On our first visit, a Saturday morning, it seemed as though our servers were hung over and were, frankly, unfriendly. However, we decided to try them again and found that a different server was very pleasant. The coffee is always very good, albeit a little expensive. One concern might be that the owner is trying to sell the business and... More

Wonderful atmosphere, delicious foods, and a nice selection of coffee beverages. Peruse the art while you wait for your pastry, sandwich, or other treat to be served. Enjoy!

Coffee is always hot and tasty. They make excellent lattes and cafe au lait with the house perks good as well. The counter people are very nice. The have yummy pastries, toffee and you can pick up a newspaper as well. Which is handy in offseason when not much is open in Bethany.

My wife and I make an annual pilgrimage each Fall to Bethany Beach and no trip would be complete without a morning walk on the beach with coffee from the Artful Bean! The coffee and pastries are wonderful and the service excellent!

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.

I recall wheeling a stroller down Atlantic Avenue to arrive at the Artful Bean just past its 7:00 a.m. opening, my oldest had an iced tea for the first time this summer. In addition to caffeinated drinks, the Artful Bean now has an assortment of breakfast and other sandwiches and the lox with cream cheese was perfect one afternoon for... More

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
