“Bad attitude, cold soup and stale rolls”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Looked great from the outside and seemed just our kind of place but the waitress was clearly having a bad, BAD day. The meal was bad enough so we didn't hang around long enough to sample the coffee - and won't be going back. There are plenty other good friendly places in town - like Chocolates down by the lake - so give this one a miss.

“Coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great place to stop. Friendly place, great coffee. The Human Bean is in the heart of Cobourg and much more reasonably priced than their neighbor.

“great place to stop for a coffee between toronto and montreal”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

cobourg is an undiscovered (except by artists!) and lovely town, a great place to grab a stretch on a long drive and to dawdle a bit, looking at all the nice shops. And this is a great place to stop for organic and fair trade tea and coffee. The art on the walls is really cool and different. Toronto foodies, wayne roberts and lori stahlbrand

“Great Coffee House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

If you want a good cappuccino, the paper and to sit on the street watching Cobourg in mid stride then this is the spot for you. Yummy desserts, bagel melts, good coffee and nice friendly locals. A very comfortable place if travelling solo. And hey they were on Restaurant Makeover a few years ago too!
