I've been here before and the coffee is excellent, pricier than coffee in its sister store down the hill in Bishop, but still excellent. They aren't very generous with the whipped cream though. Looney bean coffee beats Starbucks hands down on any day. Their pastries are also tasty, though I did not indulge today.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I spent a few days in Mammoth Lakes recently, and we always enjoy trying out new coffee places. Thanks to TA we gave Looney Bean a try. It's a funky place - a bit dark, a few tables, and a couple of very comfortable easy chairs by the fireplace. Bonus points for... More

Ordered two hot teas. Waited for them 30min. If you want to drink coffee here make sure you are not in rush and you have plenty of time.

This local favorite is still one of the coolest coffee shops I have ever been in. The baristas are always fantastic and fit the shops environment perfectly. They have a ton of options to choose from and a good amount of comfy seating to relax in and enjoy the free wifi. Oh yeah, and the coffee is awesome!

Just what a cafe should be, great coffee, great service, lovely home baking and unlimited wifi. Couldn't believe the amount of people going in there to use the wifi and not purchasing ANYTHING, damn cheek if you ask me, staff should not allow it! Went in over a few different days and the crowds were made up of different people... More

best ice coffee ever. I ordered some beans they were phenomenal so I am ordering some on line. The coffee is a very distinctive flavor and strong enough to hold up to cream. It was very cute and clean inside. If you are traveling it is a real experience. I think it was my favorite thing I did up in... More

Really like their locally roasted beans. Has a good vibe. Their hot chocolate is yummy, and Velvet Elvis offers plenty of "Uh-Huh" on hot days.
