An eclectic place, around for a while, ticks most of the boxes for an alternate to Starbucks! Good coffee, excellent sandwiches, deserts, plus a nice list of small touches, like fresh lemon-flavoured jugs of water on hand. Try the fresh lemonade and veggie sandwiches! During our four-day stay we were repeat visitors! Nice spot to sit inside or outside.

We LOVE this place. It has a great variety of drinks for coffee lovers, and non-coffee drinkers, the atmosphere is comfortable, and they host a lot of LGBT events which is great as Charlottetown is quite small and we don't necessarily have a ton of options, it's great to get so much support from a local business.

I was in need of some seriously good coffee. If it's good coffee, I love it black. Beanz has really good and strong coffee. Not bitter at all. They also have gluten-free pastries which are always hard to find at home, and these were really good. Great place.

Beanz is a great stop if you're in Charlottetown and need a pick me up. The coffee is excellent and so are the desserts. The staff is friendly and the clientele are not snobby or hipster, it's just a very nice down to earth coffee place with lots of flyers to catch up on local events.

It is nice to see a good local coffee shop amongst a see of chains.... Enjoyed some very good cappuccino and deserts here. The sandwiches here come with nice bread....but the soups are especially tasty. Also, great to see local art (that you can purchase) on the walls... again you get the real local flavor here.

Although the price is bit high for coffee and desert, the ambiance of Beanz definitely is worth it. Food and drink here are wonderful.
