I want to love Ben's. But with the current owner, it is hard. I like the menu, the food is good. The owner (the guy at the cash register) is not friendly, doesn't handle requests well. (subbing turkey for beef is just not that hard) He is contentious and provides no customer experience. Is he good at coffee? Yes. This... More

This was my 2nd visit to Ben's. My first time the service was really great. This time the service was just okay. The man taking my order seemed annoyed with my questions which made me feel unwelcomed. Oh well. Anyway, my food was good. The portions were small but the taste was good. Possibly would return because it's a nice... More

Any sandwich with their lightly toasted sourdough bread is going to be great - it's the only US bread I've found that isn't sweet. This UK traveller thought the dippy do-dah sandwich was excellent - but it's not just a UK view - an American couple complimented the owner on the best sandwich they've ever had. Nice place, nice people,... More

Love the quaint location on the square in Ozark. Love the food even more. I had half of the Capone (which I'd ordered the full ... or maybe two full sandwiches) and a side of corn chowder. May be one of the best lunches my tastebuds have had the pleasure to enjoy. Also had an Americano. The owner makes his... More

Was there with a client, and the owner rudely came told me that the smell of my product was giving him a headache. This was right in front of a client I had with me.

The owner is serious about coffee and if you want great coffee in Ozark this is the only place to go! His iced coffee is carefully cold brewed and absolutely delicious

The coffee and excellent food are a delight and the lovely historic building and brilliant antiques dappled throughout make dining here an absolute pleasure. Prices are great for families or a quick, tasty and healthy lunch in a great atmosphere. Add your input to their shared table or learn a few things from locals while you dine.

Very convenient if you work on the square or are shopping around the square. I stopped in any time I get a chance. Great coffee and lattes.

A group of photographers like to meet at Bens. We choose Bens b/c it is central location to some driving as far as near Arkansas. The last two times, I brought along my toddler to this group meeting. It is apparent that this is not a kid friendly place and the owner was snippy and rude to me both times.... More

The variety and quality of the sandwich/salad choices is quite good. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff, and the atmosphere of this coffee shop are first rate.
