Small but nice coffee shop with espresso drinks and pastries, better than Starbuck's any day, and there's no Peet's locally (except inside the Raley's store). Reasonable prices and good service. Easy to drive into and out of if you are leaving Oakhurst on 41 going south (on the way home from Yosemite).

My husband and I came here every morning while visiting Yosemite. Really great coffee, tasty food, and friendly service. Wide variety of single origin beans for pour overs. Also, they took pride in making unique espresso drinks correctly (my husband likes cortados). Added bonus is their commitment to minimizing their carbon footprint, the beautiful art on the walls, and the local regulars.

If you are looking for a gigantic breakfast served hot off the grill, this is not your place. Coffee is the specialty here, and they serve it in every form you can imagine....or concoct!
Breakfast food is primarily pastries, but there are 2 varieties of quiche......and they'll even stuff a piece of it on a bagel with cream cheese if you wish. Breakfast sandwiches are made en masse and reheated, but the cinnamon rolls are really what you should try if you want something to go with the delicious coffee.
No matter what you eat or drink at Cool Bean, be prepared for long lines on the weekends. Everything is available to stay or go, and there are plenty of tables both inside and outside. For a great coffee fix, you can't go wrong at the Cool Bean.

Had a fresh brew that was great lots of choices. Cinnamon roll is great with lots of icing. The artichoke spread really makes the breakfast sandwich.
