where everybody knows your name--Dr.Beanz Drive Thru

Original post made by Joe on May 11, 2009

I can not believe how amazing the service and the coffee is at Dr. Beanz Coffee Bar. The young girl that works there in the morning is so friendly and makes a rockin cup of joe. I pull up and the staff knows my name and my drink and I get 2 drinks free for every 10 I buy. It feels so good to spend my money on good old fashion independent businesses. Thanks Dr. Beanz.

Where is this place? I'd love to support an independent and I love my coffee.

I agree, I love Dr. Beanz too! It is in the shopping center on the corner of Valley and Santa Rita, across Valley from Safeway.

I love Dr. Beanz, too! I especially like "Taylor" who works there. He remembers my name, remembers my drink, and is always nice and friendly. The drinks are good, it's quick, and the prices are reasonable. They have good smoothies, too. It's definitely a place to try!!!!!

Didn't that used to be a Caffino?

Yes, it used to be Caffino. I think it changed ownership awhile back. It's a great drive-thru place - you gotta try it!!!

Oh wait a minute, no, it wasn't a Caffino. It was a Mika's. Sorry about that! But yes, it changed ownership and now it's Dr. Beanz.

Caffino is and always was in the Trader Joe's little shopping center at Santa Rita at I580. The thing next to Jack-In-The-Box on Valley at Santa Rita is/was always something else.

Try the folks at Caffino- they are super friendly and the product is GOOD.

Dr. Beanz is the best keep secret in Pleasanton that everyone drives by!

I too have my drink ready for me when I pull up to the window, even though I'm only there about once a week!

Friendly, quick, and better than any chain around.

Try 'em out!

What a treat it is to actually have your drink made by someone who cares about your business. The kid "Taylor" is the owners son. He is there everyday with a smile and a consistent yummy cup of coffee. He knows my name my drink and remembers many things. I agree Dr. Beanz should no longer be a secret but be a place everyone must go. Thank you for your on-going wonderful service. It really feels good knowing my hard earn dollar goes to such a wonderful family business. I also know that the owner works everyday open to close in the Dr. Beanz in Dublin...what dedication!! I will always be your number one fan:)
