Another visit to Cool Beans. This time, I decided to try the Caprese Quiche (mozzarella cheese, basil, garlic, tomato, etc). I was not pleased, nor was my wife. We often order different items to share and compare (she had a yogurt concoction). The eggs were watery (did the eggs come from a carton or from the shell?) and the flavorings... More

Beautiful decor with friendly service. Nice fireplace in the center of the room dividing the room. We had a bowl of soup and talked about the decor

Great find. We eye-spied Cool Beans Cafe across the parking lot after deciding we didn't want one more Starbucks or another chain. Excellent coffee, quiche and other breakfast offerings plus relaxing ambiance and pleasant staff. We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing start to our day and will return next trip to Madison.

Coffee house atmosphere with lots of personal sitting areas. Decent coffee. I had their dark roast. California breakfast sandwich with avocado was a surprise.

Excellent coffee! Traditional coffee house feel but with a large fireplace for those cold fall and winter afternoon breaks from shopping at the adjacent East Town Mall. Right next door to Family Christian Bookstore...a big, big plus! Definitely recommend!

The food is always excellent here and the seating is arranged so that it is somewhat possible to have a private conversation. The soups are great as are the sandwiches. My only critique would be the pastas that are included as a side with sandwiches. I have been eating here since the restaurant opened and I don't think I have... More

I found this lady on eHarmony and we decided to meet half way, which was this place. We had a beverage and small sandwich and sat by the fireplace. We ended up talking about 2 hours. Very friendly atmosphere.

A comfortable place for a casual lunch. Good, slightly unique food, but something for almost everyone.
