I went in on a weekend. The two people behind the counter seemed overwhelmed handling the order of the one other guy in the place. Blenders where cranking away and they ran around making several drinks - so I stood at the counter for a while. It became apparent no one was going to acknowledge or speak to me, so... More

On our way home we stopped at the Sanibel Bean to grab a quick cup of coffee. I've been coming to Sanibel long enough to know things move a little slower here, but this place moves at a snails pace. There was only one person behind the counter taking all orders and making all the coffee. The line was at... More

Great place to start your day or even grab lunch. Their coffee is very good with plenty of options to eat. We enjoyed their oatmeal, granola, and bagel sandwiches.

The Sanibel Bean is a must-visit for my boys every time we stay on the island. It's a great place for a hearty but fast breakfast - the younger kids love the huge bowls of oatmeal and the rest of us like the generous breakfast sandwiches and burritos. Since food is prepared fresh, it's not fast food, but it's still... More

We always ride our bikes to The Bean when vacationing in Sanibel. The coffee selection is good but I just can't stand the burnt smell inside. Luckily, there is outdoor seating. The service is always lackluster but we love the decor.

Stopped for a late lunch. The turkey bacon club sandwich was super. Lemonade hit the spot. Air conditioning was weak and the place could have been cleaner. But food was good and I would eat here again.

They really need more people behind the counter, but it was very good. Been there twice this week, and will probably go a time or two more. The folks in Bailey's are probably friendlier, but I think I slightly prefer the latte at the Bean.

We visited the Sanibel Bean for the first time this morning. The woman who took our order was rude to us. She handed my husband his change and told us our order number was 41. My beverage was called out but my husband's beverage was not. When my husband politely asked a staff member if they remembered to make his... More
