I am a long time resident of Ladysmith and have enjoyed the fabulous home-made style dishes at the Beantime Café since they opened. They have fabulous specials everyday and their portions are substantial; I almost always end up taking half my meal home. They also make great speciality coffees, lattes, etc.

Went to this coffee shop for breakfast on the weekend. It has a funky vibe, the Americano and lattes were excellent, and the breakfasts were tasty. We ordered two breakfast muffins, a breakfast burrito, and a breakfast bagel. All were freshly made and very filling. The service was very good.

Great place to meet friends and family or on your own. Very friendly and welcoming.
Food very good, I like the caesar chicken wrap, island salad and the breakfast. Coffee best in town.

We really enjoy Beantime. The building and space is very cool and suits this kind of venue perfectly. High ceilings, old dated hardwood, very comfortable place to relax for lunch. Staff are great and never harass. Food is creative, fun and very good, coffee is awesome too.

From the outside...this cafe looks promising....fitting in with the ambience of the town of ladysmith, it has all the acoutrements to be an outstanding location for a quiet coffee. However....service is something that needs to be given some strong attention. My order taking was interrupted to correct another customers order error and when I finally got back the young lady serving me, she was completely lost. I had to repeat the order several times and still the order was wrong. AS well...I ordered a reuben sandwich and was told that the restaurant does not use RYE bread...HUH.
This could be a great place instead of an average place...I would go back...but it will be a while....the food, although not exactly what I wanted, was good and the soup was quite good...
Just need to sort out that service
