White Chocolate Mocha w/Dbl Shot

Best coffee but the owner has to make it. He know what he's doing with that caffeine. Adding in a double never hurt nobody!

Whether you want a hot cup of coffee or a fancy mocha or other hot or cold drink, Cherry Bean makes everything to order and just the way you like it. Specify how many shots you want, whipped cream, sprinkles, etc. They also sell a great selection of whole beans or you can have them grind it for you. Support... More

Dropped in for coffee and glad we did! Got great welcome from the barista who made a wonderful caramel macchiato which would rival starbucks any day!!!! The bananas foster pie is not to be missed!

I frequent there a lot. It is well lit and able to relax and read the paper. Their coffee is roasted right there. I enjoy fresh coffee.

Consumers beware. This business levies a 50 cent surcharge for using a credit card in violation of California Civil Code Section 1748.1. They break the law and unethically charge a hefty % to consumers who pay with credit cards. Boycotted for unethical practices.

I have patronized "the bean" since 1995 and have never had an unpleasant experience there. Pete (owner) does all the roasting on site and is a hands on proprietor. Stop by whenever you are ready for a "non-corporate" cup of coffee. I drive past 5 coffee shops to go visit the Cherrybean. Give it a try.

This place has had it's ups and downs in the past and present. It's lost a lot of it's great staff, baristas and manager bicker in front of customers, and the shop has become a bit of a mess. Aside from that, the coffee is good and a good business for downtown.

Having frequented Starbucks, we were looking for something non-commercial. Triple 20 oz Americano was excellent! Nice dark roast full of flavor. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed. We liked it so much that we returned the next morning to grab another coffee before heading out of town. Highly recommend!
