I am not a huge Starbucks fan, or of many of the drinks besides regular or flavored coffee. The iced coffee drinks here are fantastic, however! I look forward to trying more from here, via the internet since we are in Indiana. :)

So I love organic food and the idea of non-GMO and no use of preservatives, but if you're going to make a product and charge a lot for it, please don't get romantic by promoting what it's not without having great flavor to back up what you're offering. The big ice cream places make money because their ice cream is... More

Great tea selection of whole leaf teas. My husband got a coffee and he really enjoyed it as well. I really enjoyed how they had liquid sweeteners including a sugar-free Splenda version. This place is a lot cheaper than Starbucks too. Think we spent less than $4 here for our drinks. Should definitely check it out.

Great coffee, friendly staff, free wifi and a pleasant place to sit outside. Who could ask for anything more on a lovely spring day? Not me - just fits the bill.

Service was great. Location was very convenient. I would highly recommend for coffee. I did not try the pastries so I cannot comment; although, they looked very good.

Made several stops at the Coffee Bean. I struggle to find decent coffee in the US - being from Australia where they serve the best coffee in the world - but this cafe serves coffee that is good international standard. Yes they know how to make excellent coffee and serve nice food - recommended.

I am the most fanatic coffee drinker anyone in my family has ever met, however the tea here is delicious. Starbucks does not compare to the coffe bean, they are much better, more educated and polite to their customers. It would be great if coffee bean expands to Texas(I'm there more).

Enjoyed the coffee here. I noticed this is a very popular place out here in California. (I'm from the East Coast) Although I was desperate for a Dunkin' Donuts, this coffee satisfied our cravings.

Wish the Coffee Bean was everywhere, like Starbucks. Great tea selection with whole leaf teas. Coffee is also quite good but the tea selection separates this place from every other coffee chain. Free wifi and the normal pastry and snack selection. No hot food.

That's it good coffee and the best blended (iced) drinks. Founded by a Los Angeles man and has stayed true the beginnings.
