“Out of town visitor is hooked on The Bean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

In a past career, I co-managed a coffeehouse in North Bay and have always wanted to open a new place. When I found out that a new friend of mine worked at the Bean, I knew that I would have to drop in and check it out. I can't comment on the server because we're friends and my opinion is tainted but I can speak from experience on the quality of the coffee, food and atmosphere.

The cappuccino was delicious and foamy. The breakfast wrap was delicious and hit the spot. The atmosphere is cozy, relaxing, not pretentious and would be a great place to catch an intimate musical act.

Sadly, to get my Bean fix, I would have to drive six hours return but the next time I'm in the Soo, I'm sure to visit!

I am not a fan of Tim Hortons and when I am in teh Sault, I will go out of my way to get a flavoured coffee from the Steamy Bean.

“A little loud!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2011

Nice atmosphere and good drinks and snacks, but when there's live music, it's too loud. It's not a bar, it's a coffee house.
