Ocean Park- Friendliest coffee bean ever!!!!.
I know, I know- it's just another Coffee Bean....but what makes it so special is the store manager and her staff (don't know her name) are genuinely warm, and know all their customers by name and drink. No matter who is working, they all seem to make the most of their work day and their interactions with customers. I always order the same thing (2 shots of expresso with a dash of coffee- I know, weird!) and they always have it ready before I've even payed.
Though citysearch reviews typically benefit smaller businesses, I felt it was still necessary to give props to an excellent Coffee Bean whose staff makes me feel like I'm supporting a local coffee shop.
A family-run empire of cafe-shops that's been brewing caffeinated beverages since 1963.. In Short Honey-colored oak and leaded glass give a homey touch to this California-based chain of specialty coffeehouses. Commonly referred to as the Bean, this purveyor of high-end blends--from dark roasts to oolongs--built its reputation on the international scope of its seasonal bean offerings (originating from Yemen to Hawaii) and a highly diversified selection of teas. Pastries encourage patrons to sit; espresso makers, French presses and coffee grinders let folks bring it home.
