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!

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.
