    Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf: Famous at Southwest!

    Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is A Chic place to Hang Out and is really popular in the Southern California Area especially here in Los Angeles but like Seattle's best Coffee then, it's popularity is limited and is mostly located in the southwestern US (California, Nevada, Arizona) but has growing popularity worldwide especially in asia. This place is more popular than Starbucks here in LA! The company was founded by Mona and Herbert Hyman. It is one of the oldest and largest privately held chain of specialty coffee and tea stores. The first store opened in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood in 1963. Coffee Bean stores differ from other coffee chains such as Starbucks with their broad selection of tea drinks. It also popularized The Original Ice Blended drinks and Chai Lattes.

    Favorite Dish: the dulce de leche! it is just awesome, also the assorted Chai Lattes! their cakes and desserts are also awesome!

    inside buy awesome!

    This was the nearest coffee shop to my friends apartment...had a great little outside seating area where you could peoplewatch. I love a big mug of strong coffee in the the staff were way surprised at my 'quadruple expresso'! But they got used to me!
    Great little place!

    Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf: The best ice blended on Earth!!

    The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has amazing coffee. Ask native Los Angelenos to compare it to Starbucks and they'll scoff. CB&TL is far superior. There are locations all over the city. Order an ice blended (mocha is the most popular flavor), grab a seat and enjoy.
