Been here a few times - the people are very nice and always friendly. Also enjoy the iced coffee - and the muffins.

“Nice people, good food, beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Those who come here have to remember things are made to order when you order, so service is understandably slower than a place that has stuff precooked. I meet people here for business meetings and friends here for a day browsing and beaching; I keep coming back. Their "fru-fru" drinks are fun, and the staff always friendly.
True story- immediately after Superstorm Sandy a friend of mine was walking along from Asbury Park thru Ocean Grove and really had to use a bathroom. Barbaric Bean was the only place open, but their bathrooms weren't working. The woman in Barbaric Bean took my friend to her own house to use her private bathroom. That's the type of good caring people you will experience here.

“Breakfast is Great”

Cold brewed iced coffee, bacon egg and cheese on a croissant = absolutely perfect way to kick off a beach day!

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Nothing to dislike here. Great coffee, great service. Again, a bit busier in the summer months, but worth the wait.
