Come dine at the most unique restaurant in Baltimore. Ze Mean Bean Cafe is an eclectic Eastern European restaurant and wine bar. We serve everything from pierogis and holupkis to upscale fare with a Slavic twist. Everything is made from scratch and our extensive wine list has something for everyone.
As our name suggests, we opened our doors in July of 1995 as a unique Eastern European Coffeehouse and Cafe. Ahh - yes, that's where the 'Bean' in Ze Mean Bean comes from! And the 'Ze'? That denotes our 'European' roots. The original concept was simple: owner Yvonne Dornic is of Eastern European decent. Her father is from Czechoslovakia, and her mother's background is Polish and Ukrainian. Yvonne wanted to create an environment much like the coffeehouses of Eastern Europe, which served as social gathering places and outlets for local musicians and artists. Ze Mean Bean Cafe definitely exudes old world charm!
