Stopped in for their Burger Love burger entry. Although the description is all about the coffee, the overriding taste is just added richness and strong, flavourful BBQ. A very good and very juice burger. Nice selections of PEI to choose from to complement the burgers....Rebecca did a fine job providing service.More

I can see why people like to relax, study, or otherwise hang out here. It has a cafe vibe more than a bar, with tables well spread out. There are about 20 craft beers on tap, good choice of coffee drinks, and a small but...good menu. We had both deep dish and thin crust pizzas which were quite tasty. Service is laid back, so a bit slow, but very friendly. It seems like a neighborhood place with some regulars. A couple people were by themselves, with their laptops open. This is a mainly residential neighborhood, not downtown, so it seems much more local than appealing to the tourists and cruise ship passengers. A nice find.More

I've been to Bar1911 a couple of times now. It's a wonderful place to be. It's got the type of hipster aesthetic that a lot of these types of places strive for, but without any of the pretentiousness. (And they're dealing with COvid-19 beautifully from...what I've seen!) Pre covid-19, I recall them making a commitment to try and go zero waste. That's likely partially on hold, but it is still very low waste, and they are working hard and well. They have a selection from a local tea maker and I also believe all their beers are too, and I reckon a large amount of their food is locally sourced as well (not that I have anything to actually back up this claim). The staff are immensely attentive. I was given an extra plate unprompted, for my tea bag, so my tea wouldn't over-steep. When I had a coughing fit from swallowing weird, staff was beside me with some water before I had a chance to ask them for one. (FYI, the staff always seem really happy, which is a good sign!) I also enjoyed the food very much. Most recently I had the "Morning Show," which is a breakfast sandwich- very flavorful but no one flavour overpowered the others. My SO commented that he very much enjoyed the "No. 6," a chicken burger.More

I've been meaning to post this for a while now. I have been a regular of Bar1911 since it opened a couple years ago. If you're looking for a wonderful little cafe/bar to meet for lunch, study, or just hangout, this is your place. I...am here usually once a week to study and I sit up at the bar. Staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. Being a regular has it's perks as well, as some staff have my order memorized. It's a nice feeling to be remembered. Staff are also very respectful of my studying, but also provide a compelling conversation when I am not. A great sign of quality service. Bar1911 also has a wonderful selection of alcoholic beverages, supporting only local breweries, as well as a vast majority of cafe style beverages for you caffeine enthusiasts out there. The menu is comprised of many different options to appeal to all, I highly recommend "The Ploughman's Sandwich" a very delicious ham sandwich with fresh veggies and made on a delicious bread. The only bad experience I have had at this establishment has been when my seat at the bar was taken, due to the popularity of the place. This place will always be my highest rated place in Charlottetown for studying/hangout purposes. Lastly, know that table service does not start until the evening. Not a big deal by any means, but being a fly on the wall for the past couple years I have noticed people are confused by this system.More

The service that I get each and every time I go here is exactly what keeps me coming back. Of course the coffee is the best, but there is truly nothing better than being greeted by a "Good Morning, having the usual today?" that is...going above and beyond.

This has become my all time favourite drop in coffee shop. Inviting and cozy atmosphere with fantastic drip coffee. (All kinds of methods available.) London Fog tea (tea latte) is superb. Service is friendly. It is absolutely worth bypassing having a coffee passed to me...through a window at the drive through and stopping in - either to relax for a bit, or to pick up a coffee to go.More

Was curious to tey this place when it opened, especially since it was close to my home. So many tap beers and rather high prices. The menu did not look particularly appetizing. It was very small, which can be very good but this menu just,...in my opinion, did not really offer a diverse and interesting array of beer foods. And this place seems to attempt to be a hipster craft beer joint. Honestly, it almost looks like a front for the video lottery terminals hiding around the corner. Wouldn't come back.More

It's a great place for a beer and unusual, like a loft, but in the basement. Great selection of tap beers and something for every taste. Don't be put off by the walk from downtown (1km), it is worth it. How about adding some salty...snacks to your menu, something that seems to be lacking, you will sell more beers for sure!!More

We stopped by Bar1911 for a coffee and to spend a bit of time together on Labour Day. The decor was outstanding -- reclaimed wood, exposed brick, mis-matched furniture. The designer clearly had a vision and that vision is very consistent with the bohemian style...that many coffee shops adopt. In fact, that is the biggest criticism of the bar: it is not unique in any real way. Receiver offers the same look but with slightly better coffee, kettle black does the exact same thing with slightly worse coffee but a more extensive (and Mediterranean) menu for food. The decor also doesn't really match the branding of the place, which is modern and sleek while the interior is, as previously stated, bohemian. I would recommend that the bar be rebranded in a few years to reflect this. The coffee is good but not great. The price is on par with the rest of Charlottetown's coffee market. The hot chocolate was good but a darker chocolate could be used to increase the flavour that comes through the milk. The staff are very friendly, proficient, and efficient. Granted, it was not a busy day but we were very well attended to. The drinks were well made behind the counter and the bar was kept well and truly cleaned. The only other drawbacks to the place are so minor in scope that they almost don't bear mentioning, but for the purposes of offering some advice to the owner and giving prospective customers an idea, I will go ahead: the "glass" ware is plastic which detracts from the experience, the music is awful Indy covers of popular pop music from the first decade of the third millennium, which gets annoying quickly: the association with coffee shops of a bohemian character, in my mind, is gypsy jazz like the kind Charles Aznavour sings. Overall, satisfied, will come back. The fundamentals are in place to be a great coffee shop, just some details left to hammer out on the branding and 'experience' side of the coin.More
