A farmer... that wanted Earlham to have a great beignet.
Great Aunt Amy’s beignet recipe is synonymous with all things good and wonderful. Jeff and Nina Easley maintained the tradition of beignets every Christmas morning (and plenty of others) for family and friends until Jeff’s passing in 2020. After losing Jeff, Nina came to the realization that life is short. Joy and friendships are necessities, and beignets have a way of bringing them together.
Nina and Jeff’s family roots run deep in Earlham. It seemed to be a natural fit to bring the love of beignets, coffee and ice cream to the center of town where families and friends can gather. So grab a friend, come in, relax, talk about the weather and the crops, solve the world’s problems, and enjoy.
The mission of Beans & Beignets is simple. Create joy and friendships over good food, coffee and ice cream. Nina would like to welcome you...come in, grab something to eat, relax and enjoy.
