I meet with colleagues and friends here several times a week. It's conveniently located downtown. The expansion into the adjacent storefront offers additional comfortable seating. They have an impressive selection of hot and cold drinks and offer looseleaf tea and coffee in bulk. The service is always friendly and quick. The lunch menu is reasonably diverse and there's always a... More

I went to Dreams of Beans for lunch but I was very confused. A while ago I had lunch there served by Fresh Dreams and can still remember the lentil stew and the bikini sandwich. This time around they recommended the special, chilli and 'this little piggy sandwich'. The food was less than impressive and had no flavour, "a real... More

Wow the changes to this iconic place are awesome. Jatin (Jin), the owner bought the place 4 years ago at the age of 24. He has done an amazing job of introducing a lunch menu via fresh dream catering. We went there today and they are now fully licensed so we have an extra special coffee.

So I googled 'coffee near me' just for a place to get some work done with WiFi. What a delightful place - you should see:hear how the owner speaks with the regulars, how much he loves the food he cooks. Locally sourced food with vegan options. While I was working he tempted me with a couple free (delicious) apps, he... More

this place is beautiful! fresh spanish cuisine and the service is literally the best I've ever received. I ordered a coffee and a sandwich and the owner routinely came out and served me free sample after free sample of delicious cold pressed spanish olive oil and warm bread, a lentil salad taster, and a small pot of fresh lentil stew...

We loved this place the minute we walked in ! We were greeted by a gentleman who offered us a delicious toasted bread & tomato snack . It was fantastic . The coffee was great, the atmosphere was cool & the people behind the counter were so friendly & kind. Would love to go back !

Great little spot for a quick & fair trade coffee before work, or a sit down lunch with some friends. I highly recommend the "Our Club" sandwich from the menu! Delicious and authentic Spanish food And unbelievable service every time. If you're downtown Peterborough you have to check this place out.

I came to meet a client for coffee but ended up staying for lunch... Came back a few days later because the service and lunch menu was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Try the special club sandwich. Of course delicious coffee too. Give it a try especially if entertaining out of towners.
