Kool Beanz Cafe has an exceptional menu that has innovative takes on many classic dishes. The prices are high for Tallahassee (although it is a steal compared to any major city). The food portions are not overly large nor are they small. The service is always good. This is definitely a place worth visiting for a nice meetup or to... More

Had planned on dinner at Table 23, but a packed parking lot (perhaps a party) sent us to our overall favorite place in Tally. Enjoyed apps of fried oysters atop cheese grits and clams in a fennell-saffron-tomato broth. Shared an arugula salad (with bacon, mozzarella, artichoke, red onion and smoked tomato vinaigrette) and an entree of sea scallops (perfectly cooked)... More

We decided to go here to see if the reviews were just fluff or if Kool Beanz is really that great. I have to say, the food here really is amazing. I was very pleased. The portions are just right, too. Not too much, not too little. I will go back every time I go to Tally. We didnt order... More

I never give out a five (5) rating. Well, almost never. But this one earned it. The place is funky but spotless. The staff are very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. It's a small place and appears to be well liked by locals, a good sign. We had the wedge salad, frog's legs, flat steak and duck. The wedge was outstanding... More

Found this restaurant rated in TripAdvisor. It was a great choice. Extremely entertaining interior, much to fill the eye. I found a number of dishes that I wanted to try so I paced myself. All were wonderful, the sea scallops for the entree were delicious. And the meringue covered coconut cake was to die for.

Stopped in late and was only guest in outdoors cafe which allowed me - with the help of excellent waitress Spencer - to briefly visit a rarified gastronomic heavenly place. The seafood jambalaya was pure love in a porcelain bowl and it along with Ms Spencer made my Florida visit something special. I'll be back!
