- The Short Order
The Beestro, a cute café tucked into an alcove on Marcy Street, is a charming sun-drenched little space — a particularly welcome escape on a blustery winter day. Staff members are cheerful and friendly, and they will chat enthusiastically about the daily menu offerings. The farmers market salads are always alluringly fresh looking, but soup and sandwiches are the workhorses, and they deserve your attention. The Beestro does brisk to-go business, but you can also enjoy your meal in an upper-level dining room with a view of the street or at a sidewalk table. If you’re on the move, call ahead and The Beestro will deliver your order to your car, curbside. Recommended: breakfast burrito, sweet potato-tamarind soup, achiote chicken sandwich, roasted veggie wrap, and “the Brookie.”

That’s generally the case at The Beestro, a cute café tucked into an alcove off Marcy Street.
It’s a charming little space. A wall of glass and decorative wrought iron faces south onto the street, which means the place is nearly always sun-drenched and warm — particularly welcome on a blustery winter day. Staff members offer a friendly greeting when you step in the door, and they will chat enthusiastically about the day’s choices.
