Excellent coffee shop

This is the place for a coffee lover. With a huge selections of beans and a great selection of lattes, cappuccinos and cold coffee drinks. We came in near closing and were disappointed that they had very few treats left, but I suppose that proves how fresh their baked goods are. Service was... read more

Admittedly, we visited during one of the busiest weeks of the year, but we waited 25 minutes for our lattes and they were prepared incorrectly. I prefer Bailey's coffee bar.

I like the fact one can get a bagel with cream cheese and coffee. All of which is very good, but they make New York City seem like a bargain. I cannot justify going back there based on the value to cost ratio. They have been there for many years, and their business is the tourist trade. I do not... More

We were happy with the two sandwiches we ordered (grilled cuban and an artichoke hearts panini). The prices weren't bad considering how loaded the sandwiches were (there was no skimping to be seen). The coffee my companions ordered was definitely worth mentioning as well, and another customer said to us that the decaf was delicious. I'd recommend a visit to... More

We stopped here three times during our stay and enjoyed the coffee drinks, breakfast burritos, scones and bagels. It was nice place to stop for a quick bite. They had outdoor seating and an indoor area with wi fi. We wanted to stop back for ice cream later in the week but just ran out of time.

We swing by the Sanibel Bean for a to-go cappuccino and had a very nice experience. We struck up a conversation with the guy that took our order, only to find out his family was from our hometown! Very friendly. The cappuccino was hot a very good. We've never eaten here but I'd definitely consider it next trip!

While they had great coffee here, several items on the menu were not available (but still listed). I wasn't the only disappointed customer the day I was there. Besides the drinkable coffee, they do have a small menu and Wi-Fi/internet. If you're a coffee drinker on Sanibel, you'll want to make a stop here. Just don't expect much else.

This is a little place that specializes in various blends of coffee, sandwiches and salads. The food is good - plenty of it - and reasonably priced. The fruit plate is one of my favorites, with the various sandwiches being close behind. If you are on the island and don't want to spend a lot of your vacation time in... More

I'm a sanibel resident, and I've been coming to the bean for years, but I have to say as time passes the whole place is going downhill. I've always loved the food, but it's getting harder and harder to deal with the service that can't be described any way other than awful. I've been ignored for half an hour when... More

There is not a lot of excellent food on Sanibel Island. So I was pleased with my Cuban Sandwich and fresh squeezed lemonade. We were treated well and SB had a nice outdoor dining area.
