The Sentient Bean
Gay Friendly Coffee Shop in Savannah, GA

Sentient (adj): having sense of perception; conscious. "I think that I am a sentient being" or "Where is the Sentient Bean anyway?"
Warm colors, high ceilings, and delicious smells greet each customer at The Sentient Bean; green plants, natural wood and colorful decorations complete the ambiance. The Bean attracts a diverse crowd, giving the neighborhood a place to relax and socialize while sipping a cappuccino or nibbling on a scone. Seating is available inside and in our unique funky outdoor courtyard.

The Sentient Bean coffee house features a 21 by 42 foot performance space with seating for up to 100 people. The Bean presents an eclectic array of events from ultra indie movies & cult films, to nationally acclaimed acoustic bands & solo acts, to poetry and literary readings, to educational and community forums. During shows, the coffee house offers light meals, fresh baked goods and dessert, as well as coffee, tea, and smoothies.


Read the Times, play a game or listen to the proprietors, Kelli and Kristin, regale you with tales of their trips to the coffeelands. There is always great music in the air along with the smell of organic, fair trade coffee and teas. Our brew is matched by a daily menu of inspired high-quality cuisine, including panini sandwiches, home-baked scones, and a variety of beverages and goodies.


Our name, The Sentient Bean, is more than just a play on words; it is an expression of our ethic. We serve all organic and fair trade coffee, and use organic ingredients in our baked goods and light lunches. Fair trade certification guarantees that low-income farmers and artisans receive a fair price for their products so they may feed, educate, and care for their families.
