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.

We had lunch at Bean bar on a weekday since it is close to McMaster. First we had the fried cauliflower which was blunt. For main I had the beef stroganoff which was a awful. The beef was all fat, the cheapest cut and the sauce was lacking taste. They were nice enough to replace it for me with the... More

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.
