Wandering towards downtown I looked at the clock and decided to stop for an early lunch at one of Tallahassee’s best lunch spots, Kool Beanz Cafe. The beloved and much lauded restaurants is located in a low slung light olive colored building at 921 Thomasville Road. Parking at Kool Beanz can be a challenge, and by the time I arrived the lot was packed. Additional parking is available on Williams Street, which is adjacent to the restaurant, and I found a spot without any trouble. A large coloeful sign stood above the front door, and upon entering I was warmly greeted by the hostess.
There were no tables or booths available inside, and I requested a place at the counter. It is my favorite place to sit because I get to watch the kitchen in action. From my vantage point I watched the cooks assembled plates and send them out to patrons sitting at the packed booths and tables. It was interesting to see them cook different items with both skill and speed. For more on Kool Beanz read the full review on Tallahassee.com.
