Atmosphere: 3.8/5 Mountain Bean Coffee offers a pretty unique vibe. Sort of an “in-a-cabin-by-the-fire” feel. There’s a lot of wood slatting, dim lighting, and even a fireplace (truly). Music is played in the shop, so keep this in mind if you’re thinking about studying there.
Menu: 3/5 MBC offers drinks and some sandwiches/sweets (pastries, croissants). On the downside, the menu is pretty limited. It includes: “Build Your Own” smoothies ($4.99), flavoured lattes ($3.50), and Blend’r smoothies ($7.99). One smoothie was listed as containing banana, spinach, dates, cacao powder, avocado, almond milk, and protein powder. Intense, right?
The Verdict: casually recommended For the friendliness of the service, the warmth of the atmosphere, and the solid offerings, I’d go to Mountain Bean Coffee again.
