Artists haven

What a quaint little restaurant and hangout for the artists in the area. If you are looking for a healthy place to eat and a great place to meet one of your artist friends for a coffee this is perfect!

I must have walked past the restaurant a few times before realizing that it was downstairs. Walking in was an experience that a lot of restaurants lack. That of a very bubbly staff, eager to serve. Because the menu is large and varied, I was practically walked through it with a smile, laughter and suggestions. The food, needless to say,... More

This little place is tuck under the city, so to speak, it reminds me of cafes in Toronto, or Waterloo, offering a variety of salads, coffees, a great place for lunch with a friend.

Many people commute to Owen Sound daily and for those working downtown the Bean Cellar is like our extended family. It's not fancy but it sure is friendly. The only coffee with higher octane than Tim's and it's served up with empathy and encouragement. Hearty homecooking, a guitar to pick, papers to read and always friends to cheer you up.

Very good coffee and tea and fairly priced. All snacks are homemade and priced accordingly. Sometimes it's quite noisy.

The smiling staff at the Bean Cellar preside over a lovely little cafe with fresh, homemade cooking. It will take you a while to read all the succulent offerings of sandwiches (hot and cold), wraps, soups and beverages for your meal. Follow up with tempting homemade deserts, wander along a wall with racks of coffee beans and interesting teas and... More

We were looking for a good café today, driving through Owen Sound. We stopped into the Bean Cellar for take-away and ordered an Americano, a flavoured coffee and some treats. I thought the ambiance of the place was interesting and charming, especially the guitars set out for customers to strum! Very unique. There are also magazines and games available. The... More

I always enjoy stopping by the Bean Cellar for lunch when I am visiting in Owen sound. The staff is friendly and cheerful. The food is bistro/cafe variety. The food is always very freshly made to order and the coffee is excellent also. They offer good vegetarian and well as non-vegetarian options if this is interest for you. There is... More

The "Bean" as it is known, is a quaint, hidden-away spot in Owen Sound. Great menu of soups, sandwiches, wraps, baked goods and, of course, coffee and tea. A very popular hang-out for the locals. Staff there is so accommodating and friendly. Everyone gets treated like family.
