“Not Sweet Help”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

You would think a place called Sweets and Beans might have happy help. Not so the night we were there. My daughter and I walked in on a cold night and ordered coffee and crepes. The counter help was positively surly and seemed distressed that we were there (I suspect he would have like to lock the door and flipped the Open sign an hour early). The coffee was fine as were the crepes --nothing special but there is not a lot of competition in this small town. Too bad -- it could have been a fun experience, but we could wait to get out of there.

“get your sugar on...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This place is a sugar addict's dream. The ice cream is excellent and if they don't have your favorite candy... it probably isn't made.

“cardboard crepe”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

The crepe was served in a cardboard wedge. It was underdone and tasted more like cardboard itself than anything else. It was the worst crepe I have ever had.

All the butter melted off the crepe and formed a well in the bottom of the wedge or cone or whatever it was. No napkin offered.

What looked like a fun place and yummy place turned out to be a great disappointment.
