What an amazing meal. Menu is small but mighty. Don’t expect the basic meat and potatoes here. Amazing Curry has a profound depth of flavours. They had fried banana blossoms on the rice which may be my new favourite thing! Deserts? Vienna cheesecake was probably...the best thing I ever ate. Pana cotta was also amazing, and I need a jar of the preserves it was served with. Gin and chef were amazing hosts and made it an almost family feel! Reservations are limited to Friday and Saturday nights, so get there before word gets around about how amazing this food is!More

Delicious food, some of the best I've ever had, anywhere. The dinner service is incredible, they have a world class chef here! The flavours are out of this world and perfectly balanced.

Great place to get a latte and I tried their Italian pasta for the first time and it had a supple texture, laced with well-seasoned beef in a sauce that didn't overpower the palate but added a layer of richness to the meal. Though I...didn't pair the meal with alcohol ( which they have in abundance) the latte served as a good combo. If your looking for fine dishes and a chilled ambiance, Dream Cafe and Bistro is the placeMore

My daughter brought me to this cafe and I just fell in love with their fresh baked goods! We had gone just after lunch and were lucky to buy the last of their huge cinnamon buns...to die for!

During the covid times, Dreams of Beans has adapted to make enjoying your coffee the safest and most enjoyable experience possible. Counter service is fast and friendly. There is limited seating in a quiet atmosphere. The food is good.

Jin Chahana served me a delicious espresso and it was a pleasure to get to chat coffee with him. The operation is very fresh and Jin has a vast amount of knowledge about coffee. It was a pleasure. Second best espresso in Peterborough, aha.
