Brewing coffee and community

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, Caterer

Warm colors, high ceilings, and delicious smells greet each customer at The Sentient Bean. The Bean attracts a diverse crowd, giving the neighborhood a place to relax and socialize while sipping a cappuccino or having lunch. Seating is available inside and in our unique funky outdoor courtyard.

The Sentient Bean coffee house features a 21 by 42 foot performance space with seating for up to 100 people. The Bean presents an eclectic array of events from ultra indie movies & cult films, to nationally acclaimed acoustic bands & solo acts, to poetry and literary readings, to educational and community forums. During shows, the coffee house offers light meals, fresh baked goods and desert, as well as coffee, tea, and smoothies.

Our name, The Sentient Bean, is more than just a play on words; it is an expression of our ethic. We serve all organic and fair trade coffee, and use local and organic ingredients in our baked goods and light lunches. Fair trade certification guarantees that low-income farmers and artisans receive a fair price for their products so they may feed, educate, and care for their families.

Good local food. Great coffee. Nice art and coffee house atmosphere. Good soup and good sandwich choice. Next to a great healthfood shop with raw food.

Wonderful place - community focused. Only true vegetarian restaurant in Savannah as far as I know.

Lots of good eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Soy beverages available plus some fun smoothies.

Quality is good and staff is helpful. A staple for veggies in Savannah and in a great location just south of Forsyth Park.

Forsyth Park


We are located on one of the South's most beautiful and historic parks, Forsyth Park. We are on the south end of the park across from the tennis courts, between a consignment boutique and a great natural food store.

The Bean is conveniently located at 13 E. Park Avenue, between Drayton and Whitaker.
