Helpful staff and good coffee.
They have the best chai tea lattes. No one makes them like they do. They also have very delicious pastries. The staff is very friendly. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
Probably the worst, ok second to worst breakfast burrito ever. Second round reheated potatoes with almost semi fresh scrambled egg and 7 week old microwaved red bell pepper with a splash of well needed cheese which probably came from the underbelly of a...I'll never go to coffee bean again.
Mostly a typical Coffee Bean location except about half of the employees here - at any given time - will have a bad attitude or display unprofessional behavior. That being said, the other half of the employees are usually pretty professional and polite. This location also plays a lot of music that does not lend itself to a coffee shop atmosphere nor a studying or lounge-like kind of atmosphere and there are often groups of school kids [minors, not college-aged] that can get a little loud at times.
I am a regular customer as I stop in after going to my gym next door several times a week. I think their entire staff has changed and no one smiles anymore. Before everyone remembered my name and order. Today I had an unfortunate experience with their staff and pricing. As usual I ordered a small hot latte to go. When I saw how much I was charged, I asked if they had recently raised their prices. I was told yes, a few weeks ago. I think as a regular customer I would have noticed the price increase a few weeks ago since 3 days ago I paid what I usually pay $.55 less. I'm there at least twice a week. I watched the barista make a regular size latte and questioned her since I had ordered a small and was charged for a regular. She replied, "We don't advertise the small Latte." Hmmm, but you sell them, don't you? Yes, but we don't advertise them." So you think it's okay to charge me more for something I didn't order because you don't advertise it?" At this point I'm rather confused. Last week I paid $3.57 with tip and today I paid $4.18 for a small latte and yet, you've prepared a regular one, that I never ordered and didn't want. She then offers to refund me. Well that's a point in her favor. She tells me it was an "accident." When I look at the menu, the small size price has effectively disappeared.So how can a company as big as the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, get away with this kind of nonsense? Do most customers just not care or ask for an explanation? I think their entire staff has changed and no one smiles anymore. Before everyone remembered my name and order.
I always love the coffee and service here.
There is nothing better then the coffee bean. No matter what area you are in it is always the best.
This location is average, however, the reason I gave them 3-stars rating, is their rudeness. They were extremely impatient with my order, gave me attitude, and I had to pay for this poor customer service. Will not be coming back!
when you first enter, the yummy fragrance of coffee greets you- the place has indoor and outside patio seating. Wide assortment of pastries, salad and hot/cold drinks. Friendly staff- clean
I stopped by the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf a couple of times during my brief weekend in LA. It was very close to the Airbnb where my boyfriend and I were staying, and it was conveniently located among other shops in the corner of Manchester Ave and Lincoln Blvd. You really can't miss it, so it made for the perfect Lyft/Uber ride. I've seen The Coffee Bean around the Bay, specifically San Jose, but I had yet to actually try it. I ordered an ice blended white chocolate and breakfast wrap, and I thought they were just OK. For future reference I wouldn't mind going to The Coffee Bean if I didn't have any other choice. My blended drink tasted fine, but I was a bit confused as to why my white chocolate drink was covered in milk chocolate syrup. Because of all the chocolate syrup, it ended up tasting like regular mocha and that was not the flavor palette I intended on having to begin with. Perhaps the employee misunderstood me, but I didn't have time to wait for a revised order. I sucked it up and left with the drink, but I gave it away since it wasn't what I wanted. I ordered a breakfast wrap that consisted of egg, potato, and Asiago cheese. I found it in the refrigerator case where the bottled drinks were stored, so I asked the employee at the register to heat it up for me. The flavors of the breakfast wrap were also fine, but I thought the tortilla was way too soggy to enjoy. Furthermore, the paper wrapping was stuck to the soggy tortilla, which made it very difficult to peel off. There needs to be better packaging of this product. Service was not bad. The employees were efficient, and my orders came out prompty.
Conveniently located on the corner of Lincoln & Manchester, I sometimes meet clients here. Parking on the street is the only issue.
The coffee and food are great, but the customer service is excellent. Gigi and her team are willing to go the extra mile to make sure we get what we need, including special orders.
It's comical how consistently RUDE the staff is. I don't need a warm welcome but would it kill the staff to at least acknowledge customers? I've received unnecessary and unsolicited attitude EVERY visit and I'm just ordering iced coffee so one can only imagine the sort of attitude that comes with a more complicated order. There are literally two Starbucks nearby and a Bristol.
Baristas are always diligent. Great coffee makers. Quick and lots of space to sit and study.
Coffee and service is slightly better than at Starbucks, and a little more expensive.
Their tea collection is pretty darn good, the best lemon chamomile tea I've had till date. YUM!
I actually prefer the coffee here rather than Starbucks, personally. Though both are nice, I just prefer their taste. It's a wonderful place to get coffee, a snack, do work, meet up or just stop by for a drink before heading off to work. The staff usually, for most of the stores I go to, are friendly, inviting and try to get me my order as quickly as possible.
Best Chinese in CA hands down! Don't let the exterior fool you, this place is AMAZING. Great prices on lunch specials with a large amount of quality food. Try the Kung-Pow and the cheese cream wantons!
everyone at our table was glad to be there. the staff was very friendly and kind.
