“Our First Stop in the Morning - Every Morning”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Where-ever possible in California, we started our day with coffee and pastries from the "Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf". To be honest, our daughter made us the first time because it was in some TV show (or she read about in some celebrity rag) - but the coffee is GREAT! Much better than Strabucks, Peets or any of the other chains. All of the pastries were tasty. The staff was uniformly friendly regardless of store location. While we were there, they also were running a "coffee for the troops" program, where you could buy a bag of beans to send to the troops - with Coffee bean also contributing.
Would higlhy recommend as a stop on your travels and am hopeful that they make it to the North-East.

If you have the time, grab a table and take in the surroundings of bag dogs and shopping.
