This is a wonderful place that is at the end of the grass mall south of the city fountain. There is a parking lot across the street. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. We ordered coffee to walk around...More

Wanted a light dinner and this sufficed. Restaurant reminds me of a college town coffee shop but a little rough. Shop needed a good sweeping but food was delicious!

Stopped in based on a recommendation from a local. Mocha that my boyfriend got was “REALLY good”. Our “pump up the protein” salads were just what I wanted for lunch! Everything appears to be locally sourced. Menu will definitely please those looking for a healthy...More

Stopped in for coffee and boy.... did we go to the right place. These people know their coffee! The girl taking orders helped up decide and sift through the menu according to our likes. Good coffee..... good service!

This is a good place to get a cup of coffee. The food is good but not great. My egg & cheese sandwich was pretty greasy but my breakfast taco was good.

Vibe is great, coffee was great, breakfast food was good. This is a bit "hippie" looking place (meaning, rough around edges for some people) with excellent vibe. It was obvious locals hang around and enjoy the eco-friendly food.

I love to visit different coffee shops when I travel. This place was my first stop, and it was fine. However there are much cooler (and in my opinion, better) coffee shops in Savannah

I stopped in here before hitting the road out of Savannah. The coffee was pretty good, but it's self-serve, and the breakfast offering was okay. The breakfast burrito kept me full for most of my drive north to Richmond.

Each time we are in Savannah, a trip to the Sentient Bean and Forsyth Park are a must. We usually stop in the Bean for some joe and sweets or some lunch while making the loop from downtown to the park.

Since the Bean (as it’s known in the neighborhood) opened its doors in 2001, we’ve tried to make decisions that are good for our customers, our community, and our environment. Strangely enough, we also believe that this way of doing business is good for the bottom line. Our fair-trade coffee is organic, as is our produce and most of our staple ingredients. We are committed to using locally grown ingredients as much as possible, don’t fry anything, and make most of our food from scratch. We are vegetarian, and very vegan and gluten-free friendly! In 2008 we got rid of disposable plastic ware and we continue to recycle and compost. We host almost nightly events organized by members of the community and we strive to be welcoming to even the strangest among us. Check out our website for upcoming events.
