This newly renovated coffeehouse is brighter and more spacious than it was; though sadly, parking remains a problem. There is plenty of seating downstairs and upstairs, and both levels have indoor and outdoor seating as well. The ambience is quiet, which is why The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a great place to work, read or hang out with friends.
The food on offer is far more extensive than the drinks menu. For example, there are enticing breakfast options, yummy pastas and tasty smoked chicken fare. But be prepared to pay the price for tasty grub especially if you order extras.
You may also come across some surprises here − such as being served a cold beverage in a plastic glass, even though you’re dining in. So it’s best to ask ahead, if this sort of thing bothers you.
