The Wise Bean

Free WiFi With A View In An Allentown Pa Cafe

With the surge in popularity of the mighty coffee bean and the modern-day café serving as a virtual meeting house for people from all walks of life, it might suffice to say that art and coffee now go hand-in-hand. In all reality, it could be even more accurate if you were to say that art and coffee are now one and the same. For this reason and several others, Bethlehem Pennsylvania’s art gallery-esque Café, The Wise Bean, has a well-deserved spot on our list for…

Free WiFi With A View In Philadelphia, Pa

Of all the off the beaten path attractions in the Lehigh Valley, it is arguable to state that The Wise Bean is clearly the most caffeinated. Pull up a chair in this cozy café and let the world unwind whilst you experience a heightened sense of awareness due to the consumption of “the boldest beans in town”

Why We Love It

For starters, it’s one of the staples of Pennsylvania’s Steel City and therefore serves as central meeting grounds for the Allentown – Bethlehem – Easton, Pennsylvania – New Jersey metropolitan area. Historical Bethlehem isn’t just the home of Sands Casino, it’s also a landmark site for cinematic releases, rural attractions, nautical attractions and museums. This place is the perfect pitstop for anyone touring Heritage Trail or Bethlehem’s charming shopping district. Bonus – – – ample outlets for Wi-Fi plugging.This independent coffee brewery pairs modern style with traditional housing and adds just the right amount of humor. Locals rave about their beans as if they have magical powers, so out-of-towners are encouraged to stock up. Have we mentioned there’s smoothies?

What’s The Atmosphere?

In a few words, vibrant, colorful and upbeat, the ideal stop on a shiny summer day. Imagine a cool refreshing popsickle, one you can walk inside of, sit down and read a newspaper inside of, all without the brain freeze. That’s what life looks like at the Wise Bean.

What’s The View?

Street-level but still impressive. The beautifully decorated storefront opens up onto a picture-perfect tree-lined street. Inside, the cool green walls add a fresh and futuristic touch. See the video below to catch a glimpse into the look and feel of Easton, PA.

Where To Cop A Thinking Spot

The stoop outside. The adorable outside seating area is complete with a boutique cafe table and a few steps leading to the front door or, as we in Philly like to call it, a stoop. It’s excellent for people watching, sun bathing and catching up with friends or, you know, hammering out that next award winning screenplay.
