By the Bean

By the Bean is a locally owned coffee/tea bar located on the square of Historic Downtown Lincoln, Illinois.

We offer a large variety of fresh, high quality gourmet coffee and espresso-based drinks, a number of non-coffee beverages, such as specialty teas and smoothies, as well as an ever-changing assortment of fresh-baked pastries.

[05/09/17] We will close tonight at 8:00 (May 9th) to do some construction work. Sorry for the inconvenience!

It's Record Store Day. Music is as important to is as coffee is, so we'll be spinning records all day in the store! After you get your coffee, check out Waiting Room Records or Dumb Records for sweet deals. #specialgifts #coffeesandcompilations #vinyl

Gentle Giant from Oddly Correct is all dialed in. Come get a Latte or Cortado! #gentlegiant #oddlycorrect #springspro

If we had a cat it would be a lot like Chris, sitting in the corner, covered in fur, purring and making us super happy. Come hear Chris play a Bellerophon set. It'll be like watching a bearded cat play a Moog.
