This is pretty much self serve, You order at the counter and your meal is delivered to the table. Good service and good food. I would highly recommend it,

We visited Beans after the Ark Encounter on a Thursday around 8:30pm. The menu was ample for a family of 4 to all find something yummy. The bakery has great cookies and doughnuts. Super friendly staff. Soup, sandwiches, bakery, etc... I'd highly recommend this restaurant!
