“A bit cold”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is a bit cold wanted a warm cozy coffee shop. But its like keep it cold to get us out of here. Need more leather chairs rather then the hard wooden ones. I am not in prison.

“Baristas that actually make what I ordered”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

Friendly & professional baristas that actually make good coffee...? I’m in.

Whether you're into frou-frou coffee or would like a straight up espresso... these people are actually trained to make you what you want.

It'll cost a pretty penny if you come here everyday, but at least you'll be paying for something that won't disappoint.

I've been to the Human Bean and I constantly get something that doesn't taste quite right or isn't what I ordered.

My #1 rant for coffee houses:
If I order an eggnog latte then that's what I want it to taste like!!

The reason Starbucks isn't 5 stars is just because they are a huge company that doesn't leave much room for the local coffee house. Who can blame them though? They know what they're doing.

“OVERPRICED, tasty drinks made to order”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

Sometimes great music is playing, atmosphere is conducive to long talks with friends to business meetings. Can bring in laptop for free Wi-Fi internet. Can sit for hours, no one will check if you are "done". Drinks are very tasty, made fresh to order, and they have a calorie listing, too! (You don't want to look, trust me.) All good, except for the $$. Just the same, if you sip one or two drinks and stay hours, I think they have earned the inflated prices. Driving through? Not worth the wait time, pollution your running car puts in the air, expense of the drink, and non bio-degradable plastic that your drink will likely come in. Just don't!
