Beezy's Cafe

Beezy’s Cafe looks like a thriving business. The six-year-old restaurant and coffeehouse draws crowds for breakfast and lunch, employs 16 people, has a trail of glowing reviews for its “hippy vibe” and “super friendly” staff, and recently extended its hours to serve dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. But to banks, it’s a risky venture with little appeal.

A popular downtown Ypsilanti eatery is expanding its hours.  The owners have several reasons for deciding to stretch out a bit.

When you walk into Beezy's Cafe at lunchtime, you're usually hard pressed to find a seat.  That's one of the reasons owner Bee Roll is planning to keep Beezy's open evenings in the near future.
