Beyond the Bean

(From Top to Bottom: 1. Mmmm, Biscotti. 2. Macchiato Espresso )

Bean & Beyond Cafe is one of the few reasons we head out to Richmond. It’s a great little coffee shop that serves a mean cup of deliciously made espresso. Located in picturesque Steveston Village, just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Fisherman’s Wharf –we stumbled upon Bean & Beyond Cafe because of the large Illy display in their front window. The beaded curtains hovering over the entrance and contemporary tables and seating, make this coffee shop seem out of sorts in the area. It’s quite tiny inside, not much room to maneuver, but it’s one of friendliest coffee shops we’ve been in.

Tre and I always get a double shot Macchiato Espresso¬†with a drizzle of caramel. The baristas always confirm that we indeed want a real Macchiato, not the one made by “other” coffee shops. The Macchiatos have a smooth texture with just the right amount of foam. Besides coffee, they have a decent selection of cookies, pastries, salads and sandwiches. We haven’t tried their sandwiches or salads yet, but the biscottis pair well with the coffee. Bean and Beyond is the perfect alternative for those sick of having the same boring, tasteless coffee from a certain nameless coffee shop that seems to appear on every street corner.

A nice, hot caffeine boost after a breezy stroll on the docks of the Fisherman’s Wharf.
