So I’ve been going to this place for years and it is always delicious. Somehow they manage to keep this place staffed with quality food service professionals and it rarely disappoints. Beer and wine only, no liquor tis one of the few drawbacks I could...More

Food is always good. Menu changes regularly but, quality is always consistent. Busy restaurant but, food comes out quickly so wait is never long. Parking can be difficult but, is manageable.

Kool Beanz Cafe takes their food seriously! The menus are printed (I believe) daily. It’s based on what is in season which makes for delicious & fresh food! Romantic enough for couples or fun for a girls night out!

This is a quirky restaurant with an ever changing menu. The food is always good even though some of the combinations sound strange. This place is always busy so they must be doing something right. Enjoy!

All we can say is awesome!! Busy morning, but service was quick and the food (I had the veggie skillet no egg, and the server offered extra avocado and cheese at no charge)
