A family-run empire of cafe-shops that's been brewing caffeinated beverages since 1963. – In Short
Honey-colored oak and leaded glass give a homey touch to this California-based chain of specialty coffeehouses. Commonly referred to as the Bean, this purveyor of high-end blends--from dark roasts to oolongs--built its reputation on the international scope of its seasonal bean offerings (originating from Yemen to Hawaii) and a highly diversified selection of teas. Pastries encourage patrons to sit; espresso makers, French presses and coffee grinders let folks bring it home.
The coffee extract tastes like mud. Mocha mudslide tastes like mud! These people don't use syrup they use a disgusting powder. It's like fat powder. They are NOT kosher BTW.
consistent, friendly, good! – As good a cappuccino as I've had anywhere in the US - and consistently good, from all of the barristas who've served me - which makes CB&TL (at least this location) unique among chains.
(Note to Peet's fans - CB&TL is a lighter roast than Peet's uses - de gustibus, etc.)
Best Coffeehouse Chain in the World! – This place knows coffee! It has it all...great products, atmosphere, well-trained staff, and attitude! My only complaint is that they don't have more locations. There are two in SF now. The other is on Market St. Their chocolate and vanilla powders are what set their flavored drinks apart from the rest.
Ice Blendeds – Their ice blended drinks are to die for! No other coffee company even can compare to theirs to these. Delicious!!
Trendy and Laid back – I admit, I was one of those pretentious kind that always hung at the local Starbucks, but no more!
The Coffe Bean location at Filmore and Sacramento is very busy because of both streets having a local bus stop. Its very interesting just drinking some coffee and watching all the young and old trendy people walking in and walking by families with their dogs...
10 – Try the mocha latte with soymilk, then you'll know why coffe bean is the best cafe in town.
fat free and great! – Have the fat-free blended coffee drinks. Worth the calories just walk fast on your way home!
