More than a Coffee Shop, Bottle & Bean Offers Unexpected Surprises

by Holly Harmon 

Bottle & Bean Coffee House & Wine Shop is the newest dining destination to join the south Chandler hot spot, Downtown Ocotillo. Located in the heart of the bustling mixed-use development, the coffee shop and wine bar is an all-day destination, ideal for the busy professional. Open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., the restaurant serves a complete line-up of morning to early evening offerings, including full breakfast and lunch menus, as well as happy hour bites, wine and beer.

Created by Spike Lawrence of Spike Lawrence Ventures and longtime restaurateur and sommelier Tom Kaufmann — the duo behind several successful restaurants in Downtown Ocotillo — Bottle & Bean rounds out their array of establishments, offering the community a versatile place for a business meeting, social gathering or a quick grab-and-go option on the way to the office. Tom’s Wine Cellar showcases wines from the around the world, which can be enjoyed at the restaurant or taken home. 

Kickstart the day or get an afternoon pick-me-up with a specialty tea or espresso beverage featuring beans by local roastery, Infusion. Can’t-miss drinks include the Ocotillo with espresso, oat milk, agave and cinnamon or The Rock with espresso, Tiger spice chai and sweet cream. The State 48 is the bistro’s take on an Arnold Palmer, with green tea, agave and lemonade.

At Bottle & Bean, the culinary creations are given as much attention to detail as the expertly crafted barista beverages. Executive Chef Chris George, who oversees the menus of four other restaurants in Downtown Ocotillo, has created made-from-scratch, crave-worthy dishes that will be the talk of any business meeting. 

Whether dining in or grabbing to go, Bottle & Bean has a variety of breakfast items, including a Cage Free Egg Sandwich with double-cut bacon, house-baked fresh brioche and aged cheddar. The vegetarian Quinoa Breakfast Burrito is filled with scrambled eggs, fire roasted corn, black beans and tomato. Two different versions of an avocado toast on homemade bread have quickly become a fan favorite. 

For the perfect power lunch, the daytime menu features a selection of salads, bowls and sandwiches. Lighter options include a Roasted Asian Chicken Salad tossed with Napa cabbage, bean sprouts, crispy wontons and sesame shoyu dressing; and a Veggie Bowl with heirloom carrots, quinoa, goat cheese, spinach and marinated cherry tomatoes. For a heartier choice, the Steak Sandwich is layered with peppercorn-seared flank steak, arugula, caramelized onion and garlic aioli. 

Bottle & Bean was thoughtfully designed to create a classically elegant, modern space with a variety of seating options for catching up on computer time, brainstorming with a co-worker or hosting a group meeting. There are plenty of tables and cozy seating nooks as well as a central communal table, plus an outdoor patio and a green space with lounge chairs.

A must for the business crowd, the private dining room is an ideal spot for hosting daytime or evening presentations or networking gatherings. Accommodating groups up to 50 guests, the space allows tables to be configured in various formations for any style of event. Custom menus are available, ranging from lunch buffets to multi-course meals. 

Guests can grab some fuel to tackle the day, settle in for a meeting spot that impresses or wind down with colleagues after work.
