coffe time

Great coffee and ice cream, but menu a bit limited. Good staff but the property needs more maintenance.

We've tried all of the coffee places on Sanibel and the Sanibel Bean the best coffee on the Island. Friendly staff, great service.

If you're looking for a quick stop breakfast spot with a large variety of coffee options, this is the place! Flavored coffees, hot or iced as well as plenty of quick breakfast sandwiches, bagels and more! Plenty of seating and a great staff, plus they get the orders out fast! Definitely will go again and recommend!

We stopped here almost every day of our trip to pick up some coffee. They have smoothies, light/medium/dark coffee selections as well as custom coffee smoothies. They also had selections of pastries or you could order other to go items. They also have a lunch selection, but we only visited during breakfast.

We enjoy the Bean very much. Great coffee drinks and breakfast sandwiches. The oatmeal is quite good also. This is a place we go to a couple days a week. Love it!

Good ice cream, cool bumper sticker! Kids loved this place-so did we. Nice little stop along Periwinkle Way as you cruise the long thin island.

The outdoor patio on the side is a tropical oasis. The coffee and sandwiches are great and the prices are fair for the island.

This place comes with a lot of hype but does not measure up to expectations. The staff is disinterested, the portions are bare minimum, and there are many better places on teh Island to get your coffee, pastry, or ice cream.

I travel to Sanibel Island frequently. I look forward to visiting the Sanibel bean because of their service and quality. This past March I visited and the service was awful. They forgot my order and were talking to the woman in front of me and I was completely ignored. I don't know what happened. There must be new owners
