We never go out on Valentine's Day because the food & service are not typically as good as usual. Kool Bean was the exception 2 years in a row. I love that place!

This is a neat bistro that I enjoy visiting on vacation. The food is divine and the service is great. They have the best coffee drinks in the Ocean View/Millville/Bethany Beach area. Kool Bean is a must-stop for me.
