Love the food and service here! Everything is consistent and the portions really fill you up. We also really enjoy that they have a small children's area with toys! Cool Beans is very family friendly.

great setting for a quiet lunch with a friend with different spaces to sit for as long as you want. Quiche of the day was excellent and could have with salad or fresh fruit. I got the salad with Italian dressing on the side and it was the perfect side. Highly recommend the mango ice tea as well.

I come here all the time for a peaceful, friendly place with good food and coffee. All the meals are made from scratch, nothing pre packaged or made ahead of time. I love the Greek Burrito and a latte relaxing in their comfortable tables by the fire. I also sometimes spend a couple hours working on my laptop. The friendly... More

I live in Chicagoland and visit Madison 1-2 times per year. I always make a point of stopping at Cool Beans. They have excellent coffee and a huge assortment of flavor shots...things like White Chocolate Mousse and English Toffee...and they make a great enhancement to the great coffee and great cappuccino that they make. Service isn't super speedy, but the... More

The coffee we ordered was good! Tasty and in cool mugs! The food they warm up right in front of you....that's right: warm up (not cook). The bread on the pesto chicken sandwich I ordered was hard as a rock and the chicken was rubbery. Obviously not fresh.

One of my favorite coffee shops to take out of town colleagues when visiting. Great coffee, amazing food! Try the grilled cheese and the green tea!

Great cappuccino, comfortable sitting areas and excellent fresh homemade quiche. Their soups are also good. I wish you could find out what they are having in the way of soup and quiche on their website. It is very convenient to Madison College and East Towne Mall. Usually not crowded with good service. A bit on the expensive side but no... More

Coffee is quite good, but food could use improvement. The quiche is particularly disappointing. It gets heavily microwaved, is then tough and tasteless.

I was in Madison shopping with my mother when we decided to have lunch. Cool Beans had been recommended to me by a friend. This turned out to be just the kind of establishment I had been looking for! We were greeted and helped with our lunch and coffee selections by a knowledgeable person I believe was the manager/owner. I... More
