Yes, I realize this photo of the logo is not taken from the right angle…

It was a sunny Saturday afternoon in November when the blogger girls gathered for a good old-fashioned natter about… what else, gossip!

Interior @ The Bee, Jaya One
Can you see our table in the picture above?

The Bee fits all of our criteria for a meeting spot. A cozy setting that is great for photography, an extensive and delicious brunch menu, bemused staff (very important!) who are tolerant of the noise and demands that our group of females can be capable of coming up with. The suggestion to meet at The Bee came from Kahani, and as one of us, her suggestion was definitely spot on.

The Bee tags itself as “Your neighborhood food and drink hangout” and it’s a popular place on the weekends, as evidenced by the steady stream of customers that came and left during the 4 hours we were there. Evidently brunch as a weekend past-time is gaining popularity amongst Malaysians.

Decor @ The Bee, Jaya One

The only slight drawback about The Bee as a meeting place are the tables. For our slightly larger group of 9, we had to put together tables in order to find enough space for all the food we ordered. Oh, and the chairs could be slightly more comfy for *ahem* long-winded folk like us.

Service at The Bee is good, but could be improved upon as there were only 2 servers for the entire restaurant. Nevertheless, they got the job done, and with good will too, seeing the numerous orders of food and drink our table alone had.

I simply love all the photo opportunities this place has to offer me. Sitting down, standing up, wandering around – each different angle shows another side of The Bee that is equally as delightful to capture in my viewfinder. I can imagine all manner of photoshoots taking place at The Bee.

Offerings @ The Bee, Jaya One

The Bee does a pretty good brunch spread that is available on public holidays and weekends only, superseding their regular menu. The highlight of the weekend brunch menu has to be the ice cream from The Last Polka.

I found The Bee sticker on the glass to be really cute and a good way of advertising the restaurant brand.

Brunch @ The Bee, Jaya One

Our party of bloggers ordered everything available on the brunch menu and even repeated some orders because the food was that good. The picture above shows the Huevos Rancheros Wrap (MYR 17.00).

The Bee Big Breakfast (MYR 24.00)

The one thing I remember the most is the rosti that comes with every brunch set – we loved it so much that we wiped out The Bee’s remaining stock of rosti on that day!

Omelette @ The Bee, Jaya One

I personally loved this Smoked Salmon Omelette (MYR 26.00), which was filled with smoked salmon and melted cheese. Such a delectable combination!

Brunch @ The Bee, Jaya One

As always, sharing the brunch sets is always a good idea as one gets to try a greater selection of what’s on offer.

Alas, I did not get to taste this Truffled Scrambled Eggs set (MYR 27.00) as it was devoured not long after this photo was taken. But I heard that it was good and yummeh.

Eggs Benedict @ The Bee, Jaya One

The nice and wobbly poached eggs that came with the Salmon Benedict brunch set (MYR 25.50) gave rise to private jokes between Connie and Xin at the other end of the table.

The Last Polka ice cream

And finally, to round off a very satisfying brunch, we had the piece de resistance – The Last Polka ice cream. With unique flavors of Guinness, Horlicks, Black Sesame and Teh Tarik as but some of the flavors we sampled, this brunch was truly a feast.
