Been here solo and w the kids a couple of times. Good coffee and other choices too. It's quirky and a local find. Lots of folks checking out the arts and crafts too which look interesting. Recommended!

If you are looking for a light breakfast, this place is great. Good coffee and good food in a relaxing setting. I just love their egg and bagel classic and there are lots of creative choices to please everyone. The menu is vegetarian so you won't find bacon or other meat options.

On our recent trip to Bethany Beach, we would visit the Artful Bean for our morning cups of coffee. Both the coffee and my wife's Mochas added a nice start to the day. We appreciated the opportunity to avoid the coffee maker in our rental house! We would have loved to hang out, as the atmosphere seemed inviting and interesting,... More

I really don't want to tell you about this place. Go West (on 26) my friend and you will find this gem. Breakfast, lunch or dinner; everything is good.

The shop provides both made to order espresso drinks and a selection of self serve drip coffees. I would have to... More

Cool place with great coffee and a cozy atmosphere. Having a gift/ art shop and living room atmosphere provides a great diversion at the beach.
