This is a quaint below-street-level coffee shop, and was a welcome stop on a rainy day. We had a nice lunch in a surprisingly roomy but homey dining area attached to the coffee shop section. The sandwiches were tasty; my only small issue is that...More

Cool Beans has been around more than a few years, so locals know it; if you're passing through, it's easy to miss. As another review said, sometimes parking is a problem - on-street only. If you can't do steps, not the best location, as it's...More

Cool Beans has the best menu for a coffee shop! They use local goods (blueberries this month!) when possible and their ingredients are always super fresh. Love to stop in mid-afternoon for a pastry or cookie. Also a great spot for a quick breakfast, lunch,...More

My husband and I stopped here for some coffee. It's a cute little hidden gem that you walk down into from the street. They have great coffee! We got cappuccinos and blueberry scones and both were amazing! :)

Did you ever get one of those food fetishes where you just have to have a certain food, and nothing else will do. I had that the other day and wanted some oatmeal. Heard about the oatmeal at Cool Beans Coffee and tea and had...More
