Bean and Leaf opened its doors as a bright, relaxing and welcoming place to enjoy exquisite coffees and teas. It has evolved into a roost in this beautiful old downtown for people who enjoy those beverages, along with conversation, light-and-healthy food, and excellent, free music events. Comfortable seating, including some couches, is just right to enjoy live music almost nightly, including a jazz combo on Mondays and finger-picking acoustic guitar on Fridays. No cover to enjoy the music! Menu includes juices, salads and soups, bean dishes, toasted sandwiches, pitazzas, chips and dips. It is just what a classic coffee house should be. Open daily until 10 p.m.; Sundays until 8 p.m. New London's Historic Waterfront District is a hub of art, music, and design venues, unusual boutiques, and 30 eateries in a 26-block National Register Historic District.
We storied Bean & Leaf with a simple vision: Provide quality tresh-roasted coffee beans, the finest teas, properly prepared, delicious beverages, a focus on being good global citizens through fair, responsible coffee and tea buying practices, and the use of environmentally sound packaging. Our take out cups are biodegradable as are our straws, stir sticks, lids, and sleeves. We recycle nearly everything and compost our coffee grounds.
