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.
Normal old Coffee Bean with the usual slow service.
Seems like the Coffee Bean chain teaches slowness and inefficiency in their teams and this store is no exception. You can count on bored staff behind the registers too. Unfortunately this is the best coffee on the block so I begrudgingly patronize the location. I will give kudos for the outdoor fireplace patio however. But if you can, skip over to someplace with faster service and better coffee.
