Worth the wait!

Hadn't been to Kool Beanz in years and was happy that it didn't disappoint. Went on a crowded Friday night and our group was more than hungry by the time we were seated. The three of us enjoyed our apps, meals and sides...esp. loved the pork tenderloin and mac & cheese. The coconut cake was also... read more

They have a good selection of interesting choices. I always enjoy coming here for brunch. The few times I came for dinner I liked the selection. The service is always good here.

Kool Beanz Cafe offers dishes with a "twist" or something a little different. I liked this and it was the very thing that brought us to this restaurant for dinner. We were told the wait time was 25 minutes, but were seated in 15 - nice! Our server was personable and somewhat attentive. She was very helpful figuring out the... More

This is a local tallahassean favorite. They sell colorful art on the walls to match their colorful cuisine. Their menu staple "mojo chicken" rocks- a medley of black beans, rice, shrimp, chicken and sausage. They offer a unique daily menu that blends southern cuisine with a tropical flare. Really! Don't miss this restaurant. Service and food won't disappoint! Plus outdoor... More

The food and service are very good but don't go for an intimate evening--it is very loud. The portions are generous and there is always an unusual item on the menu.

Everything at Cool beans is laid back. The food is normally very good, and the menu changes each time I go there

Some of their food was very tasty, but when it's not, they have a lousy attitude about it. I will not be going back even though it is across the street from where I work. I do have to say that other people who have similar tastes to mine really like their food, but I suspect that if they complained... More

Great food in a cozy place. Watch the cooks from the bar or go to the outdoor patio. Lovely. Never eaten a bad meal Love their shrimp and grits and if they have collard even better. Pretty sure I have eaten most of the seafood on the menu. Great for a fun lunch with the girls! The Blackened sea scallops,... More
