I've been ordering corn fritters- which I love- in each caff in Balmain. This is the best so far- light and fluffy with pomegranate mayo and salsa. Good coffee too. If it had aircon - it would be my go to caff around here. But its so hot, will have to endure a lesser caff just to cool down!

We decided on The Bean for a late brunch on Sunday. Service was very slow and the food when it arrived, nothing special.

I have to admit that I have always walked past The Bean when I'm out and about in Rozelle but just before Christmas I noted a change in decor & appearance. I also noticed that it is now open for dinner and is also licenced. Looks like The Bean has new owners I thought so we decided to give it... More

Located in the heart of thriving Rozelle village, where café competition is fierce! "The Bean" more than holds its own - with clean, pleasant décor and very attentive service. It’s licensed and open for dinner too, but we were doing Sunday brunch. Amazing bacon and egg role in a brioche bun (all the rage now, it would seem). My wife... More

Selected this from the net as we were going to be in the area. The meal was generous, fresh and so tasty. Friendly staff and the décor is worth a browse featuring some amazing posters. Would definitely go back if ever in the area again.

Good music, great decor & a really happy atmosphere!!! The owners and their staff obviously take a lot of pride in their workplace as the cafe is very clean and well kept. Large portions sizes & very reasonably priced, my food came in 10 minutes. Staff are friendly, chatty & eager to assist. Came for lunch & was not disapointed.... More

Service was friendly but so so, one of us came in and sat down while the other was parking the car. So my wife sat down and specifically said a table for two and ordered two coffees. One set of cutlery was brought to the table and when I arrived only one coffee was served, so we had to order... More

A regular for a cooked breakfast. New staff by the looks of things... A good menu - breakfast with a difference. Good coffee - can be slow on a busy Saturday morning.

Menu here isn't groundbreaking but this is an excellent "comfort food" cafe experience. Huge portions, tasty food, comfortable cafe. We found the service to be a tad too laid back but apart from that good experience.

We had a really good experience, service was quick and food was tasty. I had the bombay eggs which was slightly spicy and very tasty. The serving sizes are ample, if not quite large, the prices are very reasonable and all sides are the same price. Coffee was pleasant and the staff very friendly and willing to help.

Thank Susan P
