Located in a restored, early 19th century barn in scenic Pomfret, Connecticut, The Vanilla Bean Café is owned and operated by the Jessurun Family: Barry and Brian, with occasional appearances by and help from the rest of the family.
When we opened our café our philosophy was simple: Create a place where we would feel comfortable and serve food that we would enjoy eating – if we wouldn’t eat it, we certainly wouldn’t serve it.
House-made soups, sandwiches, salads and burgers comprise our basic menu, but daily specials made with creativity, imagination and seasonal ingredients, spice up the menu. We offer baked goods, such as muffins, bagels, macaroons, and cookies —and don’t miss our decadent desserts.
Relax with a glass of wine, enjoy the sunshine and dine al fresco on the patio. Our menu takes on all new dimensions when it moves outside. Fresh fish and other seasonally inspired grill delights appear in addition to our regular kitchen menu. Be sure to check out the blackboard lunch or dinner specials.
Our goal is to serve you good freshly made food, in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. As Eileen Jessurun told a customer, “We provide comfort foods in a comfortable place.”
