Stopped in this clean and lovely shop 3 times in a week and each visit was a delight. The staff is especially friendly and patient, even the shop is crowded. Delicious coffee drinks well made. And liquid sugar sweetener, a favorite.

We stopped here for breakfast before we left Goleta. We enjoy Coffee Bean, and were happy to find one close to our hotel. The staff was very friendly, and the the coffee, tea and food items were up to par.

When back home, we go to our local CB&TL every weekend and it is a nice shop, but the one in Goleta is off the chart nice. Very clean, very nice staff and the shop is very well located for easy parking and access. Try the cranberry breakfast bar... Outstanding treat.

The staff were efficient and asked good questions to make sure they got the order correct. (They will re-make it if you don't like your drink). Surprisingly the line and the order wait were quick. I usually stop in... More

We are in SB for a few days to visit family and discovered this shop right down the street. The coffee is amazing! The staff was great everyday, but today off the charts. They have a coffee machine that they sell and demonstrate. Today is wasn't as busy as usual so I asked Sean (manager today) for a demonstration and... More
