Cool Beans has some unique menu items. The execution is not so excellent, but nothing is terrible either. I'd say if you are looking for something a little different in Tallahassee, then give this place a shot.

Always request artsy friends to have my birthday celebration here. Local owned, always have a delightful selection of choices for lunch. Inside has local artwork displayed. In fact the restaurant sponsored monetary prizes for an Art competition named "Yum" at our City Hall this year!

Relaxed, informal dining with very good food. The margaritas are very tasty, and the service is great.
