Description
Open April-December, Monday - Friday 7:00-3:00. Max & Barbara have brought their history & love of food & music to this Bistro on 27 Main St. in Sherbrooke, NS. Barbara has created a menu that ranges from a pulled pork sandwich, Mexican burger & St. Mary's Smoked Salmon sandwich. Everything is fresh, sourced locally where possible & made to order. Gluten free bread available for sandwiches. They offer the very best premium coffee and espresso drinks on Route 7 , made with a honking Lido Fiorenzato espresso machine, as well as healthy, handmade meals served with a little love on every plate. They also offer a tasty Daily Special & free wi-fi to boot! Beanie's was presented with the 2016 "Flavour Award" at the DEANS Gala Awards. This award is presented to a food and beverage establishment which has made an impact on creating an experience for the visitor. Laughter is optional but recommended. Eat where the locals eat. It's a great way to experience our community.
