Ranked #2 of 53 Restaurants in Exeter
Certificate of Excellence

Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 April 2014

The Green Bean is one of those places you just keep going back to because it is always the source of a great meal. Simplicity is the key, sandwiches, great soups (made on site), and other goodies that change on a daily basis. You order by going through a serving line and, if you are lucky, you can get a table the back looking out over the water coming over the dam! I always get their soups because they are so good. This time they had Bleu Cheese and Broccoli, Corn and Clam, plus a couple of others (I missed out on the White Bean and Sweet Sausage...All gone!).

We can tell why it's so crowded at lunchtime. Line moves quickly and a guide holds a table so you don't have to wait after picking up your order

We went on a Saturday for lunch. The place was really busy and we were wondering if we would have a place to sit when we entered but a nice employee told us that by the time we would order our food, he'd have a seat for us; and he did! He saved us the best seat in the house. He was very efficient at helping customers - giving recommendations, helping find seats, cleaning the tables. Before leaving, I thought I would take a Tiramisu to go and instead of making me wait in line, he ordered it for me and it was ready to go. The food was good. They have a great selection of sandwiches and soups.

It is hard to identify what I like best at the Bean. Soups are great and the breads are more than delicious. However I love the salads --Asian, Taco, etc. This place is not to be missed if you are in Exeter
