This local spot has the best, most creative breakfast around. It does get busy, but if you are willing to wait, you won't be disappointed. Some of the staff occasionally seem frazzled, but in their defense, it gets slammed on the weekends! Their dishes are creative and their muffins are the best around!

Some how it is always quick and fresh even though it is always busy. If you want friendly service and wonderful breakfast this is your place. If you want upscale find another option. This local favorite is the type of place you can always count on. The burrito's are a wonderful choice and a grilled muffin will not disappoint.

There is no restaurant in a 20 mile radius that comes close to the experience at the Big Bean! The fresh food and the menu are incomparable to any place I've ever eaten. The staff and service are phenomenal. They care about their guests, the delivery, the presentation and the service. You will not find a restaurant better than this... More

Great spot for local foods and creative menu. Granola types. Can get very crowded and service can be poor at times.

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!
