Charming little place with excellent, fresh, tasty food and great coffee. There were nice food choices for people with special food needs like gluten or dairy free or for vegetarians. The owner/chef was friendly and helpful.

Went to meet with friends a couple of times in this Café. Always a nice and welcoming place and the owner is friendly. Really like the décor, the books , the couch and the unique flooring. The coffee and snacks are great too.

One get the impression of a intellectual hangout. Lots of books and a comfortable couch to crash on. The coffee is good and fresh, the snacks are excellent.

Always friendly welcome and local place. Good place to stop and grab lunch or a coffee without the feel of a corporate chain. Love these types of places where the food is good and service is warm.

Have visited this cafe numerous times. Love the secluded location and the coziness of this little cafe. Good variety of breakfast/lunch offerings and so far, everything I've tried has been delicious. Friendly atmosphere. Small patio outside but not inviting. Overlooks parking lot.

Always a cheery greeting from Frank, the owner when you walk into this quaint little coffeehouse! A cup of delicious coffee and tasty, homemade lunches! The borscht is one of my favourites! An abundance of sandwich choices too! Also, if you need some quiet time,...More

If you hate the big coffee conglomerates and want something different, head over to On The Bean. Great coffee and eats, nifty atmosphere, comfy chairs, and tons of books to read. They just celebrated 20 years. Support your local indy shop! You'll love it.
