Staff were warm and welcoming and the coffee is out of this world, offering a lot of choice. The food is also of high quality and I would recommend anyone who has the chance to visit Bean and Cole!

First time in a cafe since lock down. Appropriate distancing adhered to but still felt cosy. Attentive staff and reasonably priced. A great 'homemade' and fresh feel to the food. Very nice!

Amazing food, great atmosphere, grilled cheese is out of this world! Staff are really friendly, really nice to go somewhere where everything on the menu is thought out properly. Excellent choice of hot and cold drinks and the cakes were beautiful.

I've been coming here since they opened. The loyalty of their customers in supporting them through Lockdown says it all really... The homemade cakes are delicious too

Coffee stop. Nipped in for my caffeine fix whilst on my lunch. Never been in before. Nice coffee. Delicious treats on offer. One way system & hand sanitizer. Coffee available to buy to make at home

Having looked at their facebook page, as they do not have a website, I arrived just after 09.00 looking forward to a warm drink and breakfast as they have rave reviews on here. I was not able to find their menu anywhere. I was told...when i walked in that they do not open till 10am despite their Facebook page stating otherwise and no update provided with regards to change in opening times on their page. So, I walked around town in the freezing cold and rain. Also, i was nervous of my parking time running out at iceland as it is one hour. Anyway, i decided to wait as i was still excited and hopeful for a delicious breakfast. On returning to the shop, i was advised that they had granola or smoothies or a cheese toastie. I ordered a latte which was ok, nothing exceptional compared to other independent coffee shops in chester. What i was surprised by, was the size which was laughable really. Overall, a very limited selection of items and coffee which is overpriced for the size.More
