I was there a few days ago and ordered the grilled cheese. The flavor was awesome and I really enjoyed my meal- great atmosphere and great food!

This was a cozy coffee shop with excellent coffee and very friendly staff who were eager to provide recommendations on things to see and do as soon as they learned we were from out of town. Free wi-fi and a nice outdoor patio, too! There was fantastic selection and variety of coffee drinks. I would highly recommend the chai tea... More

We headed off the TransCanada to find a healthy lunch - and ended up taking "food to go" as it was the best we'd found in days! The staff were friendly, and the coffee was delicious (roasted in BC ironically) We had homemade soup and a muffin for lunch - and ended up with a date square and muffin to... More

I only frequent a few local coffee shops in Thunder Bay. The Bean Fiend Cafe is my go to place for a "Red Eye" "Expresso" and "Late". It also serves really good food (salads, sandwiches, soups and sweets). A great place to do work, meet with colleagues and relax (out on the patio)

A great place for Vegans and non-Vegans. Very friendly staff and owner is highly personable. The coffee is also amazing! Love everything about this cafe and wish it was where I live too!

Recently I had lunch at the Bean Fiend Cafe. The Chicken, Brie, Spinach and Apricot jam sandwich was delicious . Along with my sandwich I had a great cup of coffee. The atmosphere is nice and the service was great. I look forward to returning to this cafe soon

Stopped by for lunch with my nephew after his HS exam. I ordered a latte and had the roasted chicken sammy. For a place called The Bean Fiend, to be honest, the latte wasn't great! Loose foam with big bubbles. I wanted it to be silky and luxurious but it was no better than I could make myself. I will... More

Enjoyed the Toasted Turkey and Chicken & Brie sandwich. We thoroughly enjoyed our food, experience and the overall atmosphere. They were by far the best sandwiches we've ever had and will be sure to have us coming back for more :) Keep it up Bean Fiend staff!!!

We found this little gem on our roadtrip looking for a neat coffee shop in Thunder Bay. And that's just what we found. The small café has a warm atmosphere, the staff was friendly and interested, asked us about our journey and the large latte was done with four shots without extra charge, just cause they were nice. And it... More
