Enjoyed the delicious coffee as well as great breakfasts. The corned beef hash with poached eggs was good and included toast and grits or potatoes. My daughter enjoyed the cinnamon roll pancakes although the icing is pretty sweet. Service was attentive. Restaurant is small, so...More

Loved the coffee and food. Very fun college atmosphere. My daughter took me here for mother daughter weekend at FSU. Nice menu selection and lots of choices for specialty coffee. Their breakfast blend was perfect. A must go for your visit with your Nole. 😄

This immensely popular spot is always crowded - with a waiting period. Indoor eating area is overwhelmingly noisy. Nothing to absorb sound. Small outdoor seating available. Food is good. Varied menu. Friendly servers. Considerable wait time for food to be delivered, once ordered. Reasonably priced.

The Bada Bean has fantastic breakfasts at fantastic prices. It is a small restaurant, so there may be a wait, but it is definitely worth it. The portion sizes are very fair, especially for the price. The pastries are to die for. Unfortunately, they stopped...More
