The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 15, 2012

it's coffee. It's good and consistent store to store. But, I normally prefer Starbucks or Peets if we're doing the chain thing. Given a choice, my wife always picks Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. I think she believes it's more family and less corporate. For this trip, we started our mornings out here and I was a little surprised how salty the pastries seemed to taste. Though, this didn't stop us from gobbling everything up.

its like any other chain coffee place but they have great seating with cozy chairs (if you can get one) and really good coffee/ espresso drinks.
