Welcome to the Busy Bean

In November 2018 I embarked on a new journey by opening up a coffee shop “The Busy Bean”. What a crazy ride this has been to get to this point.

Who knew that in March 2020 we would face one of the worst global pandemics in history with COVID-19. The pandemic required urgent changes in how we do business and how we serve customers. We quickly began creating a way for our customers to continue enjoying food and beverages through a variety of virtual ordering concepts, car-side delivery, and social distancing. Thankfully we have succeeded in keeping our business going and growing – thanks to this incredible community and our friends and family!

The cafe has grown from a small coffee shop to a bustling cafe offering a variety of beverages, entrees, and homemade desserts. We also offer family-size preorder meals and desserts and host parties, showers, and other events. And we also offer a variety of gift items, t-shirts, Busy Bean mugs and more.

But we have never wavered from our original focus to offer the most freshly ground coffee beans, drip coffee selections, cappuccino, and lattes! Now you can even purchase our robust coffee beans in bags (and we’ll grind them for you!), as well as our flavorful Torani syrups.

Many have asked me about the story behind the Coca-Cola sign hanging in my shop. This 100+ year old sign hung proudly on my Great Grandfather’s Country Store in the early 1900s.

It’s pretty humbling to be able to hang his sign in my store now. I’m so proud to be an Eakes. Hope you will come by and see us soon. We’ll keep the coffee brewing!
