I love their cakes! Every time I have a special occasion I buy the chocolate cake they make. I also love the passion fruit cake. And if you feel to treat yourself they have almost the same flavors in small size.

The desserts are to die for. Just a great place to get dessert or order for pick up. The staff are very kind and the small cafe is nice to come to and have coffee and a little dessert.

We stopped in for dessert on a Thursday afternoon. The display case was filled with small pastries that had amazing decorative detail. We ordered six different tiny treats from a bite sized éclair to a mini tart. They were ALL wonderful. We will definitely return!

Cocoa Bean has the best croissants in the entire Chicagoland area! Their delightfully decorated small cakes and pastries DO taste as good as they look. These guys know what they are doing; you will not be disappointed.
