Great service and a fun menu that reaches beyond your average breakfast meal. Specialty pancakes, delicious looking skillet meals and creative omelets ( or build your own!). The wait was long but we were there on a Saturday morning. Self serve Lucky Goat coffee - a Tallahassee favorite.

The Bada Bean has fantastic breakfasts at fantastic prices. It is a small restaurant, so there may be a wait, but it is definitely worth it. The portion sizes are very fair, especially for the price. The pastries are to die for. Unfortunately, they stopped making their cheese danish. But the cinnamon rolls are also quite good.

Great breakfast and worth the wait. We waited for 10 minutes with great coffee offered right away! Bria was a treat as our waitress. The bacon is thick and cooked perfectly. I can't explain the great local coffee..Lucky Goat. Snowflake and Tallahassee blends..love the self serve bar for the coffee. Great find and worth the drive also. I got vegetable... More

When I come into town to visit my daughter we always stop by Bada Bean for breakfast. Their coffee is fantastic and their food is always fresh with some very unique dishes. I will however not recommend the oatmeal. When I ordered it I believe it was instant oatmeal from a pouch. Really easy to make oatmeal in a crockpot... More

I have spent the last 2 days with a friend that had appointments at the hospital, and each morning we have had breakfast. The first morning I ordered the Californian Omelette (Grilled onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushroom, spinach, and avocado with feta cheese) with home fries. OMG what a feast. The plain medium latte was also fabulous. My friend had to... More

Bada Bean is a great local restaurant serving excellent (and bottomless) coffee. They have a big menu and some very tasty specials. I had the crab eggs benedict (a special) and it was AWESOME! A great spot to grab a bite in East Tallahassee.

Terribly slow service. Food is fair. Wait staff need a shower and some basic grooming. Parking is an issue. Would not return.

This was a great local place that I tried with my wife. The food is great with big portions and the server was very laid back and fun. I recommend any of the breakfast skillets.

As a chef, this was the first time I visited this place and I was very impressed with this local place. I highly recommended this place for anyone looking for a great breakfast in Tallahassee. The service was very good. The Farmers Skillet was perfect and the homemade double chocolate chip muffin toasted with butter was excellent. If you are... More
