Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a small place with plenty of free parking. I wasn't expecting much except so so sandwiches but was pleasantly surprised. This place is like a deli and the food was delicious and out of the ordinary good. the only thing I didn't like...was that when you order at the counter, you are prompted to give a tip. a tip is for service rendered and I don't like to be asked for a tip before you even receive your food. we had the chicken cheddar cheese sandwich with garden salad and the reuben and bean soup. both meals were served with a variety of donut holes and the soup with crusty buttered bread. I thought the meal was a bit pricey. we paid over $30 for the 2 meals. the place is clean and the service is friendly.More

We arrive at 10. They were serving both breakfast and lunch items. They have a Texas size donut, latte, coffees, bagels, various donut varieties, sandwiches, soup, etc. We enjoyed our food and would return it again. Don’t take my word for it try it for...yourself.More

I highly recommend this place. The Reuben sandwich was the best I have ever had in my life. The pumpkin donut holes as a bonus side smart move you do sell more donuts that way I bought a dozen 6 chocolate and 6 pumpkin. My...mother had the ham and cheese fresh lettuce and was very flavorful, and we both had a bag of chips. The service was top-notch as well. Also, I support any business that stands up for their rights in America and beat beshears ass in a lawsuit. Also love the Muriel on the side of the building. I will be back for breakfast next time. Way to goMore

Did an online order for a light dinner. Everything was tasty and satisfying. We got the tacos, a breakfast sandwich, turkey and Reuben sandwiches, and a couple salads. Also got a loaf of their sourdough-very yummy. Looks like they have a good selection of breakfast...options, treats coffees/teas/smoothies too. Would most definitely recommend.More

Good sandwiches. Service was OK. The cup they gave me was cracked and leaked. Donuts are good. The cake donut was life chancing. The other donuts are also pretty good (glazed) but not as good.

My family and another family came here for lunch while we were in town to visit the Ark Encounter. The dining room was clean and family-friendly. The staff was friendly and helpful as we mulled over our lunch choices. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their sandwiches, smoothies,...donuts, and delicious coffee. We all enjoyed our lunch so much that we decided to come back for dinner and sample different items from the menu! Don't let the negative reviews deter you from visiting. The poor reviews of the restaurant are simply a tactic for those who have a left-leaning worldview. We all highly recommend the coffee, donuts, flourless chocolate cake, and the smoothies.More

We went to beans for a quick breakfast. My kids loved the doughnuts and my wife and I both enjoyed our breakfast sandwiches. The coffee was excellent and I am a bit of a coffee snob. The staff could not have been more pleasant. I...would highly recommend. Going back tomorrow for more!More

The food is ok but pricey. More importantly, it is not safe for anyone who is not white or openly Christian. Others are not welcome.

If you are looking for a morning pick me up look no further than Beans Cafe. From a wonderful selection of breakfast sandwiches, coffees, and donuts. It was just what we needed before heading to the Ark. They do offer lighter fare for lunch too,...but we stopped by in the morning. I highly recommend you check it out if you are in the area.More
