The Sentient Bean is more of a community hub than a restaurant (its tagline is "brewing coffee and community"). With a focus on what's local, it serves homemade organic fare from the nearby Forsyth Farmers' Market and coffee. Menu highlights include the tofu tacos, pump-up-the-protein salad, and farmers' market brunch. Ask about the daily specials to eat the best of the season.
Check the website for upcoming events such as film screenings, open mics, and other events. It's open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
