When Kool Beanz first opened, I was dazzled. My husband and I found Kool Beanz to be the most exciting restaurant addition to Tallahassee since our move from California....distinctively so. Not only did we eat there often, but we really got to know the staff and the regular dinners. Patterns seemed to be established, especially for Friday nights. Kool Beanz... More

This place never disappoints. When guests visit it is a must-stop for a meal. Atmosphere is casual - and though indoors can be loud, outdoor seating is fine even in Florida weather. Very popular and with limited parking it is a challenge even getting in the door. Meet that challenge and go - you will wind up making it a... More

Awesome food and atmosphere but a little pricey. Good quality though so you get what you pay for! All their food is fresh and really yummy.

Excellent and diverse menu with a great number of options that are both healthy and very creative. A great stop in July at the beginning of the book tour!

Excellent, innovative menu with friendly, helpful and engaged staff. Great place for lunch or casual dinner with food prepared with attention to detail. Consistently good without being pretentious.

Loud boisterous bistro with creative and eclectic menu. Good service great food.for a light lunch/dinner try the black bean cakes with a spring green salad, unless you like your salad dressing very sweet, pass on the raspberry dressing and substitute. The bread, regular or whole wheat, is excellent. The menu changes fairly often but you can be assured of creative... More

My wife and I have dined here regularly for many years. We've celebrated numerous special occasions at Kool Beanz in Tallahassee and we've always enjoyed our meals. Also, we have always enjoyed wonderful dining and drinks with great friends here. The wine selection is good but you can also bring in your favorite wines for a nominal corkage fee. A... More

This was our first visit to Kool Beans but will not be our last! The menu shows that the chefs here are crafting their foods. Entrées are paired with appropriate side dishes. My husband enjoyed a Grouper meal that was fantastic. I enjoyed a pork loin meal. Prices are what you would expect for such a special meal. Come here... More

Kool Beanz Cafe was recommended by friends as an offbeat place for dinner while in Tallahassee. I had taken my son to an audition at FSU and we decided to try it. Other than the cramped parking and waiting time, it was as advertised, we truly enjoyed the food and were able to have a conversation even though it was... More
