This cafe is a great place to go for lunch or a cup of coffee with friends who just want to meet up with one another. The food and service are both very good and everyone is friendly there.

We stopped in to the Bean Counter Cafe for a caffe latte and a cappuccino. The coffees had deep flavour and were very hot (a good thing). We also had a large and gooey Rice Krispie square. It was tasty. The coffeehouse has a very nice environment with lots of seating. We will definitely return.

This small imtimate cafe is the idea place for a coffee/snack/lunch break. The service is quick and the atmosphere just what you need when taking a rest on your trip.

Had a latte and the most delicious roast chicken sandwich with cranberry sauce. It was served on thick slices of a yummy, grain bread. Also had a cup of pumpkin ginger soup. Awesome!

Incredibly fresh chicken sandwich you have to go here and try anything always good and always fresh. The breakfast bagel sandwich is one to try as well. Yum Yum!

Humongous sandwiches, home baking, home made soups - great coffees and nice people. What more could you ask for?
