The service is super rude. Both employees were walking around with their earbuds in and the radio was so loud we could not even hear each other talk. The register employee just stood and looked at us. The coffee was ok. The scones were good. I prefer local coffee spots, this had me wishing for a Starbucks.....a last resort for us, but surely better than this. Do better Sanibel Bean....or go out of business.

My boyfriend only drinks iced coffee, so we sought it out on vacation. He said the coffee was solid, and we went 3 times on our trip. I had an average iced tea. He had a yummy breakfast sandwich, but there aren’t gluten free options, so I didn’t order any food. Nice seating area and plenty of parking. A little slow and seemed like they ran out of things each day (chai one day, bagels the other).

Been here a few different times and have been consistently disappointed. The staff seems inattentive to the point of almost ignoring you and it's not because they have a drive-thru that they give priority too like some other places. The coffee is OK but not great and this seems to be the situation everywhere in the Fort Myers area. So compared to the competition (locally) this cafe seems no better or worse than most but you will surely be disappointed if you're expecting anything similar to a cafe in NYC or anywhere in Europe. Strangely good coffee just seems to be hard to find here... especially a good espresso.

As the husband of a loyal vanilla latte drinker (addict, lol), where year for the past 6 years we have visited the Sanibel Bean every morning while on vacation and the coffee is excellent. They also have a good selection of muffins, sandwiches, and smoothies as well as ice cream for everyone. The atmosphere is casual and we always ride our bikes to the Bean and enjoy our drinks in the outdoor patio. The service could be improved but I guess that's island time!

Best Coffee on Sanibel! Coffee beans are ground each time a pot is made - unbelievable flavors with 4 different choices. If you love coffee, this is the place to go!
