Busy little eatery

Saturday breakfast here was very nice. Dukkah eggs, pancakes, and little plate for our child. Service was very friendly and the food was very good. We will definitely be back for another visit here.

Step 1, forget Darling Harbour as it is a tourist trap that offers crap service and expensive low quality meals for breakfast. Step 2, get a taxi (or drive) to Rozelle and head straight to "The Bean". Great service, awesome meals and reasonably priced. I can personally recommend the Eggs Benedict with salmon. Everyone in the family commented on how... More

I regularly visit The Bean for Breakfast during the week, and sometimes for lunch on the weekend The breakfast menu is brilliant with lots of choices, and some unusual surprises, Dukkah eggs are a standout I love the Black Pudding, and they never seem to get the eggs wrong Very welcoming staff, great coffee and just a wonderful way to...

There are a myriad of choices for breakfast in Rozelle and Balmain but none that the specials menu is a constant surprise. Fresh, warm toasted corn bread with chorizo, poached egg, drizzle of hollandaise sauce and a black bean salsa. Just delicious and friendly prompt service. This is my top breakfast venue!

This is a favourite café in Rozelle but some new additions to the breakfast and lunch menu have taken it to a whole new level. The Egg Durkah and Bombay Eggs are just the best breakfast option. Totally yum! Coffee good, service welcoming and accommodating and no problem at all the accommodate kids. Kids are made to feel welcome and... More

But the Bean 'took the biscuit' :-) It really was excellent. We stopped by for lunch and all of us were very pleased with our food. I chose Pancakes and they were the fluffiest, lightest, tastiest I've had in years. The topping of bananas, peaches and a zingy fruit sauce was excellent. A delight. Service was quick and friendly. Very... More

Great food at reasonable prices, staff who seem to enjoy your visit, a proprietor who genuinely welcomes you, and all in a relaxed but efficient atmosphere; one of the very best in Rozelle

Our Party of 4 (and a half) decided to descend for what was a pretty late breakfast. The bean is in a nice spot in Rozelle opposite a tragic memorial yet still maintains it's unique vibe. Our half had a kiddies pancake with a babycino - the only complaint was that the babycino didn't come with a marshmallow but that... More

Been a while since our first visit and this time didn't disappoint. We did intend to use an Entertainment voucher but noticed a small note on the menu saying they didn't accept them anymore. Poor form pulling out but we stayed anyway. The coffee was very good and the meal was great. The service was quick even though it was... More

Hello Jay L Thank you for your great review. We are very happy you had a good experience at The Bean. I am sorry you were disappointed not to be able to use your voucher and just wanted to explain. Due to the recent explosion across the road the business had to be closed for a month and we suffered... More

First time visit! Ordered the Soft Pork Tacos with Pulled Pork, Salsa, Guacamole, Sour Cream and Lemon Herb Coleslaw - absolutely delicious! To finish coffee and Peanut Butter Bliss Bomb Lamington - yummy! Really friendly service, fab food and coffee, magazines and books to read and good music playing. My new favourite place!
