I love all of the vegan options at the Green Bean, and the staff are always knowledgeable and helpful about vegan menu items. The Green bean works to offer locally-grown food, and the food therefore tastes very fresh. I love the tempeh, with either the corn pancakes (that sometimes have a special option such as peaches cooked inside), the greens, beans & rice, and the VBLAT that was written about in another review. With everything I order, I always get a side of the almond gravy- even as a dipping sauce for the VBLAT!
There are always vegan baked goods for sale- though i've never tried them they come highly recommended. The coffee is good, and tea selections are great.
Expect a wait on weekends, but the meal is always worth it if you can afford the extra time. The Green bean is often the hip place to be for breakfast, brunch or lunch in the little town of Northampton, so it's also fun to be there as part of the town scene.
great food, healthy and tasty, friendly, knowledgeable staff
serves meat, sometimes long wait, occasional shift in quality
