Best coffee in Southland?

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... read more

Enjoyed a nice toasted cheese sandwich and great cup of coffee here and as the day was good at the time took the opportunity to sit outside. Friends have told me that the three bean cafeteria is a above average place that is good to go to and I agree.

We are visitors and chose this cafe as there were tables outside - we enjoyed sitting in the sun and watching life in Invercargill. Service was friendly and swift - I had a huge Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato toasted sandwich with plenty of aioli which I can recommend as it was really delicious.

Coffee was good, food was average. Had a sweet chilli chicken salad for $10 (wasn't worth the money) must have been the small portion. Had to dig around for the chicken which made it hard to find because they were very small.... But I found three those.... Service good

Delicious food. Both have a great menu and also cafe style food you can take away if your in a hurry. But if your going for lunch and want to order off the menu, you need to be in early as their kitchen closes at 2pm on the dot.

I bought a coffee & what I thought had asked for (a baked potato) had it to take away. I got back to work & realized $17.60 later that I had bought a half baked potato with some weird red sauce splashed on it & a bit of chopped cabbage lying next to it!!! No filling in the potato! It... More

Very good coffee, service was friendly and welcoming. Although seating is a little cramped. Would go there again though.

I always come to the three bean cafe when in Invercargill. The choice of food for breakfast and lunch is great and varied both from the display counter and kitchen. Staff are very friendly and helpful, even when asked for something a little different to the menu displayed. Highly recommend!
