This was our first visit to Vanilla Bean. I was excited because they had specialty coffee drinks. When I called to find out how late breakfast was served the gal that answered the phone seemed annoyed and when I said thank you and bye, I was hung up on. I ordered the cinnamon latte, it was luke warm and not... More

My wife and I both ordered the loaded potato soup, it was so salty that neither of us could eat it. My son got the "homemade" Mac and cheese off of the kids menu for 6 dollars, it was straight from the box. This lunch was disappointing to say the least!!

Wild Rice soup--I make it at home, but this is WONDERFUL! My friend had the "white" chile and also wonderful. Didn't have room for the bread pudding--which is awesome. Also saw the Caramel roll on the way out, however, in a hurry and full! Would definitely stop again and I"m sorry to see the bad review--The John Beargrease Sled Dog... More

This was our second visit to the Vanilla Bean. I wish we would have remembered how large the portions were, because I really wanted to order that Caramel roll, but couldn't justify it after gorging myself on my main meal. If i remember correctly the Caramel roll was amazing, and well worth a trip to the Vanilla Bean Bakery and... More

The restaurant was able to handle the volume of customers on my visit. We waited 15 minutes and never had a waitress show up to our table. We had a table next to our get waited on, which was a bummer since they arrived 10 minutes after us. We then felt terrable when a server dumped a whole tray of... More

Stop in any time of day for excellent coffee. Breakfast time is a challenge. Everything is tasty wonderful. I can't choose a favorite. I have stopped here alone and with my husband. The small parking lot makes it an easy stop even on weekends. I also love the Cranberry Club Sandwich for lunch.

Our family went here for lunch. Place was busy which is usually a good sign. The menu stated homemade mac and cheese off of the children's menu. It looked like Kraft(box) variety. The burger off the children's menu was small and overcooked. They took that off of our bill. I ordered the black bean burger with the baked beans. The... More

We choose to walk from our accommodations to the Vanilla Bean and we are glad we did. The food was soooo good! Hubby had the ribs and I had the Cajun Fettuccine dish! Both were so flavourful. The service was great -- timely and courteous but not hovering. A table of young ones that were loud gandered the disapproving looks... More
