Coffee is the gathering place, it IS community. Those are the words that owner Scott Corley said to me when I asked him why a coffee shop in Fishhawk. He is 100% right. Coffee (or tea, beer, wine, food), these are the makings for a great meeting place, a place with a sense of community. Being in the heart of the Fishhawk community allows it easy access for teens on their bikes looking for a frozen coffee treat (or some gelato) afterschool, to meet up with friends to work on homework. For Moms to hang out after dropping their kids at school or business owners in the area needing that perfect meeting spot. The atmosphere is easy and relaxed. No hustle and bustle here and the food is so darn tasty!
Building a sense of community is the main goal of Cool Beans! Hosting live music nights on the weekends, giving parents a chance to relax while watching their kids play in park square (yes those fountains will be done soon they assure me!). Families can often be seen playing board games on dreary, rainy days. Their event calendar is full of family-friendly events, events for parents night out and causes that give back to the community. All tips in the tip jar are donated to Seeds of Hope, a local charity with the mission to provide help to people in need and meaningful community service hours for students.
So yes, community is a huge part of Cool Beans and their philosophy, so is really great coffee. While coffee is the main event, they have fabulous tea, delish food for breakfast, lunch, dinner or an evening snack. The gelato is to die for and they serve wine and beer! Heavenly Creations stocks the case with their famous chocolate covered goodies like oreos and marshmallows! Add in some french macaroons and I could just live there!
Cool Beans is located in the center of Fishhawk Ranch community. It is an easy bike ride for anyone living in the surrounding neighborhoods plus a short drive for those living outside the community. Their online ordering makes it easy to stop by on your way to work and grab your favorite drink togo. Their speciality drinks like the Coco Loco sets them apart from the big chain guys (not to mention taste!). The owner Scott, is a self proclaimed coffee junky who prides himself on top of the line equipment, water filtration system and the best beans around. The seating is plentiful whether it is just you and your laptop or a large group. Need a community room to host a club or teach a class? They have that covered as well!
