The service is always cheerful and way fast, and I love their coffee-free vanilla drink. Great bakery items too.

This my favorite Coffee Bean #182. The baristas are so friendly & pleasant. Drinks are exactly as requested and prepared with a smile and polite "thank you for coming in". And a big, big plus is their always clean & fresh bathrooms👍🏻👍🏻. Love it!!

We met here with old friends from California. The restaurant was quiet, and the coffee was very good. We will be meeting here again.

This is my favorite coffee. They have been serving coffee at CBTL, long before Starbucks hit town. They staff all of their location except for LAX with some great people.

This particular store has the friendliest service and very fast and efficient. They remember you name, order and give you many tips on other products they provide.

Very busy location, but service is always good. Standard coffee and tea offerings. For something different, try the Hot Vanilla. Surprisingly yummy.

I liked Coffee Bean and this one is located right next to the highway. I got my boost and then got onto the highway for my long drive. The staff was very nice and service was quick. My only issue was that my pastry was a bit stale.

I love a good Iced Mocha. Which is why I don't get them here very often. I always order a blended I.M and they ALWAYS over blend it to the point where the drink tastes more like a water with flavor added. I only go in when I'm really desperate for a drink. And the one time I ordered a... More

A closure of the nearby Starbucks due to renovations found me without a breakfast spot on morning during a business trip to Torrance. Fortunately, I spied this cafe just across the street and popped in for a bun and an espresso. The friendly staff was very quick to serve up my order on a proper dishes (no bun-in-a-bag here) with...
