    The humus salad was perfect for a quick lunch/snack. The hazelnut soy latte was perfect ! Also I tried the egg salad but instead of bread as sandwich I asked for pita bread which came warm! Yummy

    Stopped in for lunch and wasn't disappointed! The FRESHEST and most delicious food. Had the hummus plate which was enough to share. Also had the apple salad. So plentiful.

    Great coffee, good food, killer deserts. Staff folk are wonderful. Bring a book or have a conversation, if you can't live without web, go elsewhere.

    Ice cream is great! It has nice texture and consistency: not rock hard and not too melty.

    Old fashioned cobbler cream soda is FANTASTIC! But the staff is very friendly and will recommend something great :-)

    Despite all the ppl hating on the lack of wife, this is my favorite place in the whole wide world. They roast their own coffee, the ppl are friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. Great local coffee shop

    So many good memories for me here that it's hard for me to separate if it's good or not. Nostalgia just takes over...1st place ever to have a chai tea latte decades ago.

    Coffee and service excellent. Very disappointing that there is no Internet service, however.

    The snickers coffee was its own desert. With whipped cream, caramel, chocolate and peanut butter.

    No wifi! 4G and 3G signals are non-existent inside, and they do not offer wifi! When asked why, they said that the owner didn't want wifi. So much for what the customer wants.

    Actually, Bean Hollow is ridiculous in that they are the only cafe on the planet that doesn't maintain it's own wifi. Coupled with overpriced knickknacks, it's not the best. But the soups are good.

    Typical coffee shop in a historical town with rip off prices. These places are for yuppies & fake hippies

    You can make an iced chai but can't make a chai frappe? Dumb...

    the wifi here goes between really freaking horrible and non-existent. if you need to get some work done, go someplace else.

    Evidently there is a "no computers" policy on the weekend so if you came here to chill and write, prepare to be kicked out. Lame.
