Great menu, great food. I plan on trying everything on the menu. Each meal is unique, like no other restaurant . It's all gourmet quality and the combination of food in a meal is delightful . I've eaten their at least 10 times and they were all great meals.

Kool Beanz is our go to place for a great meal and a fun evening. Chef and owner Keith Baxter cares about his customers and his food; he is creative, thoughtful, funny and delightful. If you enjoy cooking, sit at the bard and watch the crew at work. For us that always adds to the enjoyment of eating out. Fresh... More

Have been going to Kool Beanz for 15 years on and off. Menu changes frequently so is printed on copy paper. Good atmosphere. Just completely different. A mix of the islands, southern, hippie, student, professional good and atmosphere.

Never disappointed with their offerings. Creative and well prepared. Very popular, hence, can have longs waits (no reservations) and can be crowded and loud. Food, ambiance? Food!!!

Kool Beanz Café is not your typical restaurant. Yes, it has fresh food daily of whatever is in season and it is "hip" for this town. Kool Beanz is the place to take someone you want to impress with local cuisine. It is not filled with upscale décor. It is clean and well appointed inside but small. Come early because... More

They have a new menu everyday. Ingredients are a unique combination of flavors. Service is great. There is outdoor seating. It's a fun, funky kinda place. It's got a great feel. There is no need to dress up. Tallahassee casual is fine, but you will see "date" outfits too. I've been for lunch and dinner several times.

I go to this restaurant about once a month for lunch and would love to go more often. The food is fresh innovative, fantastic, cooked perfectly and tastes great. There is a new menu every day. It's my favorite place in Tallahassee for lunch or dinner. Great "buzz" atmosphere with open kitchen where you can watch the chefs prepare your... More

We love the food at Kool Beanz. If the weather is nice, it's great to eat outside. The area is covered, bright and pleasant. The food is delicious and above the standard restaurant fare. The staff is always pleasant and helpful.
