“Best food in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Fresh food no prefab eatery here. Great staff and the chef is creative! Fresh baked bread great chili dishes great breakfast place my families favorite, a little noisy and can be crowded, but it is worth it!!

“Excellent coffee bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I love The Bean and only wish it wasn't such a hike for me to get there from where I live. That said, I make it a point to stop in for a cup whenever I am headed to Mesilla to check on our horses.

“Good Coffee and Bad Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

The coffee and funky atmosphere are pretty good but watch out for the baked goods. The chocolate chip cookie I had was rather hard and not too tasty. The blueberry scone was terrible...very doughy, dense and lacking in flavor

“Great start--or anytime--when pedaling(or motoring)!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

On Good Friday, 29MAR2013, Elena celebrated her birthday with a pedal from la MesaNM to Old Mesilla and back. This cycle along NM28 was rather great considering the following: Friday road use was light, very little breeze, not too hot, and a rather flat route despite that part South of Stahlman's Pecans being a bit challenging to pedal(narrow w/ little shoulder). The highlight of pedaling through Old Mesilla is not only observing yesterday in a well-preserved, active, mission & square, but eating (Almost always the highlight for me anywhere!). The Bean is in an excellent location, between the junctions of NM28, NM359, &NM292. Besides extremely good food & java, the friendly folks behind the counter are super professional and it is such a delight to see that this former old-style gas station has been re-born such a fantastic eatery! I really like the mural/artwork on the ceiling of the outside former pump area. This architectural gem may not meet the historic building code of Old Mesilla square, but that's OK; it meets the historic building code of the rise of the automobile! I love it here, especially when getting ready to spend the day on my Doublevision!
