Pretty good coffee and food shop, although it was too polished for my tastes. It seemed like if the lights were lower a jazz club might start up instantly. I only had a cinnamon roll here that was pretty good. The kids had hot chocolates and liked them but, hey...they are just got chocolate, not a science project. This was... More

Been to the Bean multiple times - a great place for a tasty - and beautiful! Latte and a muffin before boarding the ferry for 'merica. Staff super friendly, coffee drinks at the right temperature, and pastries and breakfast sammies pretty good too. Plus a monitor showing ferry arrivals so you dont miss the loading!

The staff were friendly upon all... More

This is the best place to go for a good coffee on the island. The staff is friendly, and the food they offer is tasty. Not a huge selection of items, but if you just want a breakfast sandwich or yogurt parfait or oatmeal, they provide nice above-average options. Nice place to start off your day or stop mid-day to...
