After five years of business operations at the Scottsdale Public Library, we are sorry to announce that the Beneficial Beans Café closed on Friday, December 8, 2017.
The Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC), which operates the Beneficial Beans Café, has decided to cease operations at both their Scottsdale Public Library and Phoenix Public Library locations.
SARRC’s Beneficial Beans initiative will still exist in several other capacities. If you have grown to love their coffee and products, they are still available on www.shopbeneficialbeans.org.
It is the intention of the city of Scottsdale to reopen the café space with a new vendor sometime in the future.
The partnership between SARRC and the Library has had a positive impact on cafe customers, library patrons, and the community at large. We know the customers will miss the food, the coffee, and mostly the SARRC employees who enriched our lives.
