Urban Bean is consistent. They have great coffee, fresh cream (a personal requirement), and they play good music but not too loud. The people behind the counter are frindly and cool and if you are a regular they remember what you came in for. There...More

With intense focus on perfection in terms of temperature, process and quality, Urban Bean makes the best coffee in Minneapolis. Baristas aren't regular baristas - they're trained assassins.

I read the other reviews and not sure I agree with much except that it's expensive. I thought the atmosphere was fine. it's stark but I think that's what they were going for and I've been in far worse. It is on the corner and...More
