Always friendly welcome and local place. Good place to stop and grab lunch or a coffee without the feel of a corporate chain. Love these types of places where the food is good and service is warm.

This little cafe has that "just like home" feel to it. There are tables and chairs of course but also a nice sitting area by the window on the couch or wing chair. The owner has a huge selection of books to choose from and many times I see people sitting reading the newspaper and relaxing. Personally, I usually go... More

If you want a quaint, relaxing quiet lunch in a comfortable environment, this is the place for you. It's not very large, but has comfy couches, and a vast selection of books to choose from while you enjoy a selection of freshly ground coffee. Lunch is made fresh daily with a featured special. Very pleasant owners that will serve you... More

Have visited this cafe numerous times. Love the secluded location and the coziness of this little cafe. Good variety of breakfast/lunch offerings and so far, everything I've tried has been delicious. Friendly atmosphere. Small patio outside but not inviting. Overlooks parking lot.

Always a cheery greeting from Frank, the owner when you walk into this quaint little coffeehouse! A cup of delicious coffee and tasty, homemade lunches! The borscht is one of my favourites! An abundance of sandwich choices too! Also, if you need some quiet time, with your tea, just pick up a book from one of the shelves and take... More

If you hate the big coffee conglomerates and want something different, head over to On The Bean. Great coffee and eats, nifty atmosphere, comfy chairs, and tons of books to read. They just celebrated 20 years. Support your local indy shop! You'll love it.

This is a great little cafe. It is cozy and relaxed and the owner Frank is a great guy. His soups are fantastic as are his sandwiches. If you are looking for a nice place to have a relaxing cup of coffee with a friend this is the place.

I love to support local businesses and this is one of my favourite to support! Excellent coffee, specialty coffees and lattes, nice fresh baked goods, kind and friendly owners/staff who always manage a smile and graciousness even when it's really busy. The interior is cozy, quirky and always makes you feel welcome...never rushed. I've enjoyed many hours over the years... More

I have been going to On The Bean for quite a while now 15+ years. Through an ownership change and the quality is always great. I enjoy stopping in for a cup of Americano and catching up on my reading.

We were looking for a new place to grab a latte and decided to try On the Bean. It's a very small cute cafe that serves coffee, tea, baked goods, soup, and more. Prices were decent for an independently run cafe. The lattes and chocolate fudge muffin were good, as was the service.
