Beans & Leaves is located at Regent Village in the heart of Grace Bay.
While most visitors to the Turks and Caicos are most likely accustomed to finding a Starbucks on nearly every corner, they won’t find one during their stay on the islands. Instead, the island of Providenciales has its own version of the hip coffee shop: Beans & Leaves by Island Brew.
While Beans & Leaves certainly isn’t the first coffee shop to open on Providenciales, the establishment sets itself apart from the others by offering a variety of menu items that aren’t available elsewhere. The inviting café also offers a great selection of warm, freshly baked treats daily.
A cozy, hipster ambience greets visitors as they enter Beans & Leaves, a space with stylish dark walls, comfortable seating, and warm wooden accents. The barristers are friendly, and they take coffee seriously as a true barrister would. The shop’s extensive coffee menu may cause indecision as patrons deliberate between an espresso, ristretto, or cappuccino.
But for visitors who don’t favor coffee, Beans & Leaves also offers freshly brewed teas, smoothies, and sweet bubble teas (or boba) served in a variety of flavors. For patrons who have come hungry, the pastry selection comes with a twist—next to the coffee shop regulars of pan au chocolat and croissants, customers will find decadent Filipino-inspired treats such as the light and airy coffee bun, and the Ensaymada. The Philippines adopted the Mallorcan ensaïmada (commonly spelled ensaymada in Philippine languages). The localized pastry is a brioche baked with butter and topped with grated cheese and sugar. Another variation is available with buttercream and contains purple yam, or taro.
For those looking for a light lunch and a quick respite from the heat, the cool interior of Beans & Leaves offers generous seating and free Wi-Fi. The coffee shop offers a selection of freshly made paninis ranging from chicken-and-pesto to a vegetarian option, but for those on the go, pre-made sandwiches that include tuna, chicken salad, and ham and cheese are also available. Patrons also have the option of grabbing a healthy couscous, hearty vegetable salad, or even a selection of fresh sushi rolls made daily.
To satisfy a sweet tooth, cakes and cookies are also on offer, as well as grab-and-go snacks for those in a rush. But if time allows, sip an ice-cold frappe in the shop’s outdoor seating area that allows for people-watching in Grace Bay before continuing on with some souvenir shopping.
Opening hours are from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Saturday, and 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM on Sundays, which makes for a regular crowd either catching up with friends or checking up on emails. Bonus: Conveniently situated in Regent Village in the heart of Grace Bay, Beans & Leaves is a short walk or easy cycle from most hotels and resorts in the Grace Bay area.
