As a frequent traveler I would say that the coffee at Beans is better than most coffee you will find in the bigger cities. The service is great, food good and there's generally a buzzy vibe. The only negative is finding parking!

I'm sorry but both attempts at a single espresso and could not enjoy the very bitter and salty flavour Maybe it's just me but it really was not nice. This is the kind of espresso that converts people to cappuccino.

Im a very very fussy latte drinker, in all my travels, local and abroad I have not found a better latte. Well worth a visit

We have been to Oudtshoorn last year and stumbled across Beans About Coffee... This year we did the Garden Route and was quite chuffed that there's a Beans in George as well. It was no brainer to stop for Coffee in George, to and from Tsitsikamma. And as always, tasty sandwiches, delightful cakes and a craft selection of roasted coffee... More
