These guys know how to make a latte! They are all about coffee. If your priority is coffee, you will be spoiled.

I met a friend over a cup of delicious hot chocolate and cappuccino. Very quaint place and comfortable to sit and chat. Can't wait to go back and try the delicious homemade sweets! Wise Bean...I love you!

Whenever I travel, I look for coffeeshops. This little shop was easy to find with Street parking. As soon as I walked in the smell of coffee and fresh baked goods grab you and pull you in. The staff was very friendly. I tried the Tanzanian Coffee, and also bought a bag of beans to take home. I also had... More

My husband and I were craving a properly made (NON-corporate) latte and stumbled across this little gem. I went for the mocha and he had the vanilla with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Both drinks were such a delicious treat, handcrafted before our eyes, with perfectly drawn espresso shots and expertly steamed milk, all done with a smile! Perfect funky, friendly... More

We stopped by on a Friday evening and had a great experience. The coffee was excellent. We spent some time talking to the owner getting a sense of Bethlehem (we where on a college tour weekend at Lehigh). She had some good insight on the town.

Delicious coffee and comfy couches. I really enjoyed the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. It was a welcome retreat from a busy day.

Worth it to walk a block or so if necessary (parking on street usually full during daytime business hours). Small, cozy, great coffee and a few wonderful baked goods, and staff who know how to pull a quick and perfect coffee & espresso. Cool music too. Just what a pure coffeehouse was meant to be, or so I believe.

I stopped by mid-afternoon on a Tuesday. There wasn't much going on, so I can't comment on the scene. But I can certainly attest to how good the coffee is. I had a medium roast. It was superb. They offer muffins and pastries and other treats, but I didn't try them. I was in a bit of a hurry because... More

Wise Bean is my favorite spot for a rich, delicious and consistently great cup of coffee or espresso. Plus the owners and their staff could not be more friendly and add the extra touch to what a great coffee house should be. Love them!

A wonderfully eclectic group of people frequent this gem of a neighborhood coffee shop. Flavorful coffee and fresh baked pastries in an intimate setting any time of the day, 6 days a week. What did we do without it!
