Healthy, Good-for-you food

Tasty sprout sandwiches - but the price is higher then what I would expect. Definitely a nice healthy alternative to fast food. Sneaky parking available in the back if you didn't want to park on Algoma.

We were shopping in the area and stopped in for lunch. We were not disappointed. Turkey Panini was excellent. Everything was fresh and had great flavor. Coffee was perfect. They even made a London Fog tea perfectly. Overall a great experience!

First time here, on the advice of a TBay resident....a wonderful choice to meet up for a coffee and light lunch. Five of us, including two kids...everybody happy with their meals and drinks. The room is eclectic, attractively furnished. The little patio out the back might have been nice on a sunnier day but seemed coolish and needs a little... More

Want a quick bite and a great cup of tea when you are wandering around the boutiques in Algoma/Bay area? Delish sammies, savoury soups, quirky atmosphere and fun wait staff! Excellent spot to meet up with a friend or hang out by yourself, because sooner or later someone will happen by to join you. Love it!

This is a neat addition to the Bay and Algoma boutique area. You don't really know there is a patio until after you are seated inside, and on a nice day it would be a welcome change. Parking in the area is limited and metered which is a major negative to relaxed dining and shopping in the area. There is... More

The Bean Fiend looks cool but their hours of operation suck. Like most places in Thunder Bay, they close early so those who work during the day do not have the opportunity to frequent the place. To make it even worse, if you decided to spend your money on food, they stop serving food one hour in advance of their... More
