Interesting and healthy menu with good prices. Everyone in my family really enjoyed their food and that is an accomplishment. Had our dog with us and enjoyed being able to sit outside in the shade with him.

Great turkey/cranberry sandwiches on awesome bread, and really good salads with plenty of toppings. Yummy cookies too! We stopped in for a quick lunch prior to our whale watching tour and really enjoyed it.

We stopped in for a light breakfast and the latte (iced) I ordered was so good we went back for a light late lunch! That time we had the blended iced lattes and they were amazing! Breakfast egg wraps were also very good and the chicken salad half plates for late lunch were perfect.

The oatmeal with berries and nuts is hearty and delicious! And the coffee is good, too! The Bean is just a short walk from the ferry landing. Go park your car in line, then come up here for a morning brew.

You get the impression this place doesn't have to try too hard - decor was a bit tired and lacking in atmosphere. We had salads and panini - all fine but not outstanding - overall needs some tlc! Would not rush here again.

I ordered a Lavender Italian Soda... I was a bit leary of it at first, but it ended up turning out really super good. One of the only drawbacks was that you could not see the water from this establishment. However, it is just a staircase away from the Ferry terminal, so it's a great place to sit and wait... More

We were excited to find this place but after taking one bite of the food we realized that it was made a long time ago. The food was stale. We got a cinnamon roll, a muffin and coffee cake. A little advise to the Bean Cafe, people can taste the difference between fresh and stale food.
