Coffeehouse, Cafe, Community

The Bean was once known as Sneaky Beans when former owner Byron Knight was around. In early 2020, he sold to Kristy Buchanan, who reopened in early June of the same year. Buchanan, who calls JXN her adopted home, is committed to the community feel Knight offered and to the quality beverages he used to serve.

The Bean offers the usual slate of drinks – still made with locally-roasted Bean Fruit Coffee and drip coffee by Hattiesburg-based Grin – as well as draft beer and wine.

Daily breakfast, lunch and evening small plates and desserts are all on the menu, too, as well as comfortable places to gather within the shop and outside on the porch, especially when the shop hosts live music. Their walk-up window is convenient, too.
