Season 2024

For the first time in our cafe history, we are thrilled to be open in 2 locations!

You can find us seasonally along the waterfront in Millennium Park from May to Thanksgiving (your cottage in the heart of the city); and now year-round in the beautiful Canadian Canoe Museum.

No admission is required to pay us a visit in the Canoe Museum atrium – which holds 30 seats indoors and another 30 on the lake facing patio. We like to joke we’re the cafe with a museum in it!

Spring Momentum

With our Millennium Park location set to open May 1st, and our new second location at the beautifully constructed Canadian Canoe Museum set to open for business on May 13, Grand Opening on May 31st, we are in the midst of hiring new staff to join our existing team.

If the busy cafe environment sounds appealing, you have interest in the food service and tourism industries; you have experience or training as a server, barista or cook; have your Safe Food Handlers and even your Smart Serve; and can recognize the value of working as a team-member; then March is your month to submit your application (resume and cover letter) to silverbeancafe@gmail.com. Preference given to those with availability as of May into at least the fall.

Questions? Email Dan at the address above.

Update: Our staffing team is set to go for the start of the season. Thanks for your interest!!


And just like that, our 20th season is coming to a close as of Oct 15th. Thanks for making the beautiful patio even more beautiful! And a huge shout out to our hard working staff, 30 in total, who make the Bean possible.

While this location enters hibernation, stay tuned for our official soft opening date in early spring of our 2nd location at The Canadian Canoe Museum! The grand opening is set for May 12, 2023. We’ll be open a month or 2 before before to get to know the space and work out all the kinks. Looking forward to offering Bean hospitality on 2 waterfronts in Peterborough-Nogojiwanong!

Much love, The Bean Team
