ABOUT Nautical Bean


A Local Cafe with a Pop of Pop-Culture Personality

We are a family owned coffee shop with a simple goal – to give our customers the best coffee, food, and service that we possibly can.

Our eccentric decor comes from my various art and memorabilia collections. I wanted the shops’ personalities to shine through as a local 80s and 90s pop-culture mecca.

We aren’t coffee snobs, we aren’t a corporate chain, just a simple place you can come and relax. We invite you to come try it for yourself!
