We found this small cafe in the Main Street. We found it dark, with limited seating very close together. Also the coffee was very average tasting. Staff friendly and efficient.

I'm a repeat customer, which is really saying something as I'm quite picky with my coffee (mumma needs her caffeine in the morning hahaha). Being a Barista myself, I'm always impressed by the flavour of their coffee; even asking them about it which they were only too happy to tell me. Always great customer service! Great little spot to eat.... More

Always a good coffee, although I'm a black coffee person. You have plenty of choice . As a regular you can have a snack or a meal. Worth a visit if in Ballina - if busy there can be a small delay

Two Vanilla Milk shakes served in Mason Jar (Small) $10. I didn't try the coffee. In fact as I have no intention of EVER returning I never shall.

BeanBank, Owner at The Bean Bank Coffee House, responded to this review

Hi Dave Thanks for your feedback. We"re sorry you weren't happy with the size of your Milkshake. We don't feel we are ripping anyone off. On the contrary our "small" Jars are 500ML which is 118.296ML more than the Traditional Milkshake glass. We feel that $5.00 is a reasonable price. Our Coffee is also very good and reasonably priced.

Good coffee, small setting. Had some takeaway breakfast which took a long time to come out, and was fairly average, but the coffee was nice.

Thank BTM39
