Has-Beans Coffee and Tea Co. 620 5th Ave. Park Slope, Brooklyn
Coffee sampled: French Roast
Offerings: Coffee, tea, pastries, juices, whole bean coffee, loose teas, fresh fruit, slushys, and cool accessories.
Unique Drinks: Mexican Hot Chocolate
Interior: Laid back atmosphere. The wooden tables and chairs and the checkered floor tiles remind me of an old school diner. The warm brown and yellow tones make you feel very relaxed. The walls and shelves are filled with coffee memorabilia and you could spend a lot of time just looking around. A great place to go to study or relax without loud noise and huge crowds.
Clientele: Mixed age group.
Barista: A friendly young lady who greeted all the customers with a smile and asked how their day was.
Extras: Has Beans is also an internet cafe that offers internet access at $8.00 an hour. You can also purchase coffee and tea accessories such as French presses, coffee mugs, tea infusers, filters, and travel mugs.
Notes: Has Beans started as a local chain in San Francisco in 1976.
