Better to be at BEANZ

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.

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

I went here on my lunch break one day and ordered the special which was Shepherd's Pie. The Shepherd's Pie was cold so I brought it back. When I finally got it back after about 10 minutes, it was still cold. I will never go back.

I grabbed a cup of coffee here. It was very nice coffee and the service was friendly. If you like quality beans, you'll do well here.

Spoilt for choice in this part if town but came here twice. Great to be able to sit out and away from the street. Very popular.

Beanz is the kind of comfortable familiar feeling locale that is perfect for lunch. The menu is varied and offers many fresh and delicious options. Great value and delivered with style. Highly recommended.
