One of the cutest most unique cafe's in town!
If you are looking for a great place to go read, study, meet a friend to catch up, breakfast, or lunch, Romancing the Bean is one of my all-time Fave's! I have been going there for years since they were located on Indian Bend and although I was sad about the location change and the hours, I go every time I have a day off and can make it during business hours.

As for the comments above about the service- it is somewhat slow, but be sure to ask for things ahead of time and you should be fine- also it is a cafe, not fine-dining, so service will naturally be more relaxed. If I am there on a time-crunch I ask for the bill ahead of time and politely let them know I will need to check out promptly.
Also a great place to sip some gooood coffee, particularly their mochas, and their baked croissiant sandwiches and salads are sooo yummy! I also recommend any of their baked goods. The news is usually on too so you can catch up on the headlines.
LOVE YOU Bean!!!
