“Excellent coffee”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We only stopped for coffee here. Great service, atmosphere and coffee!! The menu looked good, if you want to have more than a coffee.

“Great cup of coffee; watch out Starbucks”

We only ordered a coffee as we had already eaten lunch. However, the coffee was outstanding and the service freindly and prompt.

“Great spot for lunch”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

The Bean Counter Café on Main St, in Picton, is in the thick of the action and is a great spot to grab a light lunch, people watch, and generally relax. They offer a wide range of sandwiches ($3.50 for a good smoked turkey sandwich) and desserts. While the cupcake I bought was not as fresh as it could have been, we enjoyed the atmosphere and look of this café. Service was friendly and prompt. Washrooms were clean.

“Nice cafe in Picton, Ontario”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We were so impressed with this cafe the first time, we paid a return visit. Owner-operated (new owners took over recently), this cafe provides good quality lunches and delicious deserts. It also features good coffee and serves loose leaf tea in a pot! That's not too common in North America. Our group of four tried a variety of sandwiches (choice of breads), we were all impressed. Most of us thought the soups we tried, sweet potato bisque (delicately spiced) and onion and mushroom were excellent although I thought the onion and mushroom to be a little too salty. Service was excellent. Prices were very competitive. But the are a couple of niggles that need to be worked on: 1, watch the salt levels in soup; 2, crackers were not always supplied with soup; 3, my sweet potato bisque was not warm--staff heated it immediately on request; 4, when one orders both a sandwich and the soup, one saves a $1, that's nice, but one also loses the carrot sticks and the pickle that normally accompany the sandwich. It happened three times so I assume it is policy; silly, needs to be tweaked. Those minor issues aside, this is a very good cafe operating in a competitive market.
