Located in the Georgia Quay on Campbell River’s historic Pier Street, the Beehive Cafe is as rich in history as it is in decadent desserts. Sip your latte while walking along the waterfront — we guarantee you’ll enjoy it.
The Bee Hive Café was built in 1918, and started as an ice cream parlour with a saloon as well as a pool room. The Bee Hive was the first to bring a soft serve ice cream machine to Campbell River – specially ordered from Chicago to supply the town with a cold treat during the hot summer months.
“It never bothered you to go alone to the Beehive. You knew sooner or later you’d meet someone you knew. It was such a social place for many people. It wasn’t just a teen’s café, older people went there too. Everyone was comfortable there. It was a real family place.”
– Pat Turner Interview From 1988
