The Sentient Bean

Savannah, Georgia


rating star

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.

The food is NOT good. The tofu in our tofu scramblers was watery, mushy and very pale. Also there are more things to put in a scrambler then frozen spinach (was soggy and cool) and greasy onions. Like I said in other Savannah posts, the city doesn't do vegan food well... the food is what I imagine vegan food would have been like in the 60's. The coffee was alright, the soy lattes were alright (tasted burned) but the smoothies were awesome! I had the peanut butter and banana one and it rocked!

Disappointing! We arrived around 9:15 on a Saturday night and were pleased to find a cool band, High Cotton, playing. Unfortunately, they had already put all the vegan desserts away! They offered to go get them but couldn't remember what all they had. I had a chocolate, peanut butter, rice krispie thing that was pretty good. My sister picked up a take out menu as we were leaving. We thought we'd try them again in the morning (menu said they were open every day at 7:30 AM). We arrived at 8:30 and they were closed! So much potential, Sentient Bean -- what happened??

Nice coffee house that seems to have all sorts of events on.

I dropped in and had a smoothie, which was very good.

Unfortunately, although they are open until 10, the kitchen often closes earlier, and I never got to try the food even after two 9pm attempts.
