This is the place to go for breakfast in Northampton. Tasty food whether you are a vegetarian, vegan, or carnivore. Friendly, accommodating staff, and homey atmosphere.

What can I say? Once in awhile I come across a coffee shop/restaurant that I visit more than once (on the same trip) rather than explore other options. From the warmed coffee cups hanging on the cup tree (where patrons serve themselves fresh coffee), the friendly and quick service, and vegetarian friendly menu, and overall ambience, this is a terrific...

it was decent but nothing too extravagant. They did have some vegan options which was nice and a place to sit outside.

Let me start by saying that I have always had amazing breakfasts here before, and that whenever I'm in town, THIS is where I eat breakfast. (Sylvester's is a distant second.) It's fun, in a great location, and it always has a friendly vibe. But... the other day just wasn't up to par. It was okay, not great. I don't... More

Love this little place! If you're a morning person, get there right when they open to get your spot. Weekends are packed with people and there is routinely a 30+ minute wait but it's worth it if you're not too hungry. Great vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. My favorites are the omelettes with loaded home fries (sauteed veggies with... More

Have been here about 25 times for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Green Bean is generally very good, although there was a 3 month period where I had some of the driest and coldest eggs and homefries ever, but that seems to have been resolved, the last two times were great. For breakfast/brunch try Zorba the Green or the Green Eggs.... More

Lovely little cafe in Western Mass. Green Bean was at least quiet before 8am on Sunday. But it certainly doesn't stay quiet! I got there early before a work breakfast to check on their ability to accommodate CELIAC SAFE gluten-free -- in other words, truly gluten-free -- diners. Although they can give no guarantees, legally, and their kitchen is small,... More

I brought my daugher, her boyfriend, and a college friend here for breakfast. We usually go to another Northampton restaurant but I wanted to try something new. We went to Green Bean and put our names on the list. We only had to wait about 20 minutes but we expected this. Great coffee and orange juice. Great pastries and omelettes.

Great vegetarian and vegan restaurant/cafe. Really informal. Tables a little squashed in. Larger groups (over 6) might find it a little cramped. Wonderful menu. Combination of kale with eggs and garlic and Vermont cheddar (green eggs and ...) was delicious. Miso soup with poached eggs- really simple and good. Every meal served to our group was tasty. Recommend- but note... More

waitress was very nice and explained choices and unfamiliar ingredients well. We sat, unfortunately, near the check out area and the CLANG BANG constant noise of the dishes being put away and into the wash area was so distracting I couldn't hear my friends talk. Food was ok, a bit bland. Sauteed vegetables were overcooked and more like leftover morsles... More
