The Coffee Bean is a coffee shop hidden away in central Richmond. The building was once a printing works owned by John Bell.
The Coffee Bean serves good coffee and has a relaxing, friendly vibe. The chairs aren’t especially comfy, but there are interesting things to look at whilst your bum suffers in silence. It it’s not busy with lunchtime crowds it makes for a good place in which to hide away, particularly upstairs.
As you might expect, the usual snack lunches are available, plus plenty of excellent homemade cakes and pastries.
