I enjoyed a big breakfast here, which is always my measure of how good a cafe is. This was about average, i'd have to say 6.5/10 for this one. Overall no surprises & didn't go away hungry.

They claim to have a wide range of gluten free options but it seemed to be quite limited and egg heavy. We had a vegetable frittata and a bacon bucket (kind of bacon omelette roll) which were both nice and fine for a light lunch or snack. Could have been more gluten free options including some type of carbohydrate.

Nice café with friendly service and nice coffee. Very relaxed atmosphere and comfortable chairs. Exactly what we wanted after a long drive. Food available looked good too, though we didn't eat.

While in Invercargill and looking for somewhere to take a break we found the Three Bean Cafe. All I can say is that the service, food and coffee was excellent. The staff were very friendly and the meal we had was fresh and tasty. You should not go past this cafe.

The Three Bean must be one of the best and most popular cafes in Invercargill. We had a most enjoyable and wholesome lunch here The selection of food from the cabinet and blackboard is excellent and all at good prices. We chose a beef wrap and a salad croissant, both with a salad which were really tasty and ample proportions.Then... More

Certainly the best coffee I have found in Southland. I stopped at Three Bean for breakfast in Feb 2015 and found it to be very nice, well priced and delivered in good time. The only reason I haven't returned in may 15 is that they don't open early enough (7:00am is a bit late for me this time). Friendly staff... More
