To start off the morning today, we went to a coffee shop called, Ben’s Beans. If you are looking for a quick grab and go or a place that specializes in all sorts of coffee Ben’s Beans if definitely fro you. However, if you are not a fan of coffee they offer a few different types of teas. While their coffee was delicious if you are not a hard core coffee drinker Ben’s Beans might not be for you. With the small size of the cafe it gave off a cozy feel that would be great for grabbing coffee with friends or doing some intense studying! Visit their website here!
Yasmeen’s Order: Today I ordered a Dirty Chai and chocolate chip cookie. The Dirty Chai was just like any other normal chai tea, but there was coffee in this drink. If you ever needed that extra kick in the morning this would be a good drink to get, but if you are not a coffee person they also had normal chai teas. The chocolate chip cookie was pretty big, but was still delicious. There weren’t too many pastries here because you can tell it was more about the coffee. So, if you don’t mind not having a pastry with your coffee this is a good place to go.
Meghan’s Order: To start off, I decided to order an iced caramel latte and let me just say if you need a kick start Ben’s Beans is definitely for you. Their coffee tastes fresh and gives you the caffeine boost you need to get through your early morning. There was a ton of different coffee roasts, flavors, specialties, and more that you could choose from, but if you are not a coffee drinker I would try somewhere else. I would highly recommend Ben’s Beans if you need a pick me up, are a coffee fanatic, or want to grab a quick cup of coffee. I was very impressed with the fact that there was only one person working and she got everything done quickly, but with quality.
