This is a cozy coffee shop right downtown walking distance to the historical park and whaling museum. Its not like other tiny coffee shops (although those are great too), lotsa space with high ceilings, nice view of downtown and choice of music. I ordered a light roast coffee which was delicious.

I was visiting New Bedford for the day so I stopped into The Green Bean for a latte. Cozy ambiance and great menu. Latte was terrific. They serve food as well as coffee drinks so I will definitely be back! Highly recommend.

Very modest inexpensive place for lunch close to the historic district. Good food, friendly staff. Nothing fancy but very pleasant and good wifi.

After touring the national historic site/park and whaling museum, I stopped here for a sandwich and iced wild berry tea. The cranberry turkey sandwich was recommended and turned out to be a great choice. Real turkey breast and a tasty cranberry sauce made this Panini-style sandwich truly enjoyable.

An authentic coffee house. They have all the specialty drinks you can imagine. The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxed. The staff is friendly and helpful. The prices are very fair.

This was a surprising find in New Bedford... Many vegetarian food options and college kids hanging out! We tried yogurt w fruit and granola which was a bit small but very fresh, and a chicken wrap sandwich which was also very good. The food is good and reasonably priced.

We want to love this place but service can be spotty and staff sometimes seem indifferent. The coffee is good as are the food choices. A few too many odd attitudes and food errors keep us away.
