When I moved to Decatur from Indianapolis, I missed Starbucks. Then I found the Java Bean, called "The Bean" by locals. You can have a fancy coffee and sit by the fireplace. My favorite lunch spot with co-workers. A delicious homemade chicken salad sandwich with a yummy sweet treat for dessert is my choice.

Best coffee in town, very helpful when trying to decide what to order. Huge selection of local artist items including pictures, glass and wood figures. Love when local shops support local people. Great atmosphere! Thankful they open at 6am!

This is a local coffee/hangout place in a small town. That said, the coffee was an 8 out of 10 and the oatmeal was the best I ever had (and I'm an experienced oatmeal taster.) breakfast sandwiches and pastries are also available.
