Everything's awesome! I highly recommend the Chai Tea Latte, it is the best I've ever had! Muffins and scones are delicious! Prices are great, and on par for a specialty coffee/ice cream shop.

My daughter and I had breakfast here the other morning. I ordered a hazelnut latte, blueberry muffin, and a banana bar. Everything I ate was excellent! The only barely negative thing id say is the atm...osphere isn't very cozy. I wasn't sure if I was at the right place from looking at the outside and on the inside they had art pieces scattered throughout (which is cool) but it needs some oomf to it, make it more inviting.

Anything I, or my family, eat/drink is delicious and top notch! Service is always friendly and quick. The owner is all about customer service and her employees stand behind her attitude. I continuousl...y rave about the Dairy Bean to everyone. It's always a treat when purchasing from here! YUM! See More

Just came through for some coffee and breakfast sandwiches. The coffee is delicious as always but these breakfast sandwiches... man, I'm not sure I've ever had a better breakfast sandwich in my life. ...I could have had 6. Service is always friendly and quick. I have nothing bad to say about this place. See More

I had a meeting for work and needed 48 scones and coffee for my employees. I inquired about this to the owner Dawn and she's said it wouldn't be a problem. Then I explained to her that my meeting was 5:30 am. Again she said no problem and that I could pick everything up at 5 am. I figured that the scones would be made the night before but I was wrong! Dawn made them fresh for me that morning and individually wrapped them all! I was amazed at the effort that she put into to my order. All of my employees loved the scones and the coffee! I will definitely be purchasing from The Dairy Bean again for my next meeting!! Thank you Dawn! See More

Everything here is good!!
*I stopped by for coffee and mentioned I wanted to try a particular soup...I work 12 hour shifts and can only make it in on certain days...and the owner went as far as tellin...g me she would making it the following week, on a day that I was off to be sure I could come in and try it. Now that's what I call customer service!! Thank you so much for caring about your customers, keep up the good work! BTW, it was cream of chicken rice, and it was delicious! See More

Myself and two other moms met here this morning with our children and the blueberry muffin was so so good! Our children began to get antsy and the lady that was working did not get upset about our ch...ildren just running back and forth when no customers were in there!! Thank you so much for having an amazing coffee place!! See More

A friend of a friend referral.So worth it. I do Not like the smell of coffee, I prefer tea. Pleasantly surprised that for a coffee spot I was able to eat Ice cream and not feel like I was eating coffe...e. Very accommodating. Hard cherry malt was awesome. Basically ordered hard/thick so it would make the hot trip into CWL to get it home. My thanks. Next time we may try the ice cream sandwich with the flavor of the day. And yes... they sell it by the pint/ get your fix on!! See More

If you have not tried their muffins, you are missing out! My husband and I had them last weekend at the Farmer's/Vendor market and that was our lunch! Best blueberry muffin I've had.

Super friendly people. Very good custard and ice cream. They heard my son ask me for a specific flavor and they made it for him. I'll be stopping by in the morning to try their coffee.

Too expensive, no lights on the drive thru board. Maybe they can take some of their profit and purchase a few lightbulbs.

Great service and treats! I love having somewhere local to stop on my way to work.

It is with great sadness that I must announce that The Dairy Bean will be closing for good on Wednesday March 7th. My family and I have put so much into this business that it truly breaks my heart. I'm so grateful for all the friendships I've made along the way and for my employees who worked so hard for me and this business (Love you Angie Loeding and Natalie Marie). I can't tell you how much of a pleasure it's been to serve all of you. We will be open today (Saturday) until 4 pm, tomorrow Sunday 8 am - 4 pm, Monday 6 am - 12 pm and Tuesday and Wednesday 6 am until probably 12 pm. We have buy one get one free on all prepacked pints and quarts as well as gallons of Vanilla custard for $25 each. Please come out and support us one last time before we close for good.

It's getting pretty cozy in here....
There's a pony here!!!
Come check out today's market!
