This little place is tuck under the city, so to speak, it reminds me of cafes in Toronto, or Waterloo, offering a variety of salads, coffees, a great place for lunch with a friend.

Many people commute to Owen Sound daily and for those working downtown the Bean Cellar is like our extended family. It's not fancy but it sure is friendly. The only coffee with higher octane than Tim's and it's served up with empathy and encouragement. Hearty homecooking, a guitar to pick, papers to read and always friends to cheer you up.

Very good coffee and tea and fairly priced. All snacks are homemade and priced accordingly. Sometimes it's quite noisy.

The smiling staff at the Bean Cellar preside over a lovely little cafe with fresh, homemade cooking. It will take you a while to read all the succulent offerings of sandwiches (hot and cold), wraps, soups and beverages for your meal. Follow up with tempting homemade deserts, wander along a wall with racks of coffee beans and interesting teas and... More

We were looking for a good café today, driving through Owen Sound. We stopped into the Bean Cellar for take-away and ordered an Americano, a flavoured coffee and some treats. I thought the ambiance of the place was interesting and charming, especially the guitars set out for customers to strum! Very unique. There are also magazines and games available. The... More

The "Bean" as it is known, is a quaint, hidden-away spot in Owen Sound. Great menu of soups, sandwiches, wraps, baked goods and, of course, coffee and tea. A very popular hang-out for the locals. Staff there is so accommodating and friendly. Everyone gets treated like family.

Definitely not accessable as you have to go down to the basement. Food simple but good. Prices very reasonable. Cafe type and great for lunches. Atmosphere unique. A great variety of herbal teas and coffees. Cup I was served my herbal tea in was chipped on the lip, which was replaced when pointed out.

The sandwiches and wraps here are perfect. The best combination of ingredients and freshness. Try any of the grilled sandwiches and you will be pleased. Love it. Great ambiance and fun place. The soups are great also.
