We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the treaty and traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabeg. We offer our gratitude to the First Peoples for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. May we honour those teachings.
Millennium Park Location
Location: Our café is located near the intersection of King Street and Water Street in Peterborough, Ontario. We are located in Millennium Park down the path towards the river. We don’t have a mailing address at this location but often refer to 130 King Street if people are trying to locate us on Google Maps.
Millennium Park is where we are and much of who we are as a café. It is a park that runs along the river with a beautiful trail stretching along it. Millennium Park skirts the east side of downtown and buffers the city from the Otonabee River. Peterborough sits on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe (Ojibway) and was originally named and known as Nogojiwanong (place at the end of rapids).
Cycle to the cafe! Most trails lead to us, and we have lots of bicycle parking available. The Trans-Canada Trail (now called the Great Trail) runs right next to the Silver Bean Café and we’re honoured to be part of it. Check out these Peterborough Bike Trail Maps for ideas on directions to take or routes to explore. We are officially a Bike Friendly Business and can be found as a destination on Ontario by Bike. Check out this fantastic 85-100km 2 day itinerary which includes our cafe as a pit stop for lunch!
Our patio is dog friendly! If your pet is socialized, they are welcome. We try to keep a supply of T-R-E-A-T-S on hand. Just ask at the ice cream window!
Canoe Museum Location
Phone: coming soon! Check out our hours
Location: Opening May 2024, our second cafe is located in the beautiful Canadian Canoe Museum at 2077 Ashburnham Drive in Peterborough, Ontario. Our neighbours included Beavermead Park, Eastgate Memorial Park, Lock 20, and the Trent-Severn Waterway headquarters office of Canada Parks.
From the lakeside of Little Lake, you’ll will see our patio and easiest cafe access point into the stunning Canadian Canoe Museum. The front foyer is public space not requiring admission and is open for visitors and locals to enjoy. We have both indoor and outdoor seating options with fireside settings. This second location is liquor licensed and offers a similar yet tailored to the setting menu.
Cycle from cafe to cafe! Once again, most trails lead to us, and the Canoe Museum is a bike friendly location. The Trans-Canada Trail (now called the Great Trail) runs right next to the Silver Bean Café and we’re honoured to be part of it. Check out these Peterborough Bike Trail Maps for ideas on directions to take or routes to explore. Have lunch at one cafe and cycle over to the other for dessert!
Lock 20 is open every season from the May long weekend until Thanksgiving. If you’ve docked your boat near the lock, feel free to walk over for breakfast, lunch or a drink with a view.
