Let me start by saying that they’re super overpriced and the attitude of their staff sucks. I have been to Bean in Love on many occasions and they never fail to put me in a bad mood. Their food is average and way overpriced. Their staff has an attitude each time I go there. I even witness their attitude with other tables so I know it’s not just me. The manager has a HUGE chip on his shoulder and seems to think he’s doing the customer a favour when you ask for a table. Terrible service when my sister had her birthday brunch there, the one waitress gave us a dirty look and rolled her eyes when we asked for a knife to cut her cake. Waiting for the day they close down.

First time visiting Bean in Love, always caught my eye when we pass by. I am a coffee snob and the name attracted me. First impressions were good, very unique design inside, with second-floor seating as well. Clean bathrooms made me very happy. The aircon was a blessing in disguise after our hot cycling ride. Wow, whatever you do order that Cornflakes French Toast, you won't be disappointed! The coffee is also a must-have.

A courteous request of “Can I please have a skinny cappuccino?” was met with a contemptuous “We don’t do skinny”.

We stopped hereby accident for a quick coffee, but after ordering we notice the cheese cake and order a portion.
This is one of the best cheese cakes we ever tried. Words can't do justice to this masterpiece.
The ambiance is great and the service excellent, there is nothing wrong with the coffee.
