Perfect little hole in the wall. Great staff and service. The quiches are homemade and delicious! We go there at least twice a month.

Great coffee, good food and friendly service makes this place the best breakfast in town. We will be going back whenever we get back to Tallahassee .

A fun restaurant, all the ingredients were fresh. The black bean burger was very flavorful and the chibatta roll it was served was perfect. Other people at the table ordered the breakfast skillets and they looked and tasted incredible. The eggs were farm fresh and beautiful. Smoothies were also good. Very attentive wait staff .

Service was great, food was outstanding. dog friendly but a small area outside. We were fortunate to have space on the patio. Bada Bean was a well kept secret for a while, but the secret is out so expect crowds on Sunday morning.

The breakfast was amazing and the self serve coffee even better. I liked it so much that we are going again tomorrow morning. You have to try the pancakes.

Anyway this place is a full menu and every time I've been here the food is been absolutely wonderful the quality of food is great the service is great... More

OK, I am probably making it even more difficult to eat at one of our favorite family-owned breakfast/brunch and lunch restaurants in town, but I must share anyway. This place has excellent coffee and a varied and tasty menu, including the normal breakfast and lunch fare, as well as skillet type concoctions. The biggest drawback is that it's tight quarters...

A hidden gem. A hole in the wall. Call it what you may, but definitely GO! Bada Bean is one of my very favorite places to start my Sunday morning. Breakfast here is to die for. I dare you to resist the Cinnamon Roll Pancake or Egg White Omelet. Grab a cup of Joe while you're at it. What's missing?... More

Decided to stop here (after reading reviews) on way through Tallahassee. It's a little off I-10, but well worth the drive. Awesome food and service. Started with an extremely delicious cinnamon roll...they were serving both lunch and breakfast, so everyone in the family could get what they liked. One child had the cinnamon roll pancake...it was to die for!! Wish... More
