Found myself in Charlottetown 3 times this week...and visited Beanz for lunch each time...its habit forming! The staff is so friendly and the many gluten free options are all delicious! Now with the patio open and the new "cup of sunshine" drink available I think summer is actually here!

Had a coffee here and utilized the wifi offered. This spot is pretty bare, not very cozy for a drink or lunch. Probably would go to Starbucks up the street next time. Can't say anything about the food as I didn't try anything on the menu.

We hope you will give us another try next time you are in the city. Our walls are filled with art by very talented Island artists , we offer a variety of brewed... More

My wife found this little cafe in C ' Town last year gallivanting around while I cut grass, cleared snow, built stuff around the house. In the last few weeks we have been to the BIG CITY of Charlottetown every Wednesday and a few times in between and its' become my new little funky, friendly and fave coffee shop. Trevor... More

Excellent coffee, very good breakfast choices, always friendly service, and a nice little outdoor terrace in the summer. Beanz is centrally located for locals and travellers alike. We always have stopped here on our numerous visits to Charlottetown.

Best little coffee, brunch, lunch, intermediate eatery in downtown when you are in a rush or if you just want to relax while shopping or have a quick business exchange.

Great coffee, sandwiches and treats. Their Caesar salad is one of the best I've ever had and I always enjoy trying the different squares they offer. Environment is nice and fairly private. There is a nice deck you can sit on during the summer months.

Whenever I've gone to Beanz (often), I've never been disappointed. The food is tasty and drinks are lovely and the servers are friendly. Portions are an excellent size and the prices are right. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available too. The sweets display will make you feel like a kid in a candy shop! Oh my!!! I have an uncle... More

My friend mentioned that there was a salad special so we both ordered it as a supper meal. (9.99 each) I think it was advertised to be like a Greek salad, only better but I cannot recall the name. You get a basic Greek salad with the black olives and feta cheese but it is served with hummus on the... More

Glad you loved the salad. We are still trying to come up with a name for it but for now we call it "The Super Salad" It has become one of the most popular items we serve ... Tasty AND healthy. Thanks for taking the time to write a review! Always nice to hear from happy customers! More

I once made the mistake of turning around and going to Subway because the line was longer than usual. That was silly and I certainly regretted it. I always get a soup and sandwich combo and I'm never disappointed. Once they forgot my carrot and pickle, so I let them know the next time I was there and they gave... More
