of our homemade English scones, or order from our light-lunch menu of daily soup, sandwiches, salads, and specials.
Lunch is served between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm every day. Beverages, sweets, and limited menu selections are served until 1/2 hour before closing. (Our last seatings are 1/2 hour before closing.)
The traditional “Afternoon Tea” service is also available Wednesday through Saturday from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, 2:00 to 3:00 on Sunday (reservations required). We prepare Afternoon Tea according to our reservations, therefore, we require that you call us at least one day in advance. The Afternoon Tea is served in the traditional style, with Tea sandwiches, scones & jam, sweets, and a choice of Tea, hot chocolate, French Press coffee, or Italian Soda.
