Very good burgers and fries. I was impressed. They are a bit pricey but good for a change and nice veggie burger option.

The Mean Bean Cafe is a great place to eat, and the service is great. We have enjoyed many meals at The Mean Bean. And, the desserts are all homemade.

I've had lunch there twice in the past couple of months. It is clear that The Mean Bean attracts loyal customers, and the wait staff seem to know individuals' quirks and preferences. On my first visit I had a spinach salad; it was delicious, fresh,...and generous; one of the friends I was with ordered the Reuben--it looked wonderful! The second time I visited I ordered a Vegetarian Reuben, but asked that it be only lightly toasted. However, the sandwich was a serious disappointment. It was on a white bread bun; there was one very small slice of cheese and a smattering of slaw along with mushrooms (good) and onions (raw, and not normally a part of a Reuben.) I had to wind up eating it with my fork as it wouldn't stay together. I was still hungry when it was gone. The place is quite small but attracts a steady clientele, so if you go during bad weather, choose a seat as far from the door as you can get, because the door is opened often. If not for the second visit, I would have rated this 4 stars.More

Go here at least once or twice a week. Menu has many choices. Food is well prepared and good. Staff is attentive and very friendly. Good quick meals when you are in a hurry or just are wanting to sit and relax.

If you like visiting those places that are locally owned then this is one for you. The meal was great, the atmosphere was quaint, and the service was personable.

I've been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. The restaurant is quite small but gives it a quaint feel. The same servers have been working there for years and make you feel like family. My personal favorites are the cheeseburger...and the tomato dill soup with a grilled cheese. The homemade desert is always fabulous, so save some room!More

Eat here often. Good menu selection and food. Service is very good and servers are friendly. They have several home made dessert options. Consistency and good food is what I look for in a place to eat and they have it all here.
