Reviewed: The Bean, a Corporate-Looking Independent Coffee Shop Mini-Chain

The Bean | East Village | Project Latte The Bean | East Village | 1st Ave & E 9th St

Although their name, The Bean, makes you think they’re all about the coffee, in fact, this New York City mini-chain is anything but. That’s not to say we don’t like the place – when we want a seat somewhere that has guaranteed fast wifi and lots of plugs, we often head to one of their East Village branches. We prefer the 2nd Ave location, which has more comfortable seating, lower music volume, and more seating choices, but sometimes it’s too crowded and we’ll head over to the 1st Ave branch.
