“Great Little Coffee Cafe”
Reviewed 28 April 2011

We stayed at the Hotel Veritgo and wanted a close place we could grab coffee (no Starbucks in sight), maybe a quick breakfast. The Cafe Bean was about 2 blocks down. Great spot in the front window to read, websurf, hang out. Convenient. Shop owner very nice.

“Fun little breakfast spot”
Reviewed 29 May 2008

The Hotel Carlton recommended this spot and we weren't disappointed. It is a funky small cafe with excellent coffee and some well made, albeit reasonably standard fare for breakfasts. The prices are excellent and we found the locals who frequent the place were very friendly and willing to share their knowledge of the area.
