I have been a long time fan but am much less so now. The place always has interesting people and tends to be jammed. But the coffee last several times has been ordinary. Better coffee elsewhere in the neighbourhood

Service is hit or miss, usually hit though. Any drink will be great, hot vietnamese, and mistos in particular. The milk shakes are the best in the city, try chocolate-espresso. Great place to people watch, and see a mixed crowd.

I love this spot. There are several good coffee shops but this is my fav. The coffee is excellent every time.

The location is convenient just off 17th Avenue, SW on 9th Street. I enjoy the people that go because there is always a good mix of older people, artist-types, students, business people, and cool hipsters. The food selection is compact and often your favourite sandwich is sold out by noon.

The layout seems a bit awkward. I love that they don't offer wifi because if they did, it would, at times, be nearly impossible to find a seat. I do see too many people still occupying a seat for hours with papers or meetings at busy times. It would be good if the management got a handle on that.

The service is always friendly. Generous outdoor seating on benches. People are always there.

The interior is a bit worn and the seating needs some repair but they have cool posters on the wall that they change out fairly often. The place feels like your favourite well worn comfortable sweater..

Did I mention the coffee? Excellent every time!

Caffe Beano has been around for many years and the cafe lattes are always good. They use great coffee, know how to make a good hot latte.

Sandwiches are relish! Seating was comfy but tight in the corner area. Service fast and knowledgable. Bright spacious feel to the seating area.
