Vegetarian cafe with excellent food and excellent service. Good value too. There is a delightful little garden at the rear with tables that looks perfect. Also there is extra seating downstairs. A perfect lunch for our visit to the Trienniel.

Beano's is sited near the harbour in the Creative Quarter, and from the outside looks like any other small café, but what a delight! Fabulous vegetarian dishes beautifully presented. I had an excellent falafel with a pleasantly spicy filling and my wife chose a nut roast. The accompanying salads were fresh and imaginative - mine for example included sweet potato.... More

The atmosphere is lovely, the staff friendly and helpful, and the food is amazing!! As a vegan, I like to try new vegie/vegan restaurants and cafés to check them out, and I was not disappointed. The vegan chilli was fantastic, the cakes and cookies just amazing. Pat is new to vegetarianism and absolutely loved Beano's. We just wish it were... More

Came in with the family for lunch on Saturday after my 'meat' eating brother raved about the place, even though the restaurant was near enough full the service was prompt! Our waitress was very sweet and helped my gluten free son choose a meal suitable for his needs. Very accommodating! I had the mushroom and leek Stilton burger....amazing! The BEST... More

We have just discovered this gem in the Harbour area of Folkestone. It is a rare treat for us veggies to find a totally vegetarian restaurant and this one was certainly worth visiting. I had delicious risotto cakes with griddled haloumi and mushrooms (excellent!) and my normally meat eating sister in law had a walnut, lentil and quinoa veggie burger... More

As a long-time strict vegetarian, it takes a lot to impress me but I was most impressed by the hugely tasty and reasonable food available at Beano's. Located in the slightly shabby Creative Quarter, it really shows other veggie/vegan cafes the way. Enjoying a lovely meal in the suntrap back garden after receiving attentive, friendly service, I just wish there... More

Very nice cupcake! Unfortunately we got there a little after 5 when they'd stopped serving as close at 5:30 so will have to go for lunch only!

We popped in here for lunch as a special treat having read such good things about it. The chilli was lovely if lacking a little depth, thankfully the fresh coriander garnish lifted it a bit. I'm told the soup of the day and fresh bread were spot on (from an avid meat eater)! Living locally we don't have much cause... More
