“Never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I wanted to go somewhere great tonight with my kids - but there is no kids' menu and the portion sizes are skimpy especially for the price - while the food is tasty, the service wasn't great and seriously, 7 pieces of pasta for $14!

“Good place to take your MacMaster student”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Been here several time with our Mac student over the last 4 years.
The style is very student friendly and convent.
It has been consistently good. My favourite is the T burger and sweet potato fries.
The vegan chill is also good. My wife had all the salads which are large and fresh.
There is a great desert display, with a wide variety of temptations.

“Excellent food, wonderful atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Went to the Bean Bar last week with a group of friends. We each ordered completely different meals but everyone enjoyed them immensely. The service was quite good, very friendly. The overall atmospher was very enjoyable. Cozy and fun to just hang out. Highly recommend this place in Westdale area.

“ouch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

How are they still open? Busy place but service was laughable, server was dirty with food, forgot several items and food was not fresh. Place is worn except chairs were new. No appeal, and not cheap. For that price I should have went to place next store 1010 Bistro.

“Favourite local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This is my go-to restaurant for lunch during the work week and my 16 year old, vegetarian daughter's favourite restaurant anytime. Always fabulous food. I repeat, fabulous. Try the potato bread - to die for. The old cheddar and apple grilled cheese on multi-grain with bacon. Wonderful. Obviously run by foodies who love what they do. The owner(s) are often working the door and tables and always stop to chat. Service and atmosphere is quite casual and a bit bustling (noisy) but that is the intent. They don't bug you constantly but are friendly and cheerful. If you want a more stuffy, fine dining experience go somewhere else - this is more of a relaxed, friendly environment but for my money, you can't go wrong with the food. Mussels are a treat if in season.
