I have family in the area so this was my first visit. The Eclectic design of old and new is inviting and interesting. I especially enjoyed the massive metal wall sconces. Our dinners were very good, hot large portions and nice presentation. My wife and other patrons enjoyed viewing the cakes that were beautifully displayed. I would have given the... More

This is a rare find. My family is always on the look out for the 'unusual, exceptional and unique' culinary experience. We have found some in Florida, France, Germany and a few in Canada. The bean Bar in Hamilton is very unique and has qualified to meet the 3 attributes......I will explain: it is Debbie and staff + food +... More

Stopped by with a friend for a couple of drinks and dinner one evening and we really enjoyed the feel of they place. It was busy but not crowded, and noisy workout being loud. The menu is extensive and everything we had was really good. The salads are huge and fantastic! Absolutely a great place to enjoy a chilled out... More

The food is very good, portions are more than adequate. The only negative about this place is that the washrooms are downstairs and it smells when you go down. The old carpeting down there should be replaced as its very unappetizing. Otherwise, I recommend this place.

I love this cafe. The atmosphere is great, the drinks and food are amazing and the music is not so loud that you can't talk. It is a great place to go for a romantic coffee/dessert or just catch-up with some friends!

My boyfriend and I went here for dessert. Nice little place. Reasonably priced. The desserts are delicious and they offer a decent selection of gluten free desserts. The white chocolate cheesecake was super tasty. I've eaten here for dinner in the past and also really enjoyed it.

One of my favorite places to eat when I visit Hamilton. Large selection on menu for lunch and dinner or just stopping in for desert after catching a movie next door

Three of us lunched here today. Two of us were very pleased with our meal while one was disappointed with his club sandwich. I guess the impression out there is that a club sandwich is a big one while this one dwarfed another one served to us. However, the food was good and the service was outstanding. We will go... More

The restaurant is decent in everything it is -- service, food, cakes, etc. I have heard many people rave about the Bean Bar, but it definitely did not live up to its expectations especially in terms of the "cake tour" they offer... you could get the same "tour" at your local Fortinos. The food is tasty, but I was not... More

We ordered caramel crunch cake and calamari frittes. The taste was amazing and we had a great time at the restaurant.
