I frequent the "Bean" for breakfast. Their specials are inspired! Terrific muffins and if you are lucky, you can get day old muffins and bagels cheap!

The Big Bean is an excellent place for breakfast and lunch. All items have a little extra pizzazz. The food is fresh and well-made. Unfortunately, this is a small place and there is often a wait. Still, I would say this is the best place...More
