Whether you’re craving a refreshing iced fruit tea or a treat to cap off your workday, Sweet Bean in the South Loop has you covered. The new cafe churns out pan-Asian bites that span both sweet and savory, including enticing beverages and acai bowls.
In the morning, make your way to work with a matcha or turmeric latte from Sweet bean in hand to help you start your day off on the right foot. Come back around lunch time to try some of the savory dumplings and buns. They’re stuffed with fixings like barbecue pork and salted egg yolk. Prefer a heartier meal? Try the cold noodles with veggies or a signature shrimp sandwich. For dessert, sink your teeth into some of the sweeter pastries. The pineapple bun is an early hit among guests, but you can also grab a sugar-dusted beignet, a sesame bun, or a lemon tart—the exact lineup of pastries changes from day to day. An acai bowl loaded with frosty blended fruit, granola, and honey will also satisfy your sweet tooth!
