“Awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Beanz is a great cafe, with delicious food and drinks. Every person who has ever served me was extremely polite and welcoming. The decor is very nice with lots of art and color, and is very clean. I enjoy the low light and relaxed atmosphere. However, I don't think there is wheelchair access or a lot of parking space, and the women's bathroom has a stubborn lock which can leave you stuck inside the bathroom.

“Great Beanz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

A great downtown Charlottetown coffee house. Coffee is fresh brewed to your taste with fair trade beans, ground on site. whether its a cappuccino, latte, regular or specialty coffee - I've never had a cup I didn't love. The staff are always friendly, happy to make my brew to order! But don't stop at coffee - try the freshly made muffins, pastries and deserts. One of my favorite treats - a cappuccino and pumpkin pie - can't beat it! They are great caterers too - delicious freshly made sandwiches, soups, salads and deserts, delivered on time, to your door! Love that the walls are covered with local artists' creations - all for sale too! All the way around, a great experience, every time.

“Great place for a morning coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

What's not to like? The counter staff are very friendly and helpful, the coffee is delicious, and the space is a warm and cozy place to sit and relax for a bit. There are plenty of newspapers and magazines to read, paintings to look at, or counter seats at the window to people-watch.

“Didn't live up to expectations”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Like the look of the place and pastries looked good. Unfortunately they don't take their coffee as seriously. Had a brew and was disappointed. They are still into flavored coffees which is really low grade coffee masked with flavours. Time to step it up and go for quality coffee. The coffee I had tasted like it had the residues of past brews which would tell me they are not separating the flavored coffees from the non flavored and they are not cleaning their machines. You have a great place go one step further and gave great coffee! Wondering why you have changed to not letting customers put own milk in. Is this cost savings?

So sorry to hear about your experience. We have been selling our line of regular brewed coffees for 18 years now and this includes not only our house blend and two flavoured coffees , but also a dark roast and a fair trade organic dark. We do clean our brewers, pots and dispensers thoroughly every day and rinse our pots after every brew. It is possible that the pot wasn't rinsed well enough after a flavoured coffee was brewed causing some residual flavor in your coffee.We are sorry if this was the case and will remind everyone of the importance of rinsing after each brew. When we first opened in 1995, we had a condiment station but found that the majority of our customers enjoyed having their coffee prepared for them. We have many options now... Including not only cream , milk and sugar but soy milk, almond milk, various sweeteners including island honey and raw brown sugar, Splenda and more. We are always happy to allow a customer to " dress" their own coffee. Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns. Observations like this keep us on our toes!

“Best Espresso in PEI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

I like my espresso intense, aromatic and smooth. There are not many cafes in the new world that can make a good espresso like the Beanz do. The service was prompt and courteous and the quality of espresso was excellent. I ended up going there every time I was in Charlottetown.
