The Bean

The Coffee Bean has a long and interesting history and today is most commonly referred to as simply “The Bean”. It was the first café established on the Balmain peninsular and has remained in business since 1978. The Bean is a Rozelle institution, attracting an array of customers including loyal locals, Sydney foodies, coffee lovers and music fans.

The café has a unique atmosphere with plenty of music and vintage film memorabilia including a collection of classic radios. The playlist at The Bean reflects a diverse and varied taste – there really is something for everyone! Much the same can be said about the food. It is all prepared in-house with passion and flair by our talented chefs. Our specials regularly change to take advantage of seasonal produce and keep the menu fresh so be sure to always check our blackboard.

Whilst the café’s name reflects the coffee culture of Rozelle Village it really has grown well beyond a place to get a delicious dose of caffeine. These days it’s about the quality and variety of the whole menu, not to mention the friendly service the team strive to give all of our customers.


Open 7 days, 7:30am to 3:30pm. Fully Licensed. Catering available.
