Description: Located in baseement of the historic Miller Armstrong Center. Built at the turn of the 20th century this converted grocery warehouse now is the home of Jonnie Beans, Club 57, ELM Homes, the Miller Armstrong Conference Center, and the Miller B & B. The warehouse was purchased in 1999 by Gene and Bonnie Miller, weeks before the historic building was scheduled for demolition. After years of painstaking remodeling Jonnie Beans opened in 2004.Jonnie Beans is an internet coffee house serving breakfast and lunch daily (Monday - Saturday). Jonnie Beans serves fair trade coffee, omelettes, paninis, soups, sandwiches, and more. Excellent food in an excellent setting.

This place was an unexpected gem in a small town. The resturant was located in the bottom of a building that also housed a nigh time resturant. Our breakfast was hearty and deliciious and the server went out of her way to accomodate us. She even gave us a coffee cup to take home as a momento. It is rare I find such fabulous places, especially in a smaller town, but if you are traveling thru the area you must stop here!

You can't go wrong with a visit to this historic location. Excellent meals and friendly surroundings. This old warehouse basement is deceivingly comfortable and the home made meals and soups are always done very well.

The chicken salad sandwich is so yummy! Also their home made soups are wonderful. The raspberry iced tea is great. One of my favorite places to eat.
