New Community Cafe Opens


The Queen Bee Cafe located on the corner of E. Madison Street and 22nd Avenue, opened its doors for the first time to the Seattle community. 

Dwayne Clark, Founder and CEO of the local assisted-living company, Aegis Living, established the Queen Bee in memory of his mother. The owner’s admiration for his mother, Colleen Clark, was the inspiration to build the cafe. Colleen was a single mother of British roots who provided for her family as a hard-working line cook. 

“We are so excited to provide this neighborhood with a true community cafe,” stated Culinary Service Director, Justin Sledge. “Our focus is to give back to the community around us by donating all proceeds to one not-for-profit organization each quarter. We are honored to have partnered with the YMCA for the first quarter.” 

Whether your taste buds crave savory or sweet, the Queen Bee Cafe offers traditional English crumpets in a new way with locally sourced products and produce in tasty combinations, along with a cup of Stumptown coffee or espresso. 

The Queen Bee Cafe is open daily from 7am until 4pm. For more information about the Queen Bee Cafe, please contact Shannon Monaghan, Cafe Manager at [email protected]
