“Bavarian Delight”

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

Restaurant details
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Coffee Bean/Tea Leaf never disappoints as far as dessert drinks go. We were introduced by a ticket for a free drink through our public library and have been coming ever since for many years now, and they are a nice compliment to Starbucks with a few items on their menu which Starbucks doesn't have. Our favorite is the Black Forest which has marachino cherries and bits of chocolate and coffee bean actually ground into the frothy mixture. There are very good flavored teas as well, but the Black Forests are the ones that keep us coming back. Also like the atmosphere as this place gives off a good vibe.

I needed a pick me up, and I try to avoid places like Starbucks if I can. I ordered one of their special "Ice Blend" drinks, because it was a pretty warm morning. When the total came to $7 dollars, I was baffled. I thought, "Well, maybe they gave me a large size, no worries, I'll drink it." I was given a small size cup, FILLED with crushed ice, not blended. The amount of actual drink in my cup was minuscule.

I realize it's a touristy place, so the prices will be a little bit higher, but $7 for the small "blended" drink is ridiculous

Every time when I see "The Coffee Bean" sign I want to come in. The Coffee Bean in Santa Monica is pleasant place with fresh and tasty meal.
