When you need some caffeine and something sweet go to the Human Bean. Cool, independent and right on King Street.

I've been here several times for coffee. It's a small coffee shop and tends to draw in customers who use the wifi. No complaints about coffee or food, however, customer service is lacking.

I was passing through and needed some caffeine so I stopped in here for an Americano. It is the kind of place where I could easily sit and just let time pass by. The Americano had a good strong roast to it. A lovely cup...More

The food was delicious and the coffee leaves you wanting more. They have a variety of different drinks, some sweet and some bitter. I'd almost have to say, The Human Bean is as good as Starbucks. Not to mention the aesthetically pleasing and Instagram-worthy atmosphere...More

You can't get great espresso just anywhere. You can here, and really tempting sandwiches and desserts too! I'm sure there is more I didn't try or see, but everything I had exceeded expectation.

We found a really good selection of rich cakes and other desserts. The Dutch-style apple pie was delicious. As well they serve a variety of specilty teas and coffees, as well as smoothies.

Perfect little hole in the wall gathering place! Free WIFI Delicious homemade cream cheeses and fresh bagels. The most decadent cake EVER!! Personally fav is their Chai Latte. Very popular and for good reason!

We like espresso. This place has espresso. And it's good. The vibe is very down to earth, there are groups of people who are obviously regulars, gathered around tables, enjoying good coffee and company.

Really nice place, has character, nice staff, and dynamite coffee. It's been a long time since I've had an espresso that good!

Always an experience coming here. They remember your favourites, and question when you change it up. Their patio area is a great place with the sun shining and the breeze cooling you down. Great place to meet up with old friends or even new ones....More
