Cinnamon roll pancakes!!!!!
They are the best pancakes I have ever had. Service was great and did not have to wait long even on a Sunday morning.

“Best Breakfast in Tallahassee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

After almost two years of living in Tallahassee, I finally decided to try this place after being recommended to me and I'm sad I wait this long! I am a big fan of breakfast and always love local, hole in the wall places. Bada Bean is very, very tiny with about 20 tables (if that). There is a mix of low top/high top tables as well as some outdoor seating. Coffee is self serve (they bring you mugs, you get it yourself) and they always have a wide variety of roasts. I've ordered a few different dishes (omelettes, skillets) but my favorite is The Bird Shot. It's scrambled eggs served over home fries (fried cubed potatoes) with bacon and hollandaise on top. It is a simple meal that is indescribably delicious. They also serve lunch foods, but have yet to try them. I have also only visited on the weekends, so I cannot speak as to a weekday experience. Also, if going on the weekend get there EARLY. We went at 8a on Sunday (they open at 7:30) and it was already busy. By the time we left, there was a line of people waiting for tables. I am a sucker for a good breakfast and this place certainly delivers. Also, it's not on the student side of town so you can usually get away without having a bunch of hungover college kids sweating off the alcohol from the night before.

This restaurant is really good. The owner actually works there and does a lot of the cooking and baking. The loaded grits - yummy!! Carrot cake from scratch - yes please! Great omelets and sandwiches , yummy daily specials and good portions. Give it a try!

“Best of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Great food and great people! Lots of variety even if you do get stuck on a favorite now and then. Try the bagel melt with bacon, cream cheese, provolone, and a tomato on an asiago
