Stone baked perfection - Edit

Visited bean social on this fine spring morning with a friend and took some much needed shelter from the sun. I had “The Churchill” pizza and can honestly say it was one of the most delicious home made pizzas I’ve ever tried. Super fresh, piping hot and straight from their stone bake oven. Perfectly washed down with and I’ve cold soft drink, followed swiftly by a slab of their chocolate browny.
The setting is quaint and quiet. Kitchen is open plan so you can see them prepping your food fresh. Theres such a vast selection of hot and cold drinks paired with their food.
The only thing that could’ve made this visit better would be having room for more of their menu options. I suppose there’s always next time, and the time after that to fill my boots! Thanks Bean Social!

Pros: Filling, Priced very fair, So much selection

The social network - Edit

Very friendly cosy cafe with lots of vegan menu options. On our visit we ordered a vegan hot chocolate, an Americano, a sausage roll with salad and crisps and a slice of lemon drizzle cake and slice of the ultimate chocolate cake. The coffee was great and I really enjoyed both cakes, which were light, moist and flavoursome. The chocolate cake could maybe have been more chocolatey though but was tasty nevertheless. We got the sausage roll heated up but when served it was a little disappointing as it was hard in some places. The side salad was also soggy and wet, which was a real shame. My wife wasn't too keen on the hot chocolate either, as it was weak in flavour. All in all a mixed visit but we will return, as there were lots of mains options menu that looked fantastic.

Pros: Menu, Friendly staff, Atmosphere

Cons: Layout a bit cramped

Fantastic vegan breakfast - Edit

Great cafe on the route between station and town centre. Friendly folk run it and the ambience is relaxed with a mixture of tables and sofas. Menu is vegetarian with lots of vegan options. We had Posh Beans which was beans on toast with sliced vegan sausage. Nicely spiced and served piping hot. OH doesn't like beans so I asked for mushrooms to replace them. The owner discretely slipped out to market and bought mushrooms especially for her. Great service. Great food.

Pros: All veggie with lots of vegan choices, lovely artisan roasted coffee

Cons: small and tightly packed tables

great coffee - Edit

This is a fantastic addition to Durham. Nice central location close to the bus station. It's modern and fresh, super friendly and a great place to chill and people watch whilst drinking delicious coffee. This is now my coffee shop of choice when in Durham, it's so much better for coffee that the chain establishments in the city. The menu is fab for somewhere this size and prices are very reasonable. We were lucky enough to visit when they were making vegan cheese scones which were fabulous.

Pros: good vegan options, friendly , atmosphere

The café Durham needed! - Edit

Finally, Durham has the veggie/vegan spot it deserves. Impeccable coffee from a local company, better quality than anywhere else in Durham! Fab menu, varied and pretty much everything can be made vegan except the eggs! The staff are lovely, friendly people and the cafe is warm and bright - looks like they have all-vegan furniture too! They also have a secret garden to enjoy (blankets provided in winter!) which has been developed alongside the local visually impaired group to create a wonderful experience for customers of diverse sensory needs. If you’re looking for veggie/vegan food and/or decent coffee in Durham, look no further. Many congratulations to James, Kirsty and the team!

Pros: High quality coffee, Varied menu with many vegan options, Garden space

Cons: None!

Beans means Business - Edit

Love this place. Brand new veggie place in Durham with excellent vegan options including pizzas, wraps and cakes. We had a couple of coffees and one of their sensational home made must try vegan sausage rolls. Believe in the sausage roll. They could even be used as pacifiers for vegan babies!! Lovely interior and a 'secret' garden at the back. Next time I'm hitting the pizzas.

Pros: great location , staff , vegan options
