Consistently great coffee

This is must visit coffee shop on Murphy Avenue. Great cappuccino's. Also serve savory and sweet food - my favorite is their cheese and ham quiche. Plenty of seating indoors and patio. Free WiFi.

Myy friend and I were searching for a coffee spot and unlike her I can't tolerate the computer labs. THis plase is so different and cozy and the wait staff are very nice and the breakfast is divine. The atmosphere was just what I had in mind for a coffee meet, I wish we had such a place in Mountain... More

Outdoor tables in the shade, easy to hang out & talk. Had a great fruit smoothie blended with ice cream, perfect for a hot day, especially since I didn't want more coffee. Excellent coffee selection. Located in the cute Murphy's area of Sunnyvale.

Espresso machiato and green tea were what we tried and they were very good! We sipped our drinks as we strolled around the avenue.

Had breakfast over the weekend prior to hitting the Farmers Market. The food was nice and fresh and the coffee was great. You can tell this is a place that has a lot of regulars that like to hang out and enjoy their coffee. The staff was great and a pleasure to chat with.

A great coffee shop, my favorite, with good snacks as well. The walls are usually covered with interesting paintings (from the Sunnyvale Art Club).

A very nice casual coffee house that also serves crepes, sandwiches and baked goods. Atmosphere, really good coffee, pleasant service. It's like you've been there before, easy to fit in, read a little, chat. The crepes were very good, light, and well filled. Prices were reasonable. I'd stop in anytime.

The Bean Scene is a nice relaxing place to spend some time on Murphy Street. It's good for both adults and children and my husband and I enjoyed coming here with our 3 little grandchildren---4 and under. They liked the eggs, bacon, and bagel plate---one plate was enough for all 3, and we enjoyed the coffee and pastries. The apple... More
