The Better Bean Coffee Company is located on 23 Central Square in Bridgewater, MA. The street is a part of a rotary that connects three secondary highways, Rt. 18, Rt. 28, and Rt. 104. Because of it's location it is very hard to find parking during the day, so most customers park elsewhere and walk to the coffee shop.

The coffee shop is open Monday-Friday 7am-9pm, Saturday 8am-9pm, and is closed on Sundays. It is a decent sized placed with a few tables and chairs for people to sit.I visited during the late morning between the hours of 10-noon. At first many of the customers came in one or two at a time to order coffee, and then left the shop. They use arabica coffee which they get from a custom roaster in upstate NY. The food menu focuses on mainly lunch items, such as sandwiches soups and salads. They have a website that also offers a catering menu, but the selection isn't very wide. http://www.betterbean.biz/
The atmosphere is very relaxed inside the coffee shop and the employees are very pleasant. Inside they played a lot of oldies music like Frank Sinatra, and along the walls they displayed art from local artists in Bridgewater. When I went I ordered a medium ice coffee black and a roast beef classic. The coffee was pretty cheap $2.00, and the sandwich was decently priced for it's size $7.90.
I highly recommend the Better Bean to anyone who lives in the area or goes to school at BSU. It is only a five minute walk from the campus center and the coffee shop offers free wifi.
