I had the nerve to call the cafe to ask about catering for a small function, when the guy answering the phone said 'not interested' and hung up before I even finished my sentence! I immediately called back and said 'don't hang up on me again', and he then told me he was too busy to talk and hung up again. I was left gobsmacked and disgusted. Needless to say they won't be getting my business again.

The Bean Tree cafe is set in the Olive Pink Gardens and this gives it a really pleasant atmosphere. If the weather is really hot then the Bean Tree is not really the best place to be but from April to October, this is a great place for a light meal and coffee. The service can at times be a bit slow and the system of placing an order with a table number when you don't know where you are sitting is a bit confusing. That said, the standard of presentation and the quality of the food and drinks is pretty good. Some might complain about dirty tables but realistically with the dining area being subject dust and birds, probably a bit hard to have the area squeaky clean all the time. There are plenty of quiet spots to sit if you want to get away from kids or noisy women!

Had breakfast here which was good! Substantial serve, and the coffee was better than expected.

There is a sandpit for the kids to play in, so I think the local mums come along with their bubs. Certainly looked that way!

There is adequate seating, which is all outdoors.

The kitchen didn't permit me any mods on my menu item ( I wanted scrambled, not poached eggs), which I found a bit curious. But oh well! It was still nice.

The tables that were dirty when we arrived were still dirty an hour later when we left! So that was also a bit strange. But still.... I would recommend it! If they could fix these minor service flaws, it would get five stars from me!
