Do skip the Starbucks down the block and visit this neat place for coffee or lunch. My wife and I ordered the panini sandwiches and they were delicious. The coffees were good, and the vibe even better. Clearly a local hang out, and I hope they stay around. Free wifi always helps.

Quintesential home-town coffee hangout. ALL the locals love the place. They have some tasty breakfast food offerings, and the coffee is good. Great place for people AND their dogs.

A real coffee house - eclectic, old couches board games, good food - a real neighborhood place with music on the weekends. 20 odd years young. Bean town bakes it's own cookies and morning pastries, sells Fosselman's ice cream, smoothies, interesting sandwiches and salads. The coffee is pretty good too. Come to read the morning paper or finish your second act. Stay all day. Friendly and Authentic

I am a starbucks guy coffee wise, but I love going into beantown to see my friends and take in the warm atmosphere. The owner Matt is great and his staff nice. They follow through with their promise. Their salads and sandwiches aren't bad either. Sierra Madre'ans depend on this place for a meeting place almost every morning. Go. You'll be happy you did.
