Looking for a place in Sherbrooke for a cup of coffee and tea we came across Beanie's Bistro and it was (just as the other places) closed. Happily the owner came outside just before we wanted to leave again and made us coffee and tea which we drank on a sunny terrace. Just what we needed. Can not say anything... More

It is a long way from Halifax to Port Hawkesbury NS. But this trip can be made shorter by stopping in a this wonderful homey coffee shop and Bistro. What an amazing atmosphere, friendly, clean, comfortable, great food and very reasonably priced. Coffee and blueberry pie were excellent.
