This is just as good as Starbucks, but with a smaller menu and smaller prices. Very friendly service, especially at 6am, convenient location to the beach.

A great coffee place with good seating arrangements inside and outside the cafe. This place offers great pastries as well.

Starbucks' coffee always tastes bitter or burned to me so I was delighted when The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf opened up at the mall. All of their coffee choices are great and I especially like the variety of sweets that seem to have fewer calories than those offered at Starbucks...especially the vanilla bean scone. There are also various types... More

Just outside of Macy's on the upper level. I personally like the iced tea but they have all the usual items. Staff was quick but not friendly.

There is nothing worse than having someone making the coffees who apparently has no idea what they are doing. I ordered a latte and when it was served up to me there was half a cup of coffee and half a cup of foam. Hello. LATTE. I took the cup back and was accused by the female masking the coffees... More

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf company is a Los Angeles original, with locations scattered throughout California. The Coffee Bean in the Main Place Mall of Santa Ana is one of my favorite places to have a coffee or latte. The coffee and espresso is great, there is always a good variety to choose from, and the service is excellent.... More

Obviously, the coffee and tea selection is good, and they have an interesting selection of other beverages. The best part, though, is the staff. We find ourselves stopping in just because it feels great to have them shout "hello" as we walk in the door, and dress-up days are a hoot! We can get coffee anywhere. It's the way we're... More

It was Sunday and so after church I decided that I would have some quiet time with my newspaper and a cup of coffee. I chose Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf as I had not been here before, and because the cafe shows outdoor seating (though I ultimately decided to be seated inside). My simple cup of coffee was $1.70... More
