I ate here today. They are so friendly - the guy recommended a wrap. I like trying new things and this was so tasty. You can walk through the kitchen and eat by the river. The kitchen was spotlessly clean. Lovely staff. Decent price, filling and tasty food. Will certainly return!!

Went to this little coffee house on the Main Street for a late breakfast. Food was fine - we had the bacon and egg roll special. But the coffee was the standout. Service is also to be commended in this place. Decor is very well thought out and it is a place you can relax and hang out in

I am trying to review Beanz in River Street Ballina. The home of the best vegie burger ever. I always love the peanut sauce with it and find it hard to pass up one of their fantastic slices. I share that for sure as after the vegie burger there's not much room left. From what I hear everything is fabulous... More

Good coffee and friendly staff. Not sure it would be the best in Ballina..will have to check out some more spots. If you like a punch to your coffee this probably isnt the bean for you.

On weekends I get treated to a large coffee first thing in the morning. The Bean Bank's "love bites" blend is by far the best coffee available in Ballina! I cant comment on the food as I haven't had a meal here.....yet!

The Bean Bank is not big in size but it makes up in friendliness and service. We had breakfast there over a long weekend and although they were pretty short on staff the coffee was delish and the food was fresh and hot.

Unreal! Definitely a competitor for best coffee on the North Coast. It's presence is justifying a lot of driving across from Lismore - highly recommended

I am on a quest for excellent chai in the local area. The Bean Bank fits the bill. Bean Bank's chai tea is spicy, looks and tastes like chai tea (not insipid white milk as is frequently the case) and is delicious. Whenever I'm in Ballina and wanting a good chai, I only ever go here now. It's available at... More
