i found the food to be a bit overpriced, and although the atmosphere was nice, the food lacked in quality.

Simply put, 'the Bean Bar' is another over-priced and overrated restaurant. There really isn't much to pour over as the only things distinguishing it from a Kelsey's or Montana's is the cake selections and the tea/coffee menu, and even those are pretty mediocre, considering it is primarily a dessert/coffee shop. The only real selling point of the place is that it is somewhat richly decorated to create a warm inviting atmosphere...which I find ends up becoming lost due to the noise level the restaurant generates. I think I would only step into 'the Bean Bar' if every coffee shop on earth vanished into oblivion. So if you ever find yourself considering to make a visit to 'the Bean Bar', do yourself a favour and head further down the street to 'Valentino's' instead.
