Obviously, the coffee and tea selection is good, and they have an interesting selection of other beverages. The best part, though, is the staff. We find ourselves stopping in just because it feels great to have them shout "hello" as we walk in the door, and dress-up days are a hoot! We can get coffee anywhere. It's the way we're treated here that makes it special.

It was Sunday and so after church I decided that I would have some quiet time with my newspaper and a cup of coffee. I chose Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf as I had not been here before, and because the cafe shows outdoor seating (though I ultimately decided to be seated inside). My simple cup of coffee was $1.70 and was frankly nothing special at all. I chose the "dark roast" and didn't think it measured up to Starbuck's dark roast. After all, Starbucks must be their main competition and is only two blocks north on Main Street, and it ALSO has outdoor seating. The biggest drawbacks for me, though, were these two points (1) loud rock music which took away from my hoped for "quiet time", and (2) a most limited selection of baked good to go with the coffee. There was practically nothing to have with the coffee, and what they did have looked "tired". No, I won't be going here again.
