The food is smart, simple and real.



Established in 2003

We started at 20 Front Street in December of 2003. In December of 2008 our lease was up. As luck would have it the restaurant down the street was leaving. In March of 2009 we moved into our current location down the street at 76 Front street in Rollinsford.

Meet the Business Owners: Philip and Elizabeth H.

Philip and Elizabeth started working in the restaurant business together 25 years ago. She was hired to replace him at Bob's Clam Hut in Kittery ME. They remained close over the years and married in 1995. There love of food and nostalgia brought them to work together again at Flynn's News in South Berwick Me. As their affection for food grew so did the desire to branch out on their own. In December of 2003 they made the break and bought the Black Bean Cafe in Rollinsford, NH.Phil's strength being in baking and Elizabeth's in home cooked meals has proven to be a winning combination.
