“Like The Sanibel Bean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

My family and I have been coming here for years. I love their breakfast bagels and bacon. My husband likes their wraps. Great place to chill and eat (in-doors or out).

“Can't get a good cup of coffee”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Tried twice recently for just "a good strong cup of coffee". Found it bland. Nothing special. Won't go back. Too bad, because convenient location and outdoor seating with 2 options - out front or at side in the shade. Inside decor is sparse and holds little appeal.

“Best coffee on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

The Bean has great coffee, and pretty darn good cranberry muffins, among quite a few other options. They serve brewed flavored coffee, which is the main reason I go when I'm on SAnibel, but my husband (coffee snob) likes the Sumatra there as well.

“OMG Better than Starbucks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Don't waste your time looking for Starbucks on the island (it's on Captiva, by the way). Sanibel Bean puts them to shame. I had the Chai Latte - Oh. My. God. To die for!

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Always a stop on our visit to Sanibel. Just a pleasant place to enjoy a "good" cup of coffee and a nice piece of pastry.
