Just another poor coffee shop. And a long wait to receive your order. I'm sure much better elsewhere.

I keep reading about how great the coffee is at the Coffee Bean, but I've never found one that makes decent coffee. My most recent experience was at LAX, where I waited in line for 15 minutes for a stale pastry and undrinkable coffee. I drank about 3 mouthfuls of my latte and then dumped it out. I've never discarded... More

We thought we'd had the most over-roasted coffee bean product with a certain chain we won't name, however this place tops even S's dark french roast. I had a shot of espresso, and it was less than 2 Tablespoons of liquid. Neither one of us could finish our coffee; it was that bad.

Can't beat the Black Forest ice blended (and all the drinks) - and the staff is always really friendly. Easygoing, relaxing, comfortable place to meet somebody, and excellent wi-fi!

This is a nice place. It seems that there are Coffee Bean people, Starbucks people, and then people who prefer independent coffee houses. In L.A. there are a LOT of Coffee Bean people. I'm not exactly one of them, as I find their products to be a little too lightweight but I got spoiled by having the best kona shipped... More

The overall experience at this coffee shop was very good. Though one of the orders was not prepared right they fixed the problem immediately. The prices are compatible and service is very good.

Tried the mocha coffee and really enjoyed it. The calorie count shown on the menu in the store didn't match to what is listed on their web site, so not sure which to believe. The place has a good selection of hot/iced coffee's, tea's, etc., and also offers some food items like parfaits and bakery items. Would stop in here... More

Very good service and extremely nice employees. The coffee is good but not as good as Pete's Coffee or Starbucks. Order the French Roast for the best coffee. Nice place to sit and have a pastry.
