On the southern edge of Forsyth Park, this hangout was one of Savannah's best-kept secrets until it was written up by the New York Times. It is a favorite gathering spot for locals of all stripes, who are drawn by its welcoming atmosphere and organic fare. The Bean offers a small but delectable menu of breakfast and lunch options, along with a variety of fair-trade coffees, teas, and smoothies. In the evening, customers can enjoy poetry readings, film screenings, and live music over a beer or glass of wine at happy-hour prices. The place is cash only, but there's an ATM on-site.
