Coffeehouse, Cafe, Community
All over the world, coffeehouses fuel creativity, conversation, and community. At Fondren’s The Bean, Kristy Buchanan and her team of baristas are filling a gap with not only locally-roasted coffee but small plates, pastries, cocktails, craft beer, courtyard concerts, and more.
With the support of several business leaders in the neighborhood, Kristy took over the Sneaky Beans space in 2019 and the community they had already cultivated and amplified it, turning it into the ultimate neighborhood gathering spot that's inclusive of all ages and interests.
Storytime on Tuesdays at 9 am has become a standby for local moms, taking place in their courtyard when the weather's nice. Another regularly scheduled outdoor event is Songwriter Night, where local artists perform originals under the stars. Trivia Night is also huge for The Bean, with large crowds packing the indoor and outdoor spaces.
