GoodBean opens second location

GoodBean Cafe has opened a second location at 3240 Hillcrest Park Drive, across from Roxy Ann Winery, and just off North Phoenix Road.

East Medford's GoodBean was built by Mike Mahar, who co-owns the venue with Mike Kell, founder of the original GoodBean Coffee.

The new cafe seats 40 inside, and 24 outside. It features a raised-hearth corner fireplace, overstuffed chairs, free Wi-Fi and Internet counter and a view of the south valley.

Hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The telephone number is 541-779-6466.

In August, GoodBean Coffee received a Gold award for the second year in a row at the 2011 Best Coffee in Oregon Championships hosted in Salem. It is also sold at Food 4 Less, Safeway and Medford Food Co-op, as well as the GoodBean locations.

GoodBean Cafe manager and chef Keith Herrick began his career in Ashland in the mid-1990s and relocated to Cape Cod to run a bed and breakfast before returning to the West Coast.

GoodBean's menu includes hand-made bagels and pastries for breakfast, along with unusual paninis and pizza for lunch.
