“Excellent Coffee & Friendly People”

Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 June 2013

CBTL is the anti-Starbucks. Instead of long lines and mass produced coffee, you get greeted when you come in, and fast, friendly service. The coffee is made so that they can't ruin a pot by pulling cups before it's fully brewed. The bar drinks are very good and well made.

I've never been to any other CBTL, and from what this location has demonstrated in consistent customer service and consistent quality products they should be CBTL's "Flagship" coffee shop. After going here for my lattes anywhere else is just ... meh. Cynda is awesome and always happy to reach out and strike up a conversation. All the staff are always smiling and friendly - never have I not experienced this and I've been going here for quite a long time.

This place beats the heck out of Starsucks coffee in all ways.

One of the best coffee shops around. Wide variety of hot and cold coffee and tea drinks. Good pastries as well.
My only complaint is that sometimes they don't listen carefully to special orders and you don't get exactly what you want. But they always make it right.
The staff is very friendly and helpful (and good looking). They also sell tea and coffee supplies (teas, drink mixes, coffee pots, etc) although these aren't cheap (still worth the cost, IMHO).
