Our vibrant and upbeat coffee shop makes you stop and question if you are still in Sharon. Lulu Beans is equipped to serve lunch, breakfast, and dinner.

The society moved out in 1956. In the 1980’s, it was home to Junior Achievement among other uses. It was acquired by the JCL Development team in 2013 and we remodeled it into modern office space for Sunbelt Transformer.
