Description: Since the Bean (as it’s known in the neighborhood) opened its doors in 2001, we’ve tried to make decisions that are good for our customers, our community, and our environment. Strangely enough, we also believe that this way of doing business is good for the bottom line. Our fair-trade coffee is organic, as is our produce and most of our staple ingredients. We are committed to using locally grown ingredients as much as possible, don’t fry anything, and make most of our food from scratch. We are vegetarian, and very vegan and gluten-free friendly! In 2008 we got rid of disposable plastic ware and we continue to recycle and compost. We host almost nightly events organized by members of the community and we strive to be welcoming to even the strangest among us. Check out our website for upcoming events.

The Bean is a neat shop with lots of unique food choices. Occasionally watch a movie of here some very good music. Its setting on Forsyth Park is very relaxing on a nice Savannah day.

“Great Food + Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

This place is awesome. Went here multiple times on a short trip to Savannah. They had great pastries, soups, and really cool purple sweet potato pancakes. I was thrilled with all the vegan options (vegan breakfast burrito, vegan soups, vegan butter, vegan pancakes, vegan cookies, etc!).

Staff was very friendly, the prices were very reasonable, and I also loved all the bicycle parking.

“good fresh organic food, and great coffees!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

the decor is a bit "funky" but fun, lots of college students eat there as well. The food is delicious and healthy and the coffee is great as well. For a quick healthy meal this is the place to go.

“Nice relaxing atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

Coffeehouse authentic. Roomy, relaxing, low maintenance. The coffee (I'm referring to the basic cup) is very good. See a movie, see some street life and lower your blood pressure.

“Cash only”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

Food was pretty good. I wouldn't recommend the ciabatta bread...it's so hard you can't enjoy the sandwich. My wife got the egg sandwich on a croissant and our was great. And, it's cash only. Not really a big deal but good to know before you get there. They have an ATM in the cafe though.
