Bada Bean is a great local restaurant serving excellent (and bottomless) coffee. They have a big menu and some very tasty specials. I had the crab eggs benedict (a special) and it was AWESOME! A great spot to grab a bite in East Tallahassee.

Terribly slow service. Food is fair. Wait staff need a shower and some basic grooming. Parking is an issue. Would not return.

This was a great local place that I tried with my wife. The food is great with big portions and the server was very laid back and fun. I recommend any of the breakfast skillets.

I eat here often...and so does most of Tallahassee I think. It's small but accommodating and features some of the best homemade breakfast and lunch fare you can find. It is family owned and operated. If you go on the weekend, you better go early...More
