The homemade sausage patties are pretty much the best thing ever. Home fries just the way mama made them. The only thing I didn’t like is the fact the water tastes horrible and can tell they use it for the coffee. Needs filtered for sure!

We have one problem with Vanilla Bean, It`s hard to drive by without stopping in! Between there specialty breakfasts or to die for pastries, we cant stay away. Always great service, pleasant atmosphere and great coffee, wine and food.

This place was very good. Nice to seat outside and go into the gift shop. It did take awhile to get our food and they didn’t have everything on the menu. Would recommend the omelette and wild rice burger.
