Boston Bean Café Letterbox

The Boston Bean Café is my favorite restaurant in North East. It has great food, delicious coffee drinks, and a casual atmosphere. The menu items include salads, sandwiches, paninis, wraps, etc. My favorite is the chicken salad croissant and the frozen lemonade.


From Erie:
Travel east on Route 20 or Route 5 from Erie. Turn right (south) on Route 89/Lake Street. The Boston Bean is located in downtown North East at 12 South Lake Street

From the east or west:
Travel on Interstate 90 until you reach the North East exit, #41. Exit at #41 and travel north on Route 89. Route 89 will become Lake Street when you get close to the town of North East. You will pass the Post Office on your right - you are very close. The Boston Bean restaurant is on the right side of the street. It has a tan, white and brown striped awning and is located at 12 South Lake Street.

There is street parking on Lake Street, Main Street, or around Gibson Park. There is also parking in a lot behind the building.


This is an indoor letterbox.

The letterbox is located inside of The Boston Bean Cafe. You may want to double check the business hours so that you will not be disappointed. Once inside the restaurant you will notice a small sitting area upstairs. Proceed upstairs. Examine the books on the shelves carefully. The letterbox is concealed inside of a book with a hidden compartment. I’d tell you the title of the book but that would be too easy. I’m sure you’ll find what you are looking for. Remember, it is a very big secret.

Complete your letter boxing activities upstairs, then head downstairs for something delicious to eat!
