This listing has the following ratings and reviews:
"Used to be a good place to meet the art community, with new ownership has since become too loud for conversation, and lots of obnoxious smokers. When I asked to turn the music down, I was treated like a nuisance by staff, was sworn at by a smoker sitting in the non smoking section outside, management refuses to address these issues. Most of the regulars left to go to Kawa 1333-8 st s.w."
"We stop at Caffe Beano every day. Coffee and atmosphere are great, we love it, but unfortunately we cannot say the same of bagels, it will ve nice if they can do something about it."
"This place has been improved since Janice Beaton has taken it over, with renovations, and I hear they are getting a second machine to cut the ridiculous waiting lines. Vut the amount of smokers hanging outside the front door is STILL awful. They are sitting on the clearly marked "No Smoking" benches near the doorway-even though a sign mentions recent bylaw visits regarding this matter. TIme for another bylaw visit? Also, these smokers SO CROWD the sidewalk, it is impossible for pedestrians to squeeze by on the remaining sidewalk... Bylaw needs to look if the benches neeed to be moved back, so the sidewalk easement is actually usable.In the meantime, I'm off to nearby Kawa... much nicer place, and a much nicer crowd."
"FINALLY! Beano__s has "No Smoking" sings on its doors. For the past few months the place looked like a homeless sheleter with all the bums hanging outside the door smoking. Must have been a bylaw officer by. :-)"
"Beano was our favourite coffee hangout for 14 years. Unfortunately, the quality has gone down since Janice purchased the shop 1 year ago. Prices are up, space is dirty, and staff (not all) don__t seem to care about the quality they are producing. Fortunately we have found a replacement coffee shop, and our $3000 per year coffee habit will be spent there instead."
"Best Latte I have ever had! Vibrant and friendly cafe. BUT, they need to fix the front end, as the cafe is so popular that you have to wind your way back through the lineup to get to the cream, sugar etc.!"
"Top notch espresso machine.Crema a little loose but ok, maybe the barista_s fault.Enjoyable but not like the coffee scene in Victoria or Toronto"
"the place serves the BEST coffee, but the sidewalk outside is often littered, and has too many smokers (and they_re all by the door, in violation of the city_s smoking ordinance). Doesn_t the new owner (Janice Beaton of cheese fame) care about exterior appearances?"
