I tend to come here for an iced latte or a hot chocolate after a meal somewhere else in the souq. The beverages here are pretty good. Not exceptional, but that’s not what I am looking for when I come to a chain shop.
The shop itself is pretty small, so sometimes it is hard to find a seat during peak hours. If the weather is cool, there are a few places to sit outside. If you can get one, the people watching from the outside seats is worth the price of admission.
Again, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf doesn’t do rocket science molecular micro-brewed coffee. But no one expects that from chains like this. It’s good enough. And the location makes it a destination, after-dinner or otherwise. Recommended.
