I loved this little coffee spot, especially as a vegetarian. They had really good coffee and seriously delicious food. From the scones to the breakfast tacos, I loved everything I had here. Everyone I was here with enjoyed it and found something tasty to try....More

This is more than a "hole in the wall"... it is dirty. The coffee is just average and the baked goods dry and tasteless. A real disappointment. I would not go back or recommend.

They did a good job of catering to a vegan/vegetarian's needs. Food was solid but nothing spectacular. I've had better similar food in other college towns, but definitely nothing to complain about. IF you need the funky, counter culture coffee shop/restaurant, this is it for...More

I mean, the coffee is good, but my partner considers himself a coffee [whatever type of connoisseur coffee people call themselves]. It was pretty good coffee, not great though. BUT. BUT! The FOOD...it's some of the tastiest vegetarian/vegan food I've ever had. The Big Daddy...More

This place is super cool and eclectic; I am not sure if they serve meat, I believe it is all vegetarian. My friend had the tofu tacos and they were AMAZING. I had a yogurt/granola parfait and it was so delicious that I went back...More

We stumbled into a real gem! The fresh menu looked exactly what we were looking for, and the smoothies, yogurt and salad fit the bill. We lucked out that it was open mic night, and we really enjoyed all the artists from poetry to singing....More

I really liked the food. For Vegetarian it is difficult to find delicious and healthy food and this is the place.

Great stop on our walk home via Forsyth Park. A light menu selection such as Panini or the Frittata with a wine ticked the boxes after a really hot day. The service is casual but efficient; the chefs quickly produced "something extra" & we soon...More

Stopped in here for lunch - so glad we did. Food was fantastic: the frittata of the day with potatoes, cheese and caramelized onions was superb - not very eggy, but fantastic flavors all the same. The pesto panini also was terrific. Hippie, coffee shop...More

We were planning to have coffee and/or breakfast here the following day, but when we walked by on our way to have dinner at Betty Bombers, we noticed that they also serve a limited number of sandwiches, wine, and beer. After eating our dinner, we...More

Description
Since the Bean (as it’s known in the neighborhood) opened its doors in 2001, we’ve tried to make decisions that are good for our customers, our community, and our environment. Strangely enough, we also believe that this way of doing business is good for the bottom line. Our fair-trade coffee is organic, as is our produce and most of our staple ingredients. We are committed to using locally grown ingredients as much as possible, don’t fry anything, and make most of our food from scratch. We are vegetarian, and very vegan and gluten-free friendly! In 2008 we got rid of disposable plastic ware and we continue to recycle and compost. We host almost nightly events organized by members of the community and we strive to be welcoming to even the strangest among us. Check out our website for upcoming events.
