One of the most unique Cafes in VT- The Radio Bean is one of my favorites. SIt outside or in for coffee, teas, and many exotic liqueurs, beers and wines. They have specialty coffee drinks and the usual bagels and home baked as well. Nights at the Bean are full of eclectic variety of music, including their now famous open-mike night. My favorite option? Being able to glide from the cafe to the adjacent restaurant, Duino Duende!, and again over to their equally atmospheric bar, Light Club Lamp Shop- which is encrusted with vintage funky lamps from floor to ceiling, because they are interconnected. So going to Radio Bean is like an exotic adventure. Great service, very laid back and friendly. the owner takes pride in being a connected member of the local community- we take pride in our big hearted cafe and more.

A duet was playing in the Red Bean, and the restaurant was buzzing with cozy lighting and folks of all ages enjoying LOCAL food cuisine and beverages (we tried the steamed maple milk). I took my 17 year old daughter who is an emerging foodie and thinking of attending UVMs CALs school. We shared the butternut squash soup and greens specials; the recipes for which the restaurant NEEDS to make available. I had the fish tacos and she had the squash sandwich. Service was attentive; they took the time to explain the ingredients and prep. I will go out of my way to go again.
Radio Bean is a nice place, but it could use a little more seating. Also, given that Bean is in the name, it would be helpful if they listed coffee a little more prominently on their menu. Otherwise, it is a cool place, where a lot of interesting music comes through. One other thing though is that it would be nice if some of the music that is there would be a soft enough volume to comfortably sit inside and listen to it.
Very much enjoyed the atmosphere and drinks at Radio Bean. There are all these magnificent lamps and lanterns hanging around and they had more than 10 hot cocktails on the menu. Exactly what I was looking for on a cold evening in Burlington. Whats more, they had multiple live bands playing that night... a Wednesday. Would absolutely return next time Im coming through the area!
Great place to see a huge range of music genres and get a *quintessential Burlington experience* which is to say it is grungy, hippy, hipster, and dank. Very tiny venue. I like that they offer ear plugs. You can get great food right next door at Duino while listening to music.
This place is what every cool local joint should be. There is great food, cold booze and amazing music. Almost every inch of space has something cool and interesting to see/experience.

Owner Lee Anderson is a bohemian god and a total civic role model. The Bean rocks. Dont let the hippie vibe throw you. This is a first rate coffee house. I met my wife there. 5 stars.
Great cocktails, fresh French press coffee, inexpensive. Great Funky vibe with friendly, accommodating staff. Interesting menu, Food looked delicious. Live music lineup every night.
Bartender makes an excellent cortado to keep you caffeinated through a night of excellent live music (saw Dreamt here and loved them). Some fun cocktails on the menu too!
One of the most unique bar/coffee houses in Burlington, totally supporting live music of all varieties. The stage is a continual flow of new and emerging talent.
Love this place. The chai. The ROOT. The drinks! The food! The sustainable, progressive values. Everything is great about this place. A true Burlington gem.
Definitely a cool place, and it IS July 4th, but I had to REALLY wave down the bartender because I was basically ignored. Im sure its great any other time.
Such an awesome, amazing place. Anyone who visits or lives in the area should go there. I absolutely LOVE it. Such good people an such good music!!!!

Great place to see live music. Im not really a fan of anything they offer as far as drinks go but they dont make you buy anything.
Love this bar! Its the go to bar for the bohemian crowd. Overall food, drinks, and atmosphere is great without being to pricey.
Totally out there setting / unique takes on a variety of dishes with portions larger than small plates / slow loris service
Pretty good food and drinks, and the connected store fronts help create a lot of character at these bars and restaurants.
