Kool Benz is a local place that has maintained a high quality of food and service for many years. We have eaten here many times over the years and are still impressed each time.

Wonderful brunch menu! I really enjoyed the andouille sausage entree with the grits patty, poached eggs. A real treat. The home fry potatoes are a treat. A great place. Don’t miss it

Most everyone I know would agree that this is one of the best, most consistent restaurants in Tallahassee. Always interesting and good food. Only frustration is that they don’t take reservations
