Canada Day

We will be open on Canada Day from 9-7.

And we are grateful that we can be open at all this season! We are grateful to public health, frontline workers, decision makers, caregivers, and mindful community members. You! We are grateful to live in a country that leans towards being and doing better for the greater good. Keep leaning, Canada!

Patio Reopening

Remember patios? They’re about to make a comeback.
And we’ll help by opening ours safely tomorrow. Expect half the regular amount of tables, spaced at least 2 metres apart. Please leave the table cleaning to us. Thanks for being so patient and flexible with the cautious reopening. And a note of gratitude for our hard-working and conscientious staff!
We’re open 9-7 daily (kitchen 9-3).

What to Expect June 1st

As of June 1st, we will be open for take-out from 9-7 everyday. Kitchen will close at 3pm, with ice cream and coffee available til 7pm. Patio tables and chairs will not be available until Public Health deems it okay. Feel free to bring your own lawn chair while maintaining the 2 metres physical distancing; with no more than 5 people in a gathering as per current City of Ptbo park use restrictions mandated by the Province.

To order, lines and signs will guide and our 2nd ice cream window will serve as pick-up. Staff will strive to maintain a sanitized environment between each customer.

So whether you stroll, bike or paddle on by, we’re looking forward to summer days with you! Expect the same great taste, same great view, with some alterations for the greater health of all. Thanks for your patience and flexibility, Ptbo!

Here is our simplified opening menu; subject to change. We’re hoping you can still find a summer favourite in the mix here!

Update: Full menu is now available! See menu tab at the top

Ice Cream? Yea, that is still very available.

Opening Day in June instead of May

We’re excited this season is actually going to happen!

We’ve been working on how best to to adjust and be operational during these Covid19 times. In all our planning, we want to show care and responsibility for both the community and our employees. Thus the plan is to begin with take-out, and condensed hours and menu and build from there. We will endorse provincial recommendations for the food service industry – and you’ll quickly notice a reconfiguration of our cafe space in light of this. The green light from the province for cafe seating has yet to be given, so we hope you will make use of the options available all around beautiful Millennium Park.

June 1st is just around the corner. We look forward to seeing you!

Gift Certificates

While we can’t offer certainty of an Opening Day date for the 2020 season (due to Covid-19), we do want to promote cafe-cottage-summer dreaming. For yourself, or for another, pick up a gift certificate through either of these convenient online options: Fansaves & Givelo.

The Silver Bean & COVID19

April. Usually this cues our countdown til we open once again for the season. But this year is different, as we all have been experiencing. So we decided Opening Day will be a total surprise!! To us all.

In the challenging meantime, keep grounded, support neighbours, local business and the greater good… and one day soon enough we’ll have you over again to your cafe cottage in the city. We’ll keep you posted.

Be well, be patient, be love. Cheers.

Silver Bean Cafe & Your Event

Over the years, we have had the privilege of hosting team meetings, concerts, wedding showers, reunions, vow renewals, fundraisers, community meetings and Grandma’s birthday.

Have a unique event that requires a beautiful Peterboro-esque space? Check out our Event Room and see if fits the bill. Bright, accessible, with access to wifi, power, tables, chairs, a screen for projection, and catering services if needed.

Visit our Event Room tab or contact Dan at for more info. Cheers!

A Great Season’s Final Stretch

While we are still holding on to summer, we recognize that the weather is changing. Time on the patio now requires a sweater and a cappuccino. Below is an update on our fall hours where we’re committed to being open until October 12th, just before Thanksgiving weekend.

Thanks, Peterborough. Couldn’t be us without you.

September & October 2019
Sept 15-Oct 12 ~ 8 AM to 6 PM on weekdays; 9am to 4pm on weekends
Please note that on really nasty days towards the end of the season, we might even close at 4 PM.

Civic Holiday Day – August 5th

Every good thing needs a rest. Including the Silver Bean Cafe and our wonderful staff. This Civic Holiday, Monday August 5th, we will be closed for a Staff Day Away at the cottage. Yes, we’re a cottage – but to a different cottage. 😉 We will be back at it on the 6th, scones and all. Thanks Ptbo!
