The location is very good. The food is good, although I would not define it exceptional. Great salads. Attentive service. The menu offers really a lot of choices. The value for money is good.

We had an expensive dinner here last night, and we were disappointed by the fact that the disappointing food was not worth the big bucks. First, my water smelled bad. I honestly don't know if it was my cup, or if the smell is normal for the water in the area, or if there was something wrong with the water... More

The Bean Bar is a coffee house in trendy Westdale. It seems to be popular with the university students. The menu is pretty much upscale coffee shop. They have some interesting entrees as well as the usual sandwiches. All ok to very, but none really warrant the prices. The desserts are another story. While again pricey, they range from merely...

We ordered a salad first followed by moules frites as a second course. Our second course arrived two bites into the salad. (We were told no matter what, the next course comes 7mins after the first course is prepared.) The waitress rolled her eyes when we said we were not ready for it, as they would get cold while we...

I m not too sure how a student would be able to afford this menu. Average meal is about $14-$20. Its not the best quality food for the price they list on their menu. Heres what we ordered and the reviews: *Steak with potato & veg: steak was dried out, did not look like a $25 steak, which you pay... More

I wanted to go somewhere great tonight with my kids - but there is no kids' menu and the portion sizes are skimpy especially for the price - while the food is tasty, the service wasn't great and seriously, 7 pieces of pasta for $14!

Been here several time with our Mac student over the last 4 years. The style is very student friendly and convent. It has been consistently good. My favourite is the T burger and sweet potato fries. The vegan chill is also good. My wife had all the salads which are large and fresh. There is a great desert display, with... More

Went to the Bean Bar last week with a group of friends. We each ordered completely different meals but everyone enjoyed them immensely. The service was quite good, very friendly. The overall atmospher was very enjoyable. Cozy and fun to just hang out. Highly recommend this place in Westdale area.

How are they still open? Busy place but service was laughable, server was dirty with food, forgot several items and food was not fresh. Place is worn except chairs were new. No appeal, and not cheap. For that price I should have went to place next store 1010 Bistro.
