Review of Silver Bean Cafe - MOVED

Silver Bean Cafe
Price range: US$ 7 - US$ 12
Description: The Silver Bean Café is located in Millennium Park in Peterborough, Ontario. Since 2003, we have offered an experience of food and coffee near the Otonabee River. We call it 'your waterfront cottage in the city' because the Silver Bean Café is a community café, your cottage in the city of Peterborough. We serve: Light lunches with specialty sandwiches and salads Breakfast made fresh to order. The freshly baked scones are so good! Desserts made in-house and imported from other bakeries Fair-trade organic coffee and beautifully prepared espresso drinks See our menu to take a look at the food and drink options at the cafe. We are open from May 1st until Thanksgiving. See our hours to make sure you don't come down when we're closed! We get involved in a lot of community events and encourage you to join us and do the same. Get in touch with us and say hello.

(visited Aug. '17) We came here as part of my mom's birthday, tour around. We brought her here, as my hubby and I had been here a few times before for coffee, and we like the outdoor atmosphere, and figured mom would enjoy it too. We just came for coffee and a snack, and we had the delectable ginger cookies, and another type (can't remember). So delicious, and they come from Planet Bakery. The coffee is good, and I just read it's Kyoto. We like the view while we're here (even tho' we were sitting amoungst the trees)...looking out over the river, watching the people on paddle boards and kayaks, and of course people-watching, of everyone coming and going. This summer, I'd like to come back and enjoy a lunch, so will make a mental note of that! Must have another ginger cookie too!

This used to be a great go to place for coffee. Unfortunately, because of the popularity, it has become more of a take-away location. Situated on Little Lake and Millennium Park, the environment is nice but it is difficult to get a seat.

The coffee is still good and the staff are friendly. You need to time you visit!

Tried different type of their desserts. They are all good, especially in love with their carrot cake. Location is just awesome. Very relaxing during summer and great view there. Definitely a place to hang out!

We were told about this place by a local person who highly recommended it for breakfast. Gorgeous out door patio overlooking the river. The food is very fresh and tasty. The staff so sweet and very helpful to an older couple who are just stopping for the night on the way North.

We went here with a large group (~15) for supper. They seemed a bit overwhelmed at first, but then we got our food so quickly I was shocked! The food was excellent - tasty and at least somewhat healthy! Prices were great for the amount of food and quality. And you can't beat their patio over the river!

Oh yeah, and they serve Kawartha Dairy ice cream!

Thank you for the great review Eleanor. I wasn't personally at the cafe yesterday evening but I am glad to hear that the staff, whom we love, were cool under pressure and delivered the food quickly. We are very grateful for your kind words and encourage you to come again. - Michael and Andrea
