Tucked away in the Eagle Harbor Shopping Center, off of Carrollton Boulevard and Smiths Neck Road, sits a cute contemporary coffee café in Carrollton, Virginia.
When you walk into 54 Beans Coffee Bar and Café, you immediately fall in love with the clean modern décor. Walk up to the counter and you are greeted by a friendly (and talented) Barista.
Wanting something light and creamy, I decided to try a whole milk cappuccino. I must tell you—nothing beats a correctly crafted smooth and frothy cappuccino.

While chatting with the Barista I learned that the café is very passionate about supporting the local community. Local pastries, local art, and local events—54 Beans offers a true local coffee shop experience.
Eager to connect with the local community, this coffee bar offers it's space to the public for events. You can attend gatherings for free tutoring, art observation, and even open mic night. This spacious intricately designed café is the perfect spot for an intimate coffee date with friends.
