Best Street Café

In October 2011, construction began on The Blessed Bean Cafe, which was opened in December 2011 on Best Street, Wagga Wagga, NSW.  The Best Street location has evolved and grown to encapsulate The Blessed Bean's ethos of excellence. The menu exhibits local food offerings and trends with the top establishments in larger metropolitan areas.

We run at least four different blends and single origin coffees to showcase the diversity and strengths of coffee origins, processing methods, and natural attributes. Pour 400-500 coffees per day, using 100kg of coffee beans per week!


Airport Café

In March 2012, The Blessed Bean opened the doors of its second espresso bar at the Wagga Airport. The Airport site has been designed to welcome those embarking on travel or disembarking into this city with a tempting taste of the region.  In addition to the food and beverage offerings, The Blessed Bean recently added a display cabinet, supported by Wagga Tourism and local providers, to offer a unique range of regional merchandise and produce.

We believe in what cafes can be. They can be more than a place to buy coffee. We see so much more than that. We see potential, opportunity and responsibility. We see a chance to make a difference.
