“It's not summer until we have been here”
Review of Silver Bean Cafe - MOVED

Silver Bean Cafe
Price range: US$7 - US$12
Description: The Silver Bean Café is located in Millennium Park in Peterborough, Ontario. Since 2003, we have offered an experience of food and coffee near the Otonabee River. We call it 'your waterfront cottage in the city' because the Silver Bean Café is a community café, your cottage in the city of Peterborough. We serve: Light lunches with specialty sandwiches and salads Breakfast made fresh to order. The freshly baked scones are so good! Desserts made in-house and imported from other bakeries Fair-trade organic coffee and beautifully prepared espresso drinks See our menu to take a look at the food and drink options at the cafe. We are open from May 1st until Thanksgiving. See our hours to make sure you don't come down when we're closed! We get involved in a lot of community events and encourage you to join us and do the same. Get in touch with us and say hello.

We have a cottage nearby and if we are in Peterborough for lunch in summer we usually come here.
Great views of the park and lake from a shaded deck and patio. Good healthy food. I usually have the great bean burrito wrap with sweet potatoes. My wife says the bread in the sandwich is often a bit stale, but everything else is great.

It's all about the outdoors. There is very limited seating inside, and it is closed for the winter.

Waterfront, sunshine and a memorable setting.

Add to this good coffee and tasty treats

Easily accessible by City trails...if driving though, site parking is limited.

Staff are always courteous and respectful of regulars and new customers alike.

I felt very welcome while hanging out here. Sitting by the lake and drinking coffee was enjoyable for me!

As much as I would say I love to support this cute cafe on the water, the prices can be just outrages for the goods they serve, and they really are not worth the price for the quality. I've yet to be impressed by a beverage ordered from here. Their service also, is painfully slow!

My husband and I enjoy the water front patio experience. We usually enjoy fresh strawberry lemonade which is to die for and the grazing plate for a snack on beautiful summer days! We enjoy the boats going by and the lovely view!
