About the Bean

The Silver Bean Café  has 2 locations in Peterborough / Nogojiwanong, Ontario: in Millennium Park along the Otonabee River, and (as of Spring ’24) in the Canadian Canoe Museum along Little Lake.  Since 2003, we have offered an experience of food and coffee near the water.  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
  • All locally roasted coffee and beautifully prepared espresso drinks

See our menu to take a look at the food and drink options at the café.  See our hours to plan your trip with when we are open. We get involved in a lot of community events and encourage you to join us and do the same. Come on by and say hello!
