It seems like the who's who of Malibu show up eventually once a day at the Coffee Bean. I have seen movie stars, sports stars, and all kinds of people. This is the un official board room of Malibu.

Great place if you walking around Malibu and want one of the drinks served by Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, the originator (locally at least) of the ice-blended mocha, which my wife and I still prefer over Starbuck's copycat drink). But, the real delight is the fact that you can take your drink outside and sit around the park area watching locals with their children at play in the little park. The area also boasts some shops worth visiting and some great places to eat lunch or dinner. If you have been walking around and are ready for a coffee or tea, ice-blended or hot, this is the place!

I liked my smoothie and it was overall pleasant. But the guy who took order seemed distracted, not interested and didn't made an eye contact or smile. But deffinately good place to cool down in the heat.

No matter which location you patronize, I think the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is better than Starbucks any day. The one in the little Brentwood mall off Sunset Bl was my first time in one many many years ago...and then they expanded all over the place. I love the one in Malibu because it feels so comfortable and fun to sit outside there. There's always a line, but they move fast.
