Been going here since they first began. The menu is large and something for everyone. Their salads are delicious and unique and the grilled cheese from heaven is awesome. The sweet potato fries with mayo are the best!

A busy place so you may have to be patient in waiting for a table. Nice selection of drinks-beer and martinis. A great menu with lots to choose from and prices were reasonable. The portion size was large for all 4 meals that we ordered. A nice selection of desserts too that it was hard to pick one. Thumbs up... More

This is a special place. They have cool stuff you can't find anywhere else. Huge assortment of cakes. We liked it a lot. But very expensive. Try the chair milkshake.

I have had the pleasure of dining at the Bean Bar on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed my experience. The menu is quite big, with an option for every palette. I've always thoroughly enjoyed my choices and find the portion sizes very satisfactory. They have a great drinks menu as well - and don't let me get started on... More

The staff is great and food is always amazing. We have to get the sandwich "To Die For." Just get it. It's that good! We also enjoyed a Quinoa Cobb Salad which was great. My wife went to McMaster and went to this restaurant often. When we visit the area we always stop by. We can't help ourselves.

We came here based on a high recommendation from a friend for dessert after dinner elsewhere. I had the Momo (?) and my husband had a caramel chocolate slice of skor-like heaven. Outstanding. Our server was adorable and friendly and so much fun. I can't wait to return next time!!! Best cheesecake I've had in ages!!

Went back to enjoy their turkey burger which was excellent a few years back. This experience was terrible...the burger was a frozen patty, dry basic bun and little garnishing.....almost $5 to add fries that were just satisfactory and not overly abundant but what tipped the scale was the condition of the bathroom....will never return!!

The Bean Bar is a large casual restaurant in Westdale featuring bistro style cuisine. The service is good and the food is fabulous. Try some french fries cooked in truffle oil, or a warm cheese and apple sandwich with syrup for dipping called "Apple Paradise". And P l e a s e.....do not forget to check out the dessert case...

Went to the Bean Bar last night for supper with two other friends. We were seated right away. The waitress appreciated the fact it was a girls night out and passed by often enough but did not hover. Expansive menu meant there was something for everyone and we had it all! Wine, salad, pasta and dessert! I enjoyed the evening... More

The Bean Bar in Westdale has an extensive menu and always 20 or so different--and amazing--desserts in the cake display case. We enjoyed the curry chicken and the sweet potato quesadilla, both very tasty dishes. I have been told by regulars that everything on the menu is fantastic but there is something odd with the Moroccan stew.
