The Scrawl on the Wall

soy latte

No matter how hard I try, sometimes I can't help but give in to the urge of using a public bathroom. I guess you could say I've had some horrific experiences that involved someone walking in on me even though the door was locked! I sometimes get flashbacks of that fateful day which reminds me why I don't use public bathrooms, but sometimes you just have go.

So I search around the small yet packed cafe to locate the bathroom. I spot what looks like a door and head toward the back, but right before I could make my way to it. This guy walks out of the bathroom with a look that says he's done way more than just pay the water bill. I stood there a bit paralyzed unsure of what I should do. My mind told me to go running in the other direction but my bladder had other plans. So I braced myself for what could truly be " Poopagedon" As I turned the doorknob I was hit with a smell that could bring tears to the eyes of a rugged gansta. I screamed in silent agony, I knew I had to make it quick so I ran towards the toilet, did the do, washed my hands and was out of there.

While I was in there I did manage to take a picture of the cool graffiti that graced the smelly walls. I figured why not sacrifice my sense of smell for the greater good of man kind!

So long story short, if you have to use the bathroom while visiting The Bean make sure you bring a gas mask! You never know if you'll need it!

For those of us who need to

For those of us who need to use the bathroom almost immediately after consuming a cup of coffee, the Bean is a great choice.

The restrooms are located at the very back of the cafe directly behind the drink cooler. As an added bonus, there's a plush, comfy chair located uncomfortably close to the bathroom door. It's definitely adorable, but you are creepily close to the toilet entrance. Anyone exiting is going to practically run into you.

It would probably be easy to slip in from the street undetected just to take a pee. It's a pretty busy coffee shop so you don't have to fear receiving the stink eye from a suspicious barista.
