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

Small 'artsy' sandwich shop. Had a vegetarian omelette which was excellent. My wife had veggie quesadillas which were also good. Both were advertised to come with a side of salad - o my thing we got was a small dollop of salsa dip. Was that...More

As a quirky coffee shop with more to offer, they serve up a nice mocha. They also offer a wide variety of teas and coffee drinks, below Starbucks prices, which makes them even more delicious. I say visit after a stroll through Forsyth Park.

This is a good little cafe looking onto Forsyth park (good for people watching if you can bare the outside heat). Managed to get served quite quickly and the service was good. Quite like the quirky little trophies you get as table/ order numbers. The...More

We stopped in for breakfast before a stroll through Forsyth Park. This "green" restaurant offers great coffee, delicious food/pastry (my husband loved the blueberry chocolate muffin) and a very friendly atmosphere.

We enjoyed their coffee and had some nice lunch salads with vegetable and protein. The staff was nice although everything took a long time to prepare.

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.
