Bean & Olive 1725 Highway 61 807-577-2326
Cool, white-washed walls juxtaposed with warm, blonde wood, along with a pert foliage wall and crisp, copper bar accents give the newly opened Bean & Olive a distinctly cosmopolitan yet Nordic vibe. Nestled in the foothills of Loch Lomond, catering both delicious coffee and cocktails, it is fully stocked with fresh salads and sandwiches, pastries, and snacks, as well as delectable specials and seasonal offerings. The pièce de résistance is offered up by the lovely owners Jill and Mark McLeod: a classic Aperol spritz, served up in a bougie beveled gold-rimmed coupe glass garnished with a fresh orange slice. A perfect blend of Aperol, Perrier, and prosecco, fresh, effervescent, with a hint of savoury herb, the spritz resembles sunset in a glass—the ultimate après-ski!
