Lovely little cafe that supports local / Canadian authors. Literary events, coffee, fresh baking; what’s not to love? Wide selection of hot and cold beverages with an assortment of small goods, this is an ideal place to grab a book and spend the afternoon. Meet a friend here, or just enjoy your time with a good read.

Nice little coffee shop on the main street in downtown Vernon. Basic interior with plain floor boards and tables, but excellent coffee of all shapes and sizes. Good muffins and other pastries as well. Local art displayed on the walls. A good experience for coffee lovers.

Most mornings I stop in for a coffee, read the newspaper, people watch. Friendly, happy place plus there are also private spots for more personal conversations.

Classic coffee house with great coffee, friendly staff, good food and a great atmosphere. Patio outside is nice. Upstairs seating if you want some privacy.

They support local writers and sold us $2. Cup of delicious coffee. Baking was not great, a scone a bit dry and my husband had another goodie, not great either. Great coffee and nice seating outside.

Love the space but dont expect any smoking deals here - a chai here is about 75 cents more than a chai at starbucks and not nearly as good tasting. the muffins are pretty good though! the service is decent but not terribly friendly. cool art on the walls and a really great upstairs and outside back patio.

Love this coffee shop! Great ambiance, terrific coffee and fantastic service. I also love the merchandise to support Vernon's elephant. Very eclectic. We don't make it to Vernon often but we always stop at the Bean Scene when we do.

Great lattes, muffins and carrot cake in this funky little coffee shop. Plenty of atmosphere; really sweet little patio in the back with all kinds of local artwork throughout. Service was fast, great selection of coffees and tea, and the servers were incredibly cool....relaxed, efficient and friendly.

This place has always featured amazing artists. The back patio area is gorgeous and such a chill place to hangout. Super European feeling, being downtown in a small artfully put together cafe! Coffee is great, would recommend the chai tea latte iced! 😚

Thank Melanie P
