I was visiting New Bedford for the day so I stopped into The Green Bean for a latte. Cozy ambiance and great menu. Latte was terrific. They serve food as well as coffee drinks so I will definitely be back! Highly recommend.

Very modest inexpensive place for lunch close to the historic district. Good food, friendly staff. Nothing fancy but very pleasant and good wifi.
