We like espresso. This place has espresso. And it's good. The vibe is very down to earth, there are groups of people who are obviously regulars, gathered around tables, enjoying good coffee and company.

Really nice place, has character, nice staff, and dynamite coffee. It's been a long time since I've had an espresso that good!

Always an experience coming here. They remember your favourites, and question when you change it up. Their patio area is a great place with the sun shining and the breeze cooling you down. Great place to meet up with old friends or even new ones. Will always come back!!

Good coffee, right in the heart of Cobourg, a place to rest and take it easy! Business has been around for a long time, more than 15 years. Newspapers available to read.

Standard independent coffee place. The prices are ridiculously expensive given the average caliber of the menu. People seem to lounge around and watch passersby. The aura inside seems to cater to regular customers to the extent that newbies are treated like second-class citizens.

My family just moved to Cobourg, and I walk to The Human Bean almost every day. Charmane is wonderful and so sweet to my sons and I. We love the customer service there, and their coffee!

After taking in the Cobourg Waterfront Festival, we were in the mood for a nice cup of tea. We came in to the Coffee House and noticed a wide selection of Organic teas. We ordered some Earl Grey and the Breakfast Blend Black Tea and they really hit the spot. The Coffee House is a comfortable place to grab some... More
