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!

Have been here twice in the last month. Very tasty meal and the blue cod was a huge feed. Would recommend.

Food and service is great. Good variety of food, Lacks room and tables as it is quite small. Decor and facilities are clean and modern.

Nice little café in the heart of the CBD. Great hummingbird coffee and tasty cheese scones (big enough for two to share). A nice café to catch up with a friend for coffee after shopping. Friendly staff and efficient service.

If we are in Invercargill we often go to Three Bean for breakfast, the only problem with this place is you have to be quick to get a seat because it is always full and for good reason. The atmosphere is brilliant, the menu is great and easy to follow, it is very reasonably priced and the food is delicious.... More

They sell Hummingbird Coffee which is what brought us into the cafe. The food was good and coffee pretty OK to. If having any wraps / salads be wrned these are slightly too laded with mayo..(note to chef - easy off!).
