“Welcoming Staff, Good Ambience, Free Wi-Fi...”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

This place, if based on one's need for a variety of coffee drinks and free wi-fi while traveling, does the job right. They've got fine music, tasty snacks, comfortable seating, etc. At night in BSB, there isn't tons to do in the first place, so we found this cafe to be relatively happening, with a mix of locals and expats alike, and it was recently quite busy with folks watching football on the television. Another reviewer mentioned it not being a Starbucks, but that's totally fine (and according to Wikipedia, the first Coffee Bean opened a few years before Starbucks).

“Good for ice blended coffee”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

I like the Cinnamon ice-blended and the Caramel ice blended. If you ask for "extra extra whipped cream" or "tons and tons of whipped cream", they build you a whipped cream tower that sits on the domed plastic cover of your drink - AMAZING!!

“CBTL at the Mall in Gadong”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

CBTL may be a bit pricey but they have comfortable seats, Wifi (that the nearby Rizqun Hotel does not have), a few powerpoints for plugging in those electronic gadgets, healthy sandwich selections (and a good size) as well as non-coffee/non-tea drinks (although they are a bit sugary).

“just plain good coffee”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

several branches in Bandar Seri Begawan which is lovely just by the side of the road, in Gadong, to hang out with friends is good but its quite noisy since its in the Central Business District, love the coffee but price is quite expensive.
