Don't be discouraged by the outside of this restaurant. It might have been a convenience store in a past life but it should not be passed up. Get a tsble indide or even better, Get a seat at the counter unless you are really wanting to have a group conversation. The counter has close up seats to the cooks preparing your food. Not only will you be impressed by the cooking but you will appreciate
all of the food they serve. The food is wonderful!! Great flavors and textures. I had the tortilla crusted mahi which sounds like a sloppy fish taco but the tortilla crust was minimal and just enough to give the mahi a little extra texture. The cilantro lime rice had excellent flavor. Nothing overdone or underdone. Great selection of wine with a few good choices from each variety. Well worth a visit!

We have been to Kool Beanz Cafe many times in the past few years and although we usually have to wait to get a table, it has always been excellent food and good service. They prepare their fish and seafood dishes in unique ways and I wouldn't hesitate to bring out of town friends and family there. Keep up the good food and service!

I recently had dinner here with my family and we weren’t disappointed. After a short wait for a table (on a Monday evening), the service and food were exceptional. Selecting what to order can be a challenge as each dish is unique (and changes each day) and filled with a rainbow of herbs, spices, etc., The portions allowed each of us to bring home enough for a light meal the following day. The seating space inside is limited but there is outside seating if you prefer the fresh air (and can stand the heat). We will return!

Excellent meal. Good value. Very fresh seafood prepared with a Caribbean flare. The dessert was amazing. We had the layered coconut cake. My wife had the mahi mahi and I had the scallops. Great meal. Good service. Good value.
