The bean side of the business is average at best, but I have historically enjoyed some of the best leaves (tea, I suppose) here at the Bean and Leaf.

Bean & Leaf had a lot of promise but the coffee was just OK. I'm not a coffee snob but the flavor was basic and that's what I always order, basic/regular coffee. The selection of breakfast treats: muffins, cookies was less then desirable and we were there mid-late morning. The atmosphere is fun and casual and no one ordered a... More

The Bean and Leaf Cafe is right on the corner in Downtown Rochester. The service is usually very fast and the employees are very friendly.

I find it difficult to stand out as a coffee house at this point in time. What I can say about the Bean and Leaf is they do in fact stand out. The coffee is excellent. The service is high-level and in line with most any good coffee house. The location appears to be optimum, but parking in Rochester takes... More

Freindly staff, fast internet, great daylight windows. Oh yeah, they have coffee which is fine. Lots of tea choices. New fresher muffins. I recommend the French Vietnamese, ask for it a little extra sweet.

The staff is really knowledgeable and friendly. The tea was excellent. The cappuccino was great as well. It's nice to sit along the window sipping a nice hot tea or coffee in a warm mug with friends or family here. Great local gem for downtown Rochester.
