Stopped into the Bean on our way to the Sunday farmer's market to get a cup of coffee and a bagel. it is a nice little neighborhood coffee shop with indoor and outdoor seating. Ordering is done at the cashier and the food and specialty coffees are prepared while you wait. Regular coffees are available from several pots at the... More

So, last year I left a very unfavorable review of "The Bean" (as locals sometimes call it). I even said I might never return. But I finally decided to return this year just to see, and I was pleasantly surprised. Service is still slow, but it was friendlier and less aloof than it was in the last two years when... More

Ordered the espresso and Cuban coffee - both delicious. Quaint coffee shop that also offers breakfast, sandwiches and wraps, paninis, salads and ice cream. Extensive list of coffee items. Convenient location right on Periwinkle Way.

We used to vacation on Sanibel many years ago. The Bean has changed since those days. The service was terrible, the food when received was wrong, the prices were high, and the tables were not clean. Not recommended.

A recent amazing trip to Sanibel fell short here! I am a coffee lover and was excited to find this cute shop. All of us (strangers) in line were amazed at the unprofessional behavior and rudeness of the women taking our order. Although the coffee was awesome, I will go elsewhere for caffeine next visit to the Island. I may... More

Wow! The service was exceptionally poor. I watched the woman worker get very short and irritated not only with me but 3 other customers while I waited. The only reason I am giving this any stars at all was b/c the coffee is great. Visit at your own risk and don't ask the workers for anything even suggestions on what... More

I have been coming to the Bean for about 25 yrs. Noticed the past couple years service getting worse and worse. Today went to order a bagel melt ( have always enjoyed it) I was told they have no way of melting the cheese, so a no go. They made my mocha wrong ( wanted decaffeinated). After coming here for...

Variety of ice cream, coffee and tea, sandwiches. Ample inside and outside seating. We stopped at a slow time in the afternoon for ice cream, my hubby's favorite. I had coffee latte.... delicious. Counter service. Pleasant environment.
