We were lucky enough to try this restaurant on an FSU game night-which meant we were seated right away with no wait. Relaxed funky atmosphere with art pieces hung everywhere. Food was absolutely perfect. Presentation, flavor, originality-all there! I had scallops, which were large and tender. My husband had a spicy pork dish. Even out gator tail appetizer was done...

Kool Beanz is in many ways Tallahassee, not too chic, not too fancy, but just tasty enough and creative enough to impress. The food is outstandingly fresh and moist, and the service warm and friendly.

Good food, nice wines (Malbec & Macon villages especially) in a unique setting. My wife had rainbow trout; I enjoyed peppered flank steak): both really good just too much! Should have shared. Wedge salad was excellent!

We went here with our son, a student at FSU because he had heard so many great things about the restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The menu changes each day, so you are seated, not knowing what exactly will be served. On the Saturday night we visited, the restaurant was packed and there was a decent wait, so we... More

Using Trip Advisor to choose our lunch stop, we tried Kool Beanz Cafe and were not disappointed. Service was good and while the wait for our food was a bit long, it was worth it. They have an interesting menu with some creative twists. Our Shrimp & Pasta dish and the Pork Belly Rueben were terrific.

Food is great and personnel is very attentive. I've attended a business dinner and forgot the receipt - they were so nice to text me a copy when I got back to my home town.

This is one of my local favorites! I always want to try everything on the menu. Service is wonderful and friendly. We sat in the outside area for the first time because the weather was nice and it was such a great atmosphere.

After a long business trip I told the person that I was meeting for lunch that he had to make certain to choose a great place for us to eat. The challenge was extended and it was more than met. This café has exceptional food with a very wide variety of tastes, eclectic mixes and prep of dishes offered. The... More
