The “not so sweet bean” Cafe! I used to go into this cute spot with my toddler after her play dates and everyone was always so nice. So I had no hesitation in choosing this restaurant when my girlfriends wanted to have a ladies brunch for my birthday. None of them had been there before and I kept raving about how cute it was and how great the food was. My mom also passed away a few weeks ago so I was feeling down, but they all convinced me to come out and spend time together. When I arrived , one of my friends was already waiting with her baby inside, and she looked frazzled. I didn’t realize that the hostess had been rude to her about saving the table for the rest of us who are only running about five or 10 minutes behind because the parking lot is so crowded and it takes time to find a spot. When my other friend arrived with her baby, The hostess didn’t even say hi-she just looked at her annoyed and asked her to take her stroller back to the car! We sat down and ordered some drinks, and then one of the babies started crying a little bit. A waitress literally came over and said “the manager is not gonna tolerate that.” Of course we had to get up and leave. We weren’t gonna let my one friend leave because her baby was crying so we had to go next door to first watch. I can’t even describe the level of unprofessionalism that everyone who worked there today had with us! getting treated like you’re a criminal because you have a sweet baby with you. And anyone who has agrees with this type of treatment is gross. I have to tell you! I was so embarrassed because that place was my idea and I had never had a bad experience there before. I hate to have to leave these type of reviews because I understand that this is someone’s livelihood, but this is unacceptable and it’s discriminatory! We never really have any opportunity to go out and eat anything and when we do this is how we get treated. I’m honestly so disgusted. I have the sweetest and kindest group of friends too and I felt terrible that they were treated like losers from the moment they walked through the door. I also had my baby with me by the way and she’s only nine months old but I think I deserve to have a nice brunch too sometimes. I didn’t realize that having a baby with you means you get treated like a criminal. literally, like it’s a crime to have a baby with you! That’s how it felt I didn’t realize all this time that there was a sign on the door basically telling people that they’re not kid friendly, but they need to put that on posterboard and make it a lot bigger because it’s easy to miss! I would have never suggested that place if I would’ve seen anything like that. Long story short… Do not go to this restaurant if you have small children with you!

Awwwww, still here and thriving! We love, love this little place in a strip along San Carlos in Ft. Myers. Whenever we venture down we always come for a delicious breakfast which never disappoints! The place is cozy (but I do miss your funny sign behind the counter, David🤣), and the food wonderful. The coffee is hot and fresh with a good variety of choices. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. All in all, so glad you are still here!

First of all, our waiter Dylan was fantastic. Attentive, but not overwhelming and so friendly. We had the Maryland crab omelette and the crepes and both were so delicious. We will be back!

Eclectic decor and menu. Excellent selection of coffees and pastries. The breakfast menu has a great variety of well-prepared choices. Their homemade corned beef hash is a rock star!

Sweet bean use to be our favorite family place for breakfast! We went here for my Husband birthday breakfast with our son who’s 2. Immediately saw the sign basically saying kids aren’t welcome. So automatically felt super worried because our son is 2 & if you’re a parent you know you never know what you’re going to get venturing out with your kids. So needless to say our breakfast was super quick. We definitely will be telling all our friends about this. Shame on you! Bye bye sweet bean ✌🏼

The owner is an awful individual. We brought our 17 month old daughter with us for lunch. We put our name on the list for a table and informed the restaurant host we had a 17 month old. They told us they didn’t have a high chair available (which we thought was strange but not a big deal) but took our name and never said children were not allowed. We were seated at a table, drink order and food order taken by the server who again mentioned nothing of children not being allowed. Our 17 month old made a noise to signal she wanted water and was then quiet. Shortly after, a small, white haired older man (that we then found out was the owner) came to our table and asked if we needed him to get us something for our daughter to keep her quiet. His smug, passive aggressive tone caught us by surprise so we asked (now 25 minutes into our lunch) if we were allowed to have kids. He then, in another passive aggressive tone, told us he will not have anyone disrupting his dining. We decided to leave based on how uncomfortable we felt. Other patrons in the restaurant were shocked at how virtually a noiseless child caused such an uncomfortable situation and expressed this to us as we were leaving. Let me also be very clear, if the establishment decides to not allow children to their coffee shop, that is their choice and I do not have a problem with it. The issue is due to no one stating that having children in the restaurant was an issue. Tell us before we are seated and save everyone the trouble.

Overall the food was very good and everything was fresh. Service was good. We especially liked the chicken salad, prime rib sandwich and the variety of coffees available. My reasons for a 4 rating instead of 5: -Cafe is too dark for a breakfast/lunch restaurant. It was very hard to read menu. -Although we purchased several beverages, when we asked for a glass of water with our meal we were told the only option for water is to purchase bottled water. -They ran out of the soup special around 12:15

We stopped in for a Saturday morning breakfast and were swiftly greeted by the friendly staff. The ambiance is very warm, homely and inviting. Cafe owner, David, and ALL of his staff were exceptionally attentive. The food was so clean and fresh with a great presentation. This is a must try for anyone nearby or passing through. Don’t miss out!!

Incredible service at this locally owned and operated business. Very friendly helpful staff who were eager to recommend their favorite dishes. Some of the best cornbread and corned beef hash I’ve had. Highly recommended

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!!
