Kind of a bare bones coffee shop for hipsters. Decor is kind of spartan - OK if you are a Michigan State fan. I'm sure the owner needs to make a buck with all the people hanging out for the free WiFi. I just want a decent cup at a fair price.

My wife and I visited this place on a Wednesday morning and were very impressed with the setting. Had the dark roast of the day and a scone . Both were very good. Service was average. The barista was not real engaged with the customers. The coffee and scones were good.

The place is rather dirty, the coffee was kind of weak and not to hot at all. Have to say I will not be returning....

Place is very dirty. Staff have dirty fingernails and the coffee tasted like it had an oily film on it. I through mine out and won't be back.

We were their last week and the coffee is mediocre and the service is just awful! The place is dirty. Avoid this place at all costs!

As a black man, I have to say that the passive-aggressive racism at this establishment is abhorrent. I was stared at, sneered at, and made to feel unwelcome. All I wanted was my coffee, and these white hipsters treated me like a pariah…They even made comment about my hat, which bore the words ‘Make America Great Again’… They asked me... More

With intense focus on perfection in terms of temperature, process and quality, Urban Bean makes the best coffee in Minneapolis. Baristas aren't regular baristas - they're trained assassins.

Located on Lyndale Avenue with a simple atmosphere. The latte was lovely and tasty. They feature homemade syrups and friendly staff.

I read the other reviews and not sure I agree with much except that it's expensive. I thought the atmosphere was fine. it's stark but I think that's what they were going for and I've been in far worse. It is on the corner and lots of interesting people walking by to people watch. I loved my medium sized latte... More

I Don't get it. No atmosphere. Dirty bathroom just average coffee. Sure the Andrea the giant on the wall counts for something. Like hotel room coffee without being FREE.
