Great all-American mom-and-pop restaurant. The food was very good and the atmosphere was full of character. The server, perhaps the owner, speaks a mile a minute and could stand to slow down a bit--with no likely loss of productivity. I'd definitely return.

Food was good. Had the chiken fried steak with potatos and biscuit. Everything was great :). And friendly staff ofcourse.

Delightful! Charming host. Quaint setting. Short stack might be short, but they were 8 inches round! Blueberry pancakes were fabulous. I really enjoyed my chicken fried steak. Both our eggs were perfect. Just a really nice place to stop for brunch on our weekend away. Nothing not to like about this classic diner.

Every time I come here the service is great. Friendly staff, food is phenomenal. So whenever you are in town in Carp for breakfast or lunch Worker Bee is a must, you can not go wrong with any of the food choices.

Phenomenal food excellent customer service. Ordered the Ruben and fries via calling in my order. It took very little time for the food to be ready and the gentleman behind the counter was extremely polite. Between checking on drinks and checking on patrons he rang up my order in a prompt and courteous manner. I was asked if I needed anything to go with my meal napkins cutlery condiments etc.. and genuinely felt like I was important to him as a person not just a customer. Once I was squared away with all that I needed I sat down to a perfect Ruben. Generous portions of meat and sauerkraut with an amazing dressing on perfectly toasted Rye. The fries were thick steak cut and light and golden with a touch of salt and black pepper making them delicious and perfect for mopping up the sauerkraut and dressing which had escaped while I was eating (i did mention the generous amount of everything in the sandwich...). I am truly grateful for finding the Worker Bee and every chance I get I plan on stopping by for a meal. 5 out of 5 simply because the rating doesn't go any higher. P.s there is public parking behind the cafe which is nice in Carpinteria.

My son and I stopped by for breakfast. The most amazing corned beef hash that I have ever had. Also try the sausage and biscuits. The two Rick's were so friendly they made the visit memorable.

I came here for breakfast with a large group (at least 15 people). There was only one cook and one server, but they kept up with us. The food was really good! Large omelet and big portion of breakfast potatoes, plus a homemade biscuit! Another member of my group said that the muffin she ordered was the best she had ever tasted. Very friendly staff members. Great experience if you are in the area!
