I have said it before and will say it again, Cool Beanz is without a doubt the best coffee shop in Ipswich. Fantastic food, great coffee and it's staffed by a wonderful group of people. Don't expect a fast food / fast drink place, food is made to order and drinks are made properly and not rushed. 10 out of... More

Tried a few bacon rolls on my morning walk with my baby boy and this was by far the best! Crispy bacon and lots of it! Very friendly staff and nice relaxing atmosphere, been recommending to all my friends!

Very handy for Portman Road, home of Ipswich Town, and they are always open before the game. The coffee is very nice, you can buy a snack and they have loyalty cards. The price is reasonable and it's a nice coffee shop to relax in.

I visit here with my daughter before home Ipswich Town games and we are always greeted with a smile . Yolanda, Glenn and the rest of the team have created a coffee shop that has its own character combined with excellent coffee and a wide selection of food. Can't fault anything.

I go here weekly for coronation chicken sandwiches on rye - yum. The pork and chilli hot sausage rolls are sublime. The drinks are so good, much better than other well known brands. The cakes look good enough to eat.

Great coffee and a nice bacon Brie panini for my lunch. The side salad with balsamic dressing and tortillas instead of greasy crisps is a nice change from other places. Cool decor and friendly staff make it a great place for a break. Cakes are a bit synthetic and mass produced tho.

I come here often to top up my caffeine level. The staff are great and attentive, however can be stretched at times when it's busy. Don't let this put you off though as the food and coffee is much more flavoursome than some of the larger establishments.

It would seem that the management have not read the reviews on this site, which have been identifying the same issue since last summer: your service is way too slow. I have been in there quite often of late, but every visit has been the same - one person serving on the till AND making the coffee. This is ridiculous,... More
