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.

One of my favorite places to eat when I visit Hamilton. Large selection on menu for lunch and dinner or just stopping in for desert after catching a movie next door

Three of us lunched here today. Two of us were very pleased with our meal while one was disappointed with his club sandwich. I guess the impression out there is that a club sandwich is a big one while this one dwarfed another one served to us. However, the food was good and the service was outstanding. We will go... More

The restaurant is decent in everything it is -- service, food, cakes, etc. I have heard many people rave about the Bean Bar, but it definitely did not live up to its expectations especially in terms of the "cake tour" they offer... you could get the same "tour" at your local Fortinos. The food is tasty, but I was not... More

We ordered caramel crunch cake and calamari frittes. The taste was amazing and we had a great time at the restaurant.

First visit here, and we had wonderful service, food, drinks and overall had a very good experience. The waitress was excellent and kept us informed on all the specials, plus attended to us at all the right moments. The food was prompt and really interesting flavors. We had the Squash Ravioli and Beef Bolognese. We went to select a dessert,... More

I came for dinner and dessert with friends after work. I had the cauliflower, which was flavourful and well-cooked. My friends were all happy with their meals. Bean Bar is pretty consistent in terms of their dishes (I've gone quite a few times and have never had a terrible experience), although the interior could use an update and it can... More

I'd been here before for coffee about 4 years ago, but came back with a friend for dinner. I had the turkey burger with fries and it was so tasty. The craft beer was also very good. Service staff were also super friendly. Would definitely go back again.

Bean Bar is one of those restaurants we had tucked away in our minds, as a place we wanted to try some day. Always looking for something a little different, this place did not disappoint. The decor is dated, I'm assuming intentionally, because it works. The staff and service is over the top, from the moment you walk through the... More

Went for dinner with friends. Each of us ordered a different item and we all left satisfied and happy. This is a regular haunt for me. None of my friends have been there for a while. Fries and dessert were the highlight. The small taco meal was very generous and the grilled cheese was delicious. We will be back soon.

Thank Anne W
