Review: Beezy's Cafe



Beezy's namesake creator is a thirty-one-year-old with a ferocious strength of will, a finely tuned business plan, and an angel investor-one of her favorite customers when she worked at Petoskey's Roast and Toast cafe, who, she says, "turned out to be a gazillionaire." Launched last November, with an aim of providing "simple, honest food," and with dedicated service from an offbeat, friendly crew, Beezy's attracted an instant, well-deserved following.

Mayhew's communitarian cafe is housed in a graceful 1865 brick Italianate building next to a storefront Pentecostal music school, across from a strip joint, a couple of doors down from the Dreamland Theater, and not far from the local-food advocates at Growing Hope. Clearly, there are a lot of different constituencies in the neighborhood, but it feels like most of them could find happiness here, at least in the form of a sandwich and a cup of coffee.

It's a handsome space, but not in a glossy-magazine kind of way that makes people feel insufficiently cool. Mayhew painted some of the plaster walls a sunny yellow accented with eggplant and steely blue trim but left unpainted the brick wall that runs the length of the dining room. She added floors of recovered ash wood-from trees felled by the emer-ald ash borer-and exposed the original tin ceiling.
