Welcome to the site of The Worker Bee Café!
Since acquiring ownership of the Café in October 2012, the father and son team, Rick and Rick, have welcomed and enjoyed the opportunity to provide their patrons with the finest downtown Carpinteria Café experience. They appreciate the feedback and suggestion, for continued growth and success in satisfying their patrons’ palates.
The Café’s success is, in part, an extension of its family’s traditional philosophy, whereby, “the nexus of any home is its kitchen. The arbitrator of any discussion is a well prepared, tasting meal. While you may disagree on the substance of the discussion, you will however, agree to continue the discussion with another well prepared and tasting meal…” Rick and Rick have created this environment by offering an intimate, family feel in the downtown area, without the stress of the big city.
Their breakfast and lunch menu has a very simple, bold, vibrant and flavorful approach to the food they serve. To this end, and along with their weekly specials, they now offer beer and wine, savory milkshakes, malts, ice cream soda floats, and an assortment of gluten free products.
Rick and Rick, and their staff, welcome you to their kitchen to savor freshly prepared meals, made to order; ranging from the raved about corned beef hash, to the delectable and daring mango/avocado milkshake. Convenient parking is available in front and back of the Café. To top it off, they offer pet friendly seating on the back patio where your companions are welcome to join you.
