Great breakfast place and very popular because it is comfortable and feels like home, with sofas and second-hand books too. The food is good, especially breakfast. Good soups and sandwiches too and home-baked goodies.

Of course the majority of the shops happened to be closed on Sunday of labor day weekend and that lead me to In the Beantime. Looks can be deceiving as this cafe is much bigger on the inside than what you may think just walking or driving by. There's nice decor on the inside and it seems that you'll find many locals here which is a good indication of loyalty and great products. They had a great assortment of drinks and food at a reasonable price and In the Beantime is a nice alternative to Starbucks when one isn't available.

Been living in Ladysmith for almost 2 years and have frequented In the Beantime a few times. Each time I order the food is very very good. Try the beef dip. I order it minus the horseradishy mayo. Delish! (With salad and house dressing). I find service is meh. Needs improving to make it more memorable. Also, not open late enough in the evenings.

I am a long time resident of Ladysmith and have enjoyed the fabulous home-made style dishes at the Beantime Café since they opened. They have fabulous specials everyday and their portions are substantial; I almost always end up taking half my meal home. They also make great speciality coffees, lattes, etc.
