Food is great, menu is original and unique sandwiches. Prices are good. The staff is not very pleasant and could benefit from customer service skills. I have gone here for years and the staff is seldom pleasant. The ones that were great have all left.

This quaint little restaurant is a good choice for soups, sandwiches, and breads. Order at the counter and try to get a window seat overlooking the local falls. Poipuar with the locals and worth recommending.

When you're footsore after a day of sightseeing and shopping in Exeter, The Green Bean is the place to go. Service is cafeteria-style, with a changing menu of homemade soups and sandwiches daily.

The food here is basic and terrific - wonderful soups and sandwiches. It's usually packed and can be a little too warm inside. Weather permitting, grab one of the tables outside.

Every time I visit Exeter I make sure I grab a sandwich at the Green Bean! Such a great place to eat! The sandwiches are unique and so is the soup! I had the turkey with cranberry sauce last time I visited. It was very yummy!
