A welcoming anchor for the Narragansett Pier community,
Cool Beans Cafe is located diagonally from the town beach, serving up fair trade, organic coffee locally roasted by New Harvest Roasters in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
Our friendly baristas are specially trained by New Harvest Roasters staff and are happy to make you premium quality cappuccino, latte, or any of our other specialty drinks year round! Stop by and experience our freshly baked muffins, scones, cinnamon rolls, and locally baked bagels. Famous for our superfood selection, our customers are always welcome to enjoy our free wifi and unique, comfortable seating.
In 2010, Beth Becker & Janeen Davis had a vision to open the one thing the Pier was missing: a staple coffee shop. They aimed to make their shop an anchor for the community, serving up delicious coffee & food to locals and tourists alike. The staff was comprised of both family members and local students, which quickly became a welcoming family to all. After four years of business together, Beth Becker decided to independently own and operate Cool Beans Cafe, whilst remaining best friends with cofounder, Janeen Davis.
Here we are, five years later...
Cool Beans Cafe is now independently owned and operated by original co-owner, Beth Becker.
"The Bean" employs 20+ employees year around, many of whom attend high school and college.
Our coffee continues to receive rave reviews, including recognition as one of RI's best iced coffees by SO Rhode Island Magazine in 2012. The Bean was featured in a 2014 Boston Globe Magazine article as a great place to "fuel up" after a long beach day!
We continue to add new items to our menu that are healthy and locally distributed, such as our Buddha Bowl and Açaí Bowl! We offer catering services to local Narragansett events, the annual town tree lighting ceremony, and many Narragansett Towers events.
We welcome live musicians, book clubs, and groups to entertain and enjoy within our shop.
Cool Beans Cafe is an ideal place for studying, working, and simply day dreaming with free WiFi and comfortable seating. As always, we offer coffee cards which provide customers with their 10th coffee free! We also now offer discounts for students who present a valid URI ID.
