So nice to find a quaint little cafe down the hill from the main strip. Had a pumpkin spice latte that was pretty good. My only suggestion would be to ask them to make the blended coffees extra hot. Ours were lukewarm. Coffee was delicious...More

A nice place to stop by for breakfast. The Eggs Benedict was a good choice and hit the spot. Service was quick and the coffee was good.

We had coffee and cake about 10.30 one morning. Friendly laid-back atmosphere and helpful staff, but the pace of life moves slowly here. Lots of locals enjoying coffee , tea and eats.

I attend meetings in Ladysmith at least 3-4 times a year. It is my custom to always have my breakfast at the Beantime. Food is very good, staff very friendly. Yumm, eggs benny and a good cup of coffee.

Bad weather and power outages elsewhere led us to Beantime for a Sunday morning breakfast. We're glad that's what happened as all four meals plus the coffee were exceptional. The eggs benedict deserves special mention. The place was packed, but service was quick and friendly.

Chose Beantime as it is one of very few open on Sundays in Ladysmith; so glad we did. Went for breakfast but missed the cutoff time but we were still able to get the breakfast sandwiches. Hence the title to this, how different fresh tastes...More
