The bean is a fun little place, with great java and late hours. The clientele is usually an artistic group of kids, some of whom whether solo or in a group, will write or sketch at their table. The staff is friendly and never dawdle- very important when I need my caffeine fix.

gotta love the Bean Cafe...one of the few places where you can get a true French Press delivered to your table with one of their fine selections of baked goods. The coffee here is superb.

The Bean Cafe is the perfect addition to the South Street vibe in Philadelphia. It's a hot spot for bulletin postings for local talent and events. Also very important, the coffee is on point, and is complemented well by their bakery goods. Great place to meet a friend for a cup of joe.

great coffee, great people, great art. I love the Thia iced coffee and I am really happy that they open early so I can stop in on my way to work.

"The Bean" is a small fringy South St. cafe that is well-loved by both residents and visitors alike. It's attraction for some is reminiscent of the satisfaction felt when your favorite pair of pegged jeans came back in style and you were still able to wear them well: articulate 'comfiness.' The Bean sees many types of people passing through from the waifing art-school hipster, to the tattoo artist who works next store, to the project-laden business man, to the suburban soccer mom who's been shopping for shoes a few stores down; they want their coffee, homemade baked goods, a decent mint mocha latte to warm up in the winter, or a tasty mango smoothie to keep cool during the summer. Upon entering, a large book shelf off to the right holds some interesting flyers and zines of a mostly musical persuasion; the walls usually hold the work of some local artist and the owner of the cafe keeps things fresh by rotating art on a monthly basis. The Bean definitely has had their fingers on the (caffeinated) pulse of the city for a while, and with all that coffee to keep things going, there's no sign of them letting up anytime soon.
