A gem in mid-town Tallahassee. We have dined here for dinner twice and lunch once. A constantly changing menu with fresh offerings. Servings are generous so we often order an appetizer or salad and share an entree.

July 2014, my second visit & to celebrate my birthday. Just as wonderful as my first. Very eclectic "foodie" restaurant. Menu offerings change and some entree's the same as before. Atmosphere to my liking, not quite and not too loud. Staff knows what they are doing. Local artwork adorns the walls. Grill in view and if you sit at the... More

My boyfriend and I went to Kool Beanz Cafe for the first time and LOVED the food. I got the duck and we both agreed it was delicious, it was my first time ever having duck. However, the service was not friendly. It wasn't bad service but never once did we get a smile.

Kool Beanz delivers refined food in a friendly atmosphere. Great place for Florida sea food and cutting edge local creations.

Kool Beanz is always a delightful dining experience. The food is unique, the wait staff is knowledgeable and efficient, and everyone is so friendly. It is a bit too loud inside, but the outside dining area is great.

On previous trips to FSU --we heard alot of high praise from locals that it was always packed . We made 2 or 3 different attempts to eat there -- twice for breakfast at 930am -- the wait was too long. Another time we rolled in about 330pm-- only to find out they shut down from 2pm to 5pm.

This restaurants menu changes with the seasons to ensure that the food they serve is quality and in season, and you can definitely tell. Not only is the environment and service great, but the food is beyond exceptional. Unfortunately I'm on a college student budget so I'm stuck with my meal plan, but if I could, I'd eat here everyday!

This is a must if you are in the area. We found this place on Trip Advisor and it's no wonder why they are rated so high. Great service and even better food. I had the scallops and they were outstanding. I would definitely come back!

Lunch with my friend this afternoon could not have been much better. We each had very different dishes and were well pleased. She ate falafel as the focus of her lunch while my plate featured perfectly spiced and cooked ocean scallops. The woman who coached us through the menu and served us so gracefully was a delightful treat. Be back.... More

We sat on the outside patio area since the inside had 30 min wait (even on a Monday evening). Plenty of choices with many fish/meat/vegetarian options. Each dish had some interesting and different sides and the staff accommodated switching of sides on a dish for one of the person in our party. I had Pecan crusted trout (two large portions),... More
