Just great coffee. Had to have a second. Nice sunny tables outside. Food standard for a cafe and very edible.

Service great coffee poor. It's been a while since I frequented this cafe where a long black came like a long black. Not burnt filter coffee. Even when another replacement is sent out, it looked & tasted exactly like the poor quality first serve..

We had a simple Egg Muffin breakfast and were absolute thrilled to find that The Bean had plunger coffee available - very unusual and exactly what we were wanting! Freshly ground beans and the coffee was perfect :) The staff were exceptionally helpful and we...really enjoyed our Winter Sunday breakfast - out of the wind and the sun warmed us beautifully - a great spot.More

Always a delight to get back to The Bean and (probably) the worlds best Flat White. We've been getting takeaway coffees during Level 3, and now the lockdown is over the cafe is fully open again. Good selection of cafe food - I particularly like...the cheese scones. We'd be in more often if it wasn't 11 500 miles away from home!More

About 2 hours before Jacinda put is in level 3 lockdown, the staff were looking harrassed and apologetic in that we had to sign in on a form. But they were coping, efficient, friendly and the date loaf was wonderful. And the milkshake was a...true thick shake. Support them when they can open again.More

little café with a simple selection of food. Its pleasant appearance from the approach and outside area attracted us in. By the waterfront but below the walls.

Have been there with a group sereral times. Mostly just have their good coffee. Cabinet food minimal but has very good sandwiches. No savouries. Wall stories interesting. Needs an update of the missmatch of tables and chairs. With the change of ownership during the year...we have found the service good and with a smile.More

Coffee ........... coffee coffee is really really good even if you ask for weird order Went with older friends who love the food, i think a little bland and hit and miss. Rather than trying to do too many dishes just stick with sammies and...a few cakes. after all its all about the coffee...More

Second time ai have been here first time dry stale scone but good coffee. This time yes good coffee. We ordered a frittata no salad very expensive at $12, it came out after a long wait, though it was not busy, the man too busy...talking to a friend. He was very rude said he didn’t care frittata comes with salad but you don’t have to eat it. It was dry egg with a few frozen veggies in it totally tasteless. We Will not be back even though the coffee is good. Gave it an extra star for that reason The whole experience was terrible.More
