Food and coffee are great and lovely atmosphere but I won’t be back because you can’t get a glass of tap water which is bad for our environment and our wallets. This is a pet peeve of mine.

Was there with a girlfriend to have coffee. Owner, David, came up to us and asked to leave since we were only having coffee. I can understand that they were busy and needed the table for people who were going to eat. We then moved...over to the sitting area which consists of a couch and 3 high back chairs. We continued our visit and were still drinking coffee. David then came over to that area and asked us to leave again that we couldn't stay if we were only having coffee. I have never been so offended in my life. Will never go back no matter how good the food is there and I have been there a few other times to eat but this time we just wanted to have coffee and enjoy the atmosphere. Big mistake!!More

This is a café and they sell coffee so not a "Starbucks". But their toffee coffee is VERY yummy so you won't even notice. And definitely smell all the coffee beans!!

Consistently wonderful food. My husband and I have been eating here for a few years now and have never been disappointed. You can’t always say that about a restaurant but I can say it about Sweet Bean. The owner is the main reason I believe...that they are so successful. And as for the mask police…..Florida is a free state. Wear them or not it’s your choice.More

This is a wonderful little spot tucked into a strip mall in Fort Myers. The owner and his staff are charming,sweet, attentive. No matter what you order it's going to be made fresh daily & super tasty. You can't go wrong. They offer a rotating...coffee bar with varying flavored coffees. Come check it out. Tell David we sent you.More

My wife and I went for breakfast for the 1st time together at this wonderful place. Speriod she has been here previously with friends and has kept bragging about how good it is. It was time for me to find out for myself. When you...order coffee they have they have a variety of different coffees available that you can go up and pour yourself. They also have every kind of Creamer or milk you can think of period I had the organic Brazilian and it was excellent. My wife had the crustless Kish and it was so tasty!he! I had a phenomenal veggie and bacon omelet. It was moist and tasty. Many places that I go to allow their omelets to get dry and overcook them. That was not the case here. The staff was extremely sweet and accommodating. They were so good that I asked for the owner.. The owner's name is Dave and he came over to the table. I told him what a wonderful experience we were having and that we would be back. He was very gracious and nice. I recommend if you're looking for something with great ambience, atmosphere, friendly service, and great food then you need to stop by and visit this place.More

We hadn't planned to go there, but we stopped when we passed by and tried it out, and we're glad we did. Small negative, it was a little dark for us, but it had a really nice pub-like atmosphere. The menu was really appealing- lots...of breakfast items- which we were looking for- but also a nice lot of lunch items, as well. We were both drawn to the corn beef hash, and it was really delicious! The hashbrowns and bread were also outstanding. I had ordered the jalapeno corn muffin, which I really enjoyed, but Dave, the owner came by and brought a couple pieces of their really excellent cinnamon bread. He says that they make great French toast, and we want to go back and try that soon. I was amazed that they had 6 kinds of coffee made up in self-serve hot pitchers, and also a large variety of beans that they could brew into fresh coffee. That was a real plus! Robert was a great server- so attentive and helpfut. We had totally enjoyable first experience there and look forward to returning.More

My wife and I live in Ocala. We frequently visit Fort Myers to see my mother-in-law. During each visit we make sure we eat at The Sweet Bean Coffee Cafe. Breakfast and lunches are always excellent. Now they are open for dinner. Tonight's meals were...prepared by an experienced chef with attention to every detail of presentation and exquisitely pleasing to our palates. The chef came to our table to explain his cooking style and presentation of our dishes. The wine selection and desserts were subperb. Stop in and meet the owner, Dave. He will personally ensure you have delicious meals in a well appointed environment.More

No masks, no further visits. The food and service were wonderful as always but just cannot visit again at this time with no respect for my health or safety. This is the first experience like this in the area. Unacceptable.
