This restaurant/café is well worth a visit. You don't have to be a vegetarian to appreciate well cooked, tasty food. Service with a smile is also a plus. Went a lunchtime but understand they will be opening in the evenings in the new year.

To be fair, if you are in Folkestone and you want to eat vegan, your choices are rather limited. Imagine how disappointed you would be if Beano's failed to step up to the mark. Luckily, they did. I had a rather delicious sweet potato and cashew curry suitably veganised and a pot of camomile tea. The best bit though was... More

I have just returned from a delicious Christmas lunch. The nut roast was probably the best I have ever tasted. Presentation and atmosphere in the café great and the staff friendly and welcoming as always. One of the best places to eat in Folkestone.

I'd been looking forward to going here for a while. Somehow it had been closed before eg on bank hols. There were a surprising number of people for lunch on a Thursday. The staff obviously knew many of them well but although they were polite to us I wouldn't say they were friendly as others have said. I had the... More

The food, the coffee, the staff, the food, and the coffee... Oh, And the staff! It's all lovely. Go here and experience a great atmosphere and enjoy the fantastic menu. They have an excellent drinks selection and always met with a smile.

We went here for lunch having been meaning to for a while. Despite thinking we wouldn't get a seat as it was busy, we were invited to sit in the well appointed downstairs area. We chose 3 dishes to share - soup with home made bread, toasted mozzarella and tomato sandwich and sweet potato chips and were not disappointed. It... More

I came with my husband and son. My husband is a meat eater but throughly enjoyed his meal. It's like a little piece of heaven in my local town and is so refreshing to be able to order anything from the menu and know that I can eat it.. I will be back for a breakfast very soon.

Brilliant cafe that serves delicious vege and vegan food prepared on the premises. Friendly service. Highlights are the risotto cakes and the curry. Bread is homemade and service is quick. Highly recommended.

Have just come back from another fabulous lunch at Beanos. This little restaurant alone would have been reason enough to move to the South East coast. We have been several times over the past two and a half years and have never been disappointed. The consistency of the delicious, freshly cooked food, the exceptionally friendly staff and the astoundingly good... More

Folkestone's great vege cafe is trialling Friday evening opening and you can even byo your own wine. However better wines on offer in the evening than on the day time menu which we didn't realize before we arrived. Give it your support and hopefully we will get more weekend evening opening in future.
