Ivy & Bean has absolutely lovely lights and a dreamy ambience.  It’s apt for bibliophiles with its unique aura and a sense of unhurriedness. Go for a quiet cup of coffee with your favourite book; you won’t feel disappointed.  And here’s a plus—the menu has scrumptious options to try out, and is wildly popular too.
