There had been a small Boutique
Store called 'The Bee's Knees' with the recent downturn
in economy the owners Anjula, Ashley
and Sydney Bean wanted to change the store to a
Coffee Shop. Sydney came up with the name Juice 'n
, Anjula and Sydney are vegetarians. Ashley just graduated had never been in
the restaurant business before, but always felt she knew what good vegetarian food was all
about. They used to always experiment at home on new recipes and go to
restaurants they liked with the thought of one day possibly opening their own
restaurant. That day came. It began on August 12th 2009 when they opened a little
10 seats cafe that would serve breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through
Saturday, and Brunch on Sunday's. The mission was to be the Best Cafe on the
Rock. Bermuda is affectionately referred to as the rock.
The Juice 'n Beans Cafe was born. There was a lot of learning in those
first couple of months. New items were introduced as daily specials hand written on the
front menu board and inside on the white dry erase board's). The counter became the center of the
action. Local artist celebrities and Politicians started frequentingg
the Cafe. A famous local artist Ernst Bauer started and
ended his day with an Espresso at the Cafe. Some of Mr.
Bauers art pieces adorn the walls. The Town Cryer and a
local celebrity would make a regular trip into the Cafe
and direct island visitors to the best place in town to
have a coffee and relax by the small round table and the
comfy leather seats. Business men started to hold office
meetings. Cafe became the place t to find out all
the local happenings in town. It didnít take long for
the locals to notice. Then as word spread, more and more
people would start to call asking for directions and ask
about the daily special. It was obvious that expansion
was needed. It started first with the spicy
buffet and Samosas and then the Vegan breakfast. For
many locals it became a home away from home, it was like
an extended family. People would come in everyday, some
several times a day.
Wednesday's, during the tourist season Hamilton holds the Street festival known as
the 'Harbor Nights. The opening night on Wednesday
in August. That day we were scrambling to keep up with the demand with lines
stretched out of the door. From then on business boomed.
After the initial rush, during the first
six months we had a lot of interest from people who were
perhaps a little apprehensive about a late night Cafe
and a Juice bar, which is a relatively new concept in
The counter, the round table, the food, the service
were all fashioned to recreate what people had come to
expect from all the vegetarian restaurant.
Today, we continue the traditions that started back in 2009. We strive to provide the best
products, the best service, and the best value in an atmosphere that makes you
feel like you are part of the family. Our family.
