About The Worker Bee Café

Welcome to the site of The Worker Bee Café!

Since acquiring ownership of The Worker Bee 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 suggestions, for continued growth and success in satisfying their patrons’ palates.


The Worker Bee 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…” The Worker Bee Café 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, The Worker Bee Café offers beer, wine, kombucha, and an assortment of gluten-free products.


The Worker Bee Café and their staff, welcome you to their kitchen to savor freshly prepared meals, made to order; ranging from their house-made raved about corned beef hash, delectable chorizo and daring jalapeño bacon. Convenient parking is available in front and back of The Worker Bee Café.


To top it off, they offer pet friendly seating on the back patio where your companions are welcome to join you.

"Really great service, great prices, and good veggie options!  Loved this place and would definitely return the next time we're in town."


Carol-Ann M., Canyon County, CA - Yelp Review

"We came here for a breakfast with gluten free options, and they did not disappoint. The GF pancakes were delicious and the toast was so good I almost thought they made a mistake and gave me regular bread. The owner was so friendly, service was great. Will definitely return next time we're in town!"
