We ordered caramel crunch cake and calamari frittes. The taste was amazing and we had a great time at the restaurant.

First visit here, and we had wonderful service, food, drinks and overall had a very good experience. The waitress was excellent and kept us informed on all the specials, plus attended to us at all the right moments. The food was prompt and really interesting flavors. We had the Squash Ravioli and Beef Bolognese. We went to select a dessert,... More

I came for dinner and dessert with friends after work. I had the cauliflower, which was flavourful and well-cooked. My friends were all happy with their meals. Bean Bar is pretty consistent in terms of their dishes (I've gone quite a few times and have never had a terrible experience), although the interior could use an update and it can... More

I'd been here before for coffee about 4 years ago, but came back with a friend for dinner. I had the turkey burger with fries and it was so tasty. The craft beer was also very good. Service staff were also super friendly. Would definitely go back again.

Bean Bar is one of those restaurants we had tucked away in our minds, as a place we wanted to try some day. Always looking for something a little different, this place did not disappoint. The decor is dated, I'm assuming intentionally, because it works. The staff and service is over the top, from the moment you walk through the... More

Went for dinner with friends. Each of us ordered a different item and we all left satisfied and happy. This is a regular haunt for me. None of my friends have been there for a while. Fries and dessert were the highlight. The small taco meal was very generous and the grilled cheese was delicious. We will be back soon.

This place was trendy a long time ago and popular when there weren't many good restaurants in Hamilton, but Hamilton has evolved into the foodie city now with new, great restaurants popping up all over town, and is starting to overtake Toronto in this regard. So the bar is set a lot higher than it used to be for restaurants... More

I went with a friend today to the Bean Bar. I had been here previously, but only for coffee and dessert. I saw that they had a large menu, so was wanting to try it for a meal. I had the french onion soup that had phylo pastry on top instead of crouton. Nice. My meal was a To Die... More

I love going to bean bar, especially for their dessert. They're cakes are so amazing, they have a huge selection and if you need help deciding a worker will come by and name every cake for you and help with suggestions. I also love the main course meals, the only thing is I wish the sandwiches would come with a... More

Great meal at reasonable price. Waitress was very friendly and interested. My wife has a milk allergy and this didn't phase them at all. Good choice and clearly appeals to all ages. Great desserts. Thanks
