All baked goods except for the bagels, croissants, and wraps are organic, and most are made in house. The black beans, coffee, tea, juice, soda, nut milks, most veggies, and some fruits are either certified organic or are organically grown. Most of the ingredients they use are locally sourced. The following items are not organic: cheese, tortillas, and nuts. The eggs and dairy are not organic but are pastured and without hormones or antibiotics. They also have a few organic choices of beer and wine.
The Sentient Bean boasts an extensive menu which includes breakfast that is served all day. They also offer soups, salads, paninis, wraps, tacos, bowls, smoothies, baked goods and of course, coffee.
What I Ordered
We sampled the breakfast burrito and house-made chocolate banana bread. The burrito was packed with savory scrambled eggs and chorizo making for a moist mouthful with a side of salsa for dunking. The banana bread was tasty, but unfortunately a bit dry.
The Sentient Bean is housed in an older building with high ceilings. You’ll find a large open space with a hip vibe and local art displayed throughout.
The Sentient Bean is a fun and hipster type of place serving an amazing assortment of clean food choices that also happen to be reasonably priced. Stop by and support this local small business that is doing good things. Brunch is served every Sunday from 9 am-1 pm, and happy hour is 5-9 pm daily.
