We visit The Bean Counter quite often, living not far away at Qualicum. We sometimes go up the coast for a drive and sometimes walk our hound at an excellent nearby walk, the LIghthouse Community Park. When venturing out up the highway we make a point of stopping for a coffee and a bite. The food we have had has always been excellent and the service likewise. The staff there have always been friendly and helpful. My wife and I often share a sandwich on incredibly good bread. My only complaint is that when we walk our hound on Sundays, we forget The Bean Counter closes as 4 pm and so have to forego the planned visit.
