If you really love your coffee rich, full, tasty, and fresh....try Joe Bean Coffee Roasters! When your coffee is brewed as you wait, waiting isn't such a bad thing. They have a comfortable little restaurant that offers tables and counter seating, and a surprising little breakfast and lunch menu that makes for a nice start to your Saturday.

Excellent - nice atmosphere, good coffee, walking distance from home. Can also park on the street or behind the building.

I tried a latte the other day. I usually like a flavored cappuccino, but they didn't do flavors. My latter was made with some maple syrup flavor, and that was all that they were able to provide. The staff is very pleasant and thorough in preparing the coffee. My latte was given to me luke warm. It also was very... More

You can get great coffee in quite a few places these days. This place is no exception, but what sets it apart is the fact that the people making your coffee really know their stuff. And, they're incredibly nice about it. They take the time to explain their coffee offerings, then it's your turn to simply watch and learn or... More

I love this place because they keep surprising me. It's not just a coffee shop. Last time I was there they had a "Beer Smash" on the menu. Basically they put fruit in the bottom of a French Press and then you choose what kind of beer you want poured on top, basically infusing the beer with fresh fruit. Amazing... More

I came here with a group of girls from our cafe to learn more about coffee and experience different coffee shops. The staff was super friendly and answered every single question we had in detail. This place was a high fave among all the girls. Great job, Joe Bean!

The barista takes time as he prepares your coffee. It is definitely a ritual worth watching, but in order to appreciate it, you need to have a lot of time on your hands. If you are in a hurry and are looking for a quick coffee to go, this is definitely not the place that will satisfy you. I enjoyed... More

This place served lukewarm garbage and had rude and pretentious staff. I consider myself relaxed and easy going about most things but the down your nose look I got from the people behind the counter when I asked a couple of reasonable questions (one was in reference to the location of the restrooms) was pretty ridiculous and off putting, Their...

We went here for a latte and some coffee, the place is pretty small and the guys at the front desk are very friendly. The only reason I did not give them a 5 out off 5 is because they don't have any good deserts at night, we had some cookies and they were okay but overall pretty cool Place

I happened to attend an open house night at Joe Bean in the autumn, and greatly enjoyed all of the samples and the informative staff. I was impressed by the availability of vegan dishes (to be featured as part of the new brunch offering). The drinks that I sampled were unique and flavorful. I'd like to visit Joe Bean again...
