Was looking for a quick and hearty breakfast and was not disappointed. The staff were exceedingly friendly and the latte was delicious. Well priced, a touch tricky to find, look for the sandwich board on the sidewalk.

Stopped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised with the sandwich. Ordered a turkey chipotle cheese panini. They made it fresh and it came with potato chips. Ate on the deck area. The bathroom was clean.

Most people are accustomed to the usual at a coffee shop, but The Bean comes through in other ways as well. I had nicked my leg on the car door while waiting in line for the ferry and needed ice to reduce potential swelling. Since...More
