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.

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. Thank you Green Up for making this resource available.
