Ice cream is so-so. Service was horrible. Guy behind the counter barked orders to file on through the door. After eating ice cream I went back for coffee, but the three girls behind the counter totally ignored me for five minutes--I even had cash in my hand! Terrible, terrible, and terrible.

Excellent for stopping there after shopping specially if you have kids or grandkids. Great atmosphere, sitting on the cute tables and chairs outside, enjoying the breeze and being able to carry on conversations...

Ice cream was good but not homemade. Also they have bottled sodas and coffee. Nice refresher during the day! Cute shop!

Don't shop til you drop in Fairhope, although you could! The barrista made my Iced decaf nonfat latte in a flash and after some sitting on the deck, we were ready for more cute shops! Also good for ice cream.

Whether you are in the mood for ice cream or a cup of coffee this is the place to go! Just a small store front with a few tables inside and out on the front porch. We always stop here when we visit Fairhope! It's a real treat!

Riding through downtown Fairhope on a drizzly evening, we encountered Mr. Gene's Beans just when we decided that we'd like some coffee & maybe some cake. We entered this totally charming place with its full (yet not crowed-feeling) dining area & found two seats across from the ice cream counter. Despite the nicely stocked pastry case (no cake), we couldn't... More

Mr Gene's Beans is and has been a favorite of our children and now grand children. They have many flavors of ice cream, both hand dipped and soft serve. They also offer speciality items such as banana splits, floats, and Sunday's. Coffees and soft drinks are also available.

It's a nice place to stop and get a treat. Not an expensive place either. Hubby and I love the place. My Mother loves their coffee.
