Had a nice breakfast and coffee

Had breakfast over the weekend prior to hitting the Farmers Market. The food was nice and fresh and the coffee was great. You can tell this is a place that has a lot of regulars that like to hang out and enjoy their coffee. The staff was great and a pleasure to chat with.

A great coffee shop, my favorite, with good snacks as well. The walls are usually covered with interesting paintings (from the Sunnyvale Art Club).

A very nice casual coffee house that also serves crepes, sandwiches and baked goods. Atmosphere, really good coffee, pleasant service. It's like you've been there before, easy to fit in, read a little, chat. The crepes were very good, light, and well filled. Prices were reasonable. I'd stop in anytime.

Great coffee. Savory breakfast which included crepes, breakfast sandwiches, and fruit. Located in the Murphys historic neighborhood of Sunnyvale. Great place to have breakfast and hang with friends.

The Bean Scene is a nice relaxing place to spend some time on Murphy Street. It's good for both adults and children and my husband and I enjoyed coming here with our 3 little grandchildren---4 and under. They liked the eggs, bacon, and bagel plate---one plate was enough for all 3, and we enjoyed the coffee and pastries. The apple... More

It's amazing how everybusiness has one review that has to be so extreme. The previous review (what an embarrassment) is an example of someone with nothing constructive to say. I have gone to the Bean scene many times. As with any business, there are some visits which are better than other but what is consistent is the care and genuine... More

The coffee is burned, the pastries are stale, the service slow, and the inside of the shop is old--and not in a "cool coffee shop" way--in a "needs to be remodeled now" type of way. If these weren't enough drawbacks for you, it's likely that if you're on Murphy and looking to get a cup of coffee, The Bean Scene... More
