Great Coffee!

This is a great little shop. The coffee is great and the artwork is lovely. We bought several pictures for our girls bedroom. The service was very friendly and the bathrooms were clean. The hubby especially loved the mint latte. They have comfy chairs and sofas all around the shop. They also... read more

Each year that my family vacations in Bethany Beach, we have put the Artful Bean on our list special places to visit. This year's visit, however, was beyond disappointing. Upon arrival we stood in line for a fair amount of time, which was understandable given that the Artful Bean is usually well worth a wait and we had waited a... More

We stopped at the Artful Bean after a small bike ride from the Sea Colony. We found that it was good and healthy but a little expensive even for beach prices!

I go to this coffee shop every time I'm in Bethany. Great coffee and I love the art that is for sale. It has gotten very popular, so I don't go there any more to read the paper or work on my computer.

We went there the first day of our week long stay as we did not have time to go shopping yet. We just wanted a cup of coffee. Stood in line for some time, a lot of workers but it seemed to take awhile. Ordered a regular coffee... I was given a cup and a thank you. I was not... More

Just get an early morning latte so is fine for that. Nice comfy seating and casual environment. Not all places in town let you use their WiFi but here they do

If you are a coffee lover on vacation in Bethany, this is the place for you. Quaint with free wi-fi and great pastry. Convenient parking. Close to playground!

Decent coffee shop that is good for the area as there are no Starbucks or decent coffee shops nearby. Good place to sit and gather your thoughts.

We stopped here four or five times on a recent beach trip (three years after my previous review). The coffee remains very good, and the staff seems to handle special espresso-bar requests very well. Breakfast pastries are great, too. Let me make clear that we WILL continue to enjoy coffee/pastries here! On our last visit, after an early bike ride,... More

While my friend and I merely stopped in here this year for a cool drink on a sweltering day (frozen lemonade for me and a specially made frozen chai for her), there were daily breakfast and lunch items posted on the board. While waiting for your order, you can browse the artwork and jewelry options available to purchase. When we... More
