About

Sarah and Liv with BEAN writing. Liv drinking Coffee  Hello & welcome to our happy cafe!

Proud winners of Derby Food and Drink Awards best cafe in 2012 and 2014 and with Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013,2014, 2015 & 2016 we are an award winning cafe to boot!. 

Bean is a partnership between Sarah and Liv…a mum and daughter team who have one simple aim, to serve delicious drinks and freshly prepared food with more than a little love and lots of passion. We opened 2010 and our large airy space is somewhere you can relax, reflect and rejuvinate. Tucked away at the back of Friar Gate Studios with a ‘where on earth is it’ style illusiveness, we are here to serve those in the know.

The welcome is great and the service is always warm and smiley! The coffee is great and the service is always warm & smiley. We are a place to feel relaxed and a place you’ll want to come back to whatever the time of day. We are open for early morning breakfast, lunch and make cake that knocks your socks off!

We genuinely love what we do and we hope you do too.

See you soon!

PS We also do outside catering & private parties.
