I've been a beancounter customer since I found them in Petersburgh, and have been delighted with their expansion

The Bean Counter is a locally owned family business/coffee roastery with branches in Memorial Medical Center (both lower level and in the lobby), in the Springfield First building and also at Montvale Shopping Center, where all their baked goods are made.

This review is based on the Bean Counter in Memorial Medical Center. We used to really enjoy the Bean Counter, Really good sandwiches and baked goods. Unfortunately, they have gone downhill. It started with expansion, and hasn't improved. The turkey and cheese sandwich was dry, as was the chocolate butter cake. The sandwich was nothing but bread, meat and cheese.... More

Wonderful pastries. Over all good specialty coffee drinks. The Chai Tea Latte was a bit to milky and not spicy enough. The barista was friendly and FAST!

Just walking in the door, you know this place is going to be good because it smells incredible. The barista was so friendly, the coffee was awesome, and the chocolate truffles are the best I've ever had. I can't wait to go back and try some of the other brews they have available!

Many coffee shops I go for the atmosphere and interesting employees but so-so coffee. These employees are interesting and the coffee is good. Nice clean, comfortable place.

This place just opened Monday. I have been there twice and both experiences were great. The people were incredibly friendly and helpful. Everything I have tried was delicious. The brownie was quite possibly the best bakery brownie I have ever eaten which is really saying something! My companions could not stop raving about the sandwiches, either. The inside makes great...
