Small Bistro with good food, wine and beer. Noisy inside.

Fairly small inside dining with additional outside under cover dining area. Open kitchen with bar seats for those who like to observe the chefs work. Funky but interesting art on the walls. Friendly service. Parking often an issue unless you arrive early, say 11 am, or late, after 1:30... read more

This place has been a local favorite for years. Outside and indoor seating is available but we always try to sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen. It is a little loud but always hopping and good people watching. Food is always consistently good and portions are large. If you like fish you cannot go wrong but the flank steak... More

Kool Beanz. The name says "we dare to be different & kool" and they live up to their name. Being an Ole Boomer, I like the place. It's eclectic. Eat indoors or eat out doors, your choice. Want a beer? Choose between imports & domestics. And the wine list! Too many choices. If you have difficulty making your adult beverage... More

Had dinner with friends at Kool Beanz Café and their menu is very interesting. It's a small place with great service and a wide variety of choices. There is a great offering of all kinds of items that are prepared right in front of the counter where you can watch the cooks at work. They have a great selection of... More

We stopped in for an early dinner and got ahead of the rush. We were seated quickly and service was good. It did hit a snag as the dinner crowd came in, slowing the main course. The food was all tasty and our waitstaff was attentive. Glasses remained full. I would put this place in the "If I'm in town,... More

While the brunch here at Kool Beanz and the lunches have always been wonderful and I have enjoyed them each time, I would not be able to say the same about dinner. My experience at dinner was not half as wonderful. The selection of food and desserts is so wonderful usually at lunch that I guess I was led to... More

We make it a point to visit for brunch when in Tallahassee. The full English breakfast is outstanding. Champagne for $5 a glass, yes please! This time we also tried the sweet potato waffle, a deal at $3. This was quite possibly the best waffle I have eaten, filled with sweet potatoes and nuts. Real English bangers are served, which...

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 fab! Friendly staff always... 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.
