This place looks amazing and I’m sure they do some great drinks. Just didn’t have a good first experience. I ordered a latte and the milk curdled. Just had a much higher expectation for this place.

Great new local cafe and bar at night. Friendly service!

Fairly large space for an inviting cafe. Feels equally right to order a drink with caffeine or alcohol. Music is always on point and staff always make you feel welcome and stay attentive..getting you refills and offering other items or just having good conversation. It's a great spot to meet people and bring friends.

Such a great spot! Very welcoming and friendly staff. Great place to hangout for a few hours or get a quick coffee. If I'm in the area again, would absolutely stop back in there again.

Warm, welcoming and lively coffee/bar spot in Harlem. During the day, you’ll find people working or taking casual meetings and at night it turns into quite a scene with drinking, dancing and an an epic playlist. So happy Bean & Barley is now a neighborhood staple!

I really enjoyed the bar . It was my first time coming to this bar and I loved everything about it . The bartender was very good and the cozy environment was amazing. It is a good place to go out for happy hour or girls night out and even is perfect for a date.

Nice staff, good snacks. A nice place to work if you need a co-working space. Coffee was good. The milkshake machine is broken, but the barista was hoping they'd have it fixed by summer.

Bean & Barley is great coffee shop in Harlem where you can comfortably work or socialize. If you need to study or write essays, you can come to Bean & Barley with little distraction. Additionally, if you want to grab a quick drink with a friend or do a coffee chat, B&B is perfect for this! The small sandwiches are great to snack on while working or socializing and the staff is great. Lastly, the music playlist can please everyone! It is truly epic.

Best bar in Harlem. Love love love.

This is such an oddball place and I love it. Lol coffee and working on laptop during the day, socializing with cocktails at night. I think the bar is technically open all day, but I'm a lightweight so no booze for me but you live your life.... responsibly. Music is good and so is vibe

This really is the perfect space to sit and write or talk with friends. It has warm, cozy atmosphere and the coffee choices are abundant. You can also sip an alcoholic drink while you work on your computer. The staff is warm and inviting, as is the space. They also offer CBD coffee which is an interesting experience.

Best place in the neighborhood for coffee in the daytime and for drinks at happy hour/evening time. The staff is all great. Haley, Madison, Josh, Chris, and Yann are especially welcoming and gracious. Great place to work and cool hang with friends.

I love their coffee here. Cold brew is nice and smooth. I also tried some of their sandwiches. They tasted fine, but nothing to write home about. Wifi speed is fast and the tables are large. So if you plan to meet with people here to get some work done, its not too bad. Although, if you're here at night, it is on the dim side.

Bean and barley is a cool neighborhood work/chill spot. They have a variety of seating arrangements (couches, short tables, bar seating, tall tables) and decent espresso. I’ve only been in the morning/early afternoon but the vibe is pretty relaxed. The music isn’t too loud, so you can still have a conversation. It’s a little bit on the dim side but I’ve still been able to read books without any issues. Haven’t used the WiFi much but so far it seems to be reliable.
Bonus points for having two clean bathrooms and really friendly baristas!

I'm constantly on the search for a coffee shop in this area to sit and grade papers or lesson plans. Unfortunately, some of my favorite places (like Double Dutch) are perennially crowded. I've been to this place twice and because it is quite spacious, I've had a place to sit both times. It has a cozy yet festive atmosphere, and a just-versatile-enough menu. I haven't tried the food yet, so I can't comment on that, though it does seem more reasonably priced than the food of other coffee shops around. I have had their decaf americano and their house white wine ($5) during happy hour and have enjoyed both.

Great cool vibe. Some bar staff has awesome musical taste - from disco to electronic dance to old school rap. It smoothly transitions from a coffee house during the day to a happy hour spot as evening arrives. Lots of design and tech folks hustling their latest gig or startup over craft drinks. Note to parents: this is NOT a kid-appropriate location. This is an adult bar/coffee house. There isn't space for strollers and the kids drive away other patrons. Unfortunately, the pastries here really suck. Owner may want to provide some guidance because when the music is own point - this place jams and gets crowded. When the music is off, it empties out.

Great coffee. Great happy hour drinks. Staff is super nice. Nice laid back atmosphere with a comfy couch section near the back. This place gives me life on my way to work in the morning. Def. worth a check if you're in the area.

Do yourself a favor and NEVER order a chai latte from here. It was literally steamed milk with a hint of cinnamon. BnB, please change your chai tea supplier. I threw my cup away after 4 sips. What a waste!

Go-to spot to work for an hour or so and have a coffee. Super chill, plenty of space, lines are not long, coffee is good and staff is great. Added bonus- the two guys who usually work are always killing it with the music. I have enough Shazams from here for an entire playlist. 10/10

Great spot for coffee and quick eats. Been here 3x and the staff is super friendly and helpful. The coffee is reasonably priced (and delicious) and the food is great, too. Definitely plan on coming back for their happy hour specials. They have an ample space for studying, getting work done, or hanging out with friends.

Great service cool people and great vibes. My first time there was for happy hour and it was a cool chill vibe. Then my second time I went during the day to work and it has ample space comfortable atmosphere and great atmosphere

This place is perfect in every way.. my fiancé and I randomly stopped in as we were passing by. We weren't in a coffee mood so wanted to try the teas instead. We tried the passion tea and worked for about an hour on our laptops. Great music, great WiFi and really good tea! It was also a super bonus that they have a full bar.. Which is super awesome, well definitely come back for happy hour!

This place is the perfect place to grab a cup of coffee and meet up with friends for a bit or find a quiet place to study. Friendly staff and good coffee make this place a go to in the area especially since they have more seating than many other coffeeshops near by.
