We found this place while traveling for business and were rewarded with an excellent visit. The appetizer sampler and plantain pork sandwich were both amazing, truly a suprise (we thought) for the location. Desserts and bakery items, along with the great house coffee, should not be missed.

Have you ever come across a gem...one that may have surprised you? Beanwood Latin Bistro in Bordentown City, New Jersey is one of those gems, one to be treasured. We had the pleasure to dine at Beanwood this Friday evening and savored the spectacular tapas dinner that was on the menu for the evening. The entire experience was fabulous, to say the least. The food was delicious, the presentation was superb. The service was great, and the ambiance was a pleasure. Each of the 10 dishes served made you excited for the next course. The flavors that were brought to your palate enhanced the entire experience.

If you are looking for something different, unusual and wonderful this is the place to be. The price of the meal is fair for the quality of food and service. Elizabeth as the owner and Papa who mans the kitchen, as well as their staff do a spectacular job making you feel welcomed to their fine establishment. We highly recommend Beanwood, it is a dining experience not to be missed. It is a BYOB.

We travel from NYC to Baltimore several times a year, and Beanwood is the place we always stop for lunch. The coffee, which the owner Elizabeth roasts herself, is the best we've ever had. The lunches are also excellent. I think Elizabeth makes all the food in the bistro kitchen, including the baked goods and even the bread! Portions are satisfying but not so large that you need to stuff yourself or else leave something over. We especially love the tostaditas.

If we lived in Bordentown, we'd be going here several times a week. Prices are reasonable.

FYI: They will mail their coffee to you. We order a package a month.

I'm a regular customer at Beanwood with my family ever since they opened, and they just get better and better! The coffee is amazingly rich; you can get it iced, as espresso, or with a selection of gourmet syrups! The food is all-natural, and organic, with options for vegans. Obviously Latin American is what's on the menu, but it's paralleled with a delectable selection of soups, salads and sandwiches (including panini). They not only do breakfast, lunch, and dinner but excellent desserts and gourmet teas! They also serve Tapas on Fridays, but reservations are strongly encouraged if you are expecting a table (very popular event!). The owners are a wonderful couple with a passion for great food and creativity, you'll be amazed at what this place has to offer!
