My husband and I were looking for a place to have lunch near Peasholm Park. I googled places nearby. The Coffee Bean was close by. From the outside it looked inviting and it was nice and warm and bright. Our meals were tasty and coffee was lovely. I would visit again if I'm in the area

Called in for coffee and cake on Boxing Day, first impressions were good, the place is bright and airy and there were a few diners, some already eating and a few tables waiting. Staff were very friendly and took our order when we were ready. However, we waited ages for our drinks to arrive and even longer for a scone... More

We visited early December as this was just down the road from where we stayed. Our first visit was fine, and i had teacake whilst my husband had breakfast. The breakfast was substantial and enjoyed by my husband. Our second visit was just for coffee, and whilst we didn't particularly like the blend we chose, it was nothing to do... More

Stopped off after a visit to the park. Worse mistake we made. Ordered cream teas and they came ready made up with spray cream not fresh clotted cream as a proper cream tea. The tea came in a massive pot and a chipped milk jug. Dirty cups. They also don't seem to clean well as if you assess the photos... More

Seems to serve everyone before me so I almost walked out after 45 mins. When the cod & chips did arrive it was ok but nothing special.

Popped in for a coffee on a cold rainy September day. Very quiet. Just had a coffee and a scone. Service and price fine. No complaints.
