Cincinnati's favorite local breakfast chain Sleepy Bee Cafe is opening up a new concept in Avondale on Dec. 9.
The quick-service eatery will be named Waggle Breakfast and Bowls, which refers to a special dance that honey bees perform when searching for their food.
"This amazing performance — which involves flight patterns resembling figure-eights — is a form of collective intelligence, where bees share information about their location of flowers where nutritious nectar and pollen can be found, water sources, and their hive," a press release from the restaurant explains. "While it seems exotic, to us this feels similar to how we humans communicate with friends and family about favorite places to eat, drink, work and rest,"
The new restaurant will mirror Sleepy Bee's focus on community, quality and health but will offer an experience more catered to "busy, buzzy lifestyles." The menu will offer a variety of breakfast and lunch dishes, ranging from pancakes (both buttermilk or gluten-free) and egg scrambles to made-to-order lunch bowls. They will also offer locally-roasted coffee and teas.
Waggle will be located at 3440 Burnet Ave. on Cincinnati Children's campus, across from the Ronald McDonald House. It will be open 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. on Saturdays on Sundays.
