Very good food, Nice atmosphere
Great sandwiches and lunch fare. Quirky decor and great staff. A fun spot for a snack or a full meal. Coffee is delicious, and the menu is big and creative. Fun locale for Tots, with a mini bookcase and couch area. A work-in cafe for locals. Great spot for stopping on your way along TransCanada-1, or a daily hang if you're in the area. More...
Very cute outdoor patio, great Americanos, some excellent little desserts.
Friendly and spunky 'barrista.'
Great place for lunch! I had the chichen quesadilla with mango and hubby had the chicken clubhouse. Both came with a great organic green salad.
Great food and serve
That make a proper cappuccino!
Such a great old building, comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff, with tasty coffee and treats.
Awesome place. Service is super friendly and the coffee is so great. Had the breakfast burrito, was so good.
Simply amazing eggs benny. Large sizes small prices. Can’t say enough about the great tastes, prices and atmosphere. Definitely a hidden gem.
Amazing food! Will definitely be back!
Awesome experience!! Great food, pleasant environment!!
Delicious coffee and baked goods. Very friendly staff. Lovely place to visit with a very dear friend xoxoxo
Very tasty food, I got the Santa Fe chicken wrap and it was delicious. Service was friendly and relatively fast.
Love this place. Amazing coffee
First time visitor. The place was full of locals which is usually a good sign. The decor was awesome, filled with local artist work that is available to purchase. Nice to see them returning the patronage. Not to load, easy to carry on a conversation whether it be a friend or informal business meeting. I will be back. More...
Good breakfast and coffee
Great food, great service, great atmosphere
Great beat salad..check it out you won't be disappointed
They made the best heuvos rancheros I've ever had last week (a dish I've ordered MANY times!). Such a great place that really takes care of their guests and is a wonderful presence in our little community! Heck, they even made a special named after me after playfully suggesting they do so. We've been fans for years but wanted to say a huge thank you and good luck for hopefully many years to come! We love In The Bean Time! Always a great experience More...
My new favourite ladysmith midday coffee stop. Great americano. Nice deco
Food here is good. It's kinda self serve but they do have table service. You still have to order at the counter but they will deliver your food to the table. It's obvious that it's a popular place as seating was an issue More...
They make amazing sandwiches
Very quaint, old school building with a very fresh breakfast menu..
Awesome curry wrap.
Great coffee reasonable price!
Fabulous food and relaxing environment.
Great coffee in a nice setting.
Perfect environment to stop by regularly this is a place you must stop at if you are driving threw Ladysmith
Great espresso and food, cozy atmosphere, friendly staff. The Reuben sandwich is one of the best things ever.
Really cozy warm old eatery
Always great and love the changing artwork

Great place great food
Ladysmith pillar, community owned and run shops are vital to health of the town.
Great service. Great Reuben sandwich and blueberry muffin. This was my experience the first time I visited this place. Yesterday on our way back to Victoria we stopped by again for lunch since we thought this place is halfway between Courtenay and Victoria. I ordered their lunch special of grilled scallops sandwich. That has to be the best sandwich I ever tasted. The sauce was perfect and delicious with the scallops. I would have taken a photograph but my iPhone was not available at the time. I certainly would order that sandwich again the next time we stopped there in our travel. More...
Had a great time here with my parents. Delicious food, helpful and kind staff... Found a new favourite cafe for sure!
Nice wraps getting a little pricey $1150 but they are good I like the Thai wrap.
Cozy, good food and drinks :)
Friendly with good food. Got the Reuben and the BLT and it was amazing!
They have awesome red espresso you need to try. The food took really long, but that is my only complaint.
Good place with a nixe atmosphere good cheesecake
In the Bean Time was a very pleasant surprise for a breakfast option for a hotel I stayed at a close distance away. A meal of two eggs a selection of breakfast meats and a great coffee. Presentation was wonderful and I really appreciated the gluten free bread. It was clear it was a popular restaurant as we were almost in a line up to get in. Full menu available great value for breakfast. If we didn't have a coupon it was a great meal at under$5 . Service was good food was great. More...
Great food, great staff, excellent value all the way around!
Good food. And quickly. Good coffee as well.
I enjoyed my eggs and gluten-free toast, thanks for the option! A cozy, warm neighborhood restaurant filled with laughter , chatter and local art!
Great food! Good service! Lovely atmosphere
Good prices, great wraps and sandwiches, and good coffee. Can't ask for much more from a cafe.
Good food, coffee and gluten free choices.
Lovely little coffee shop. Even has chess boards for the customers
Good food with friendly service and a comfy atmosphere. Found a peice of plastic wrapper in salad though.
Rustic style with local art displayed on the walls. Nice menu. I suggest the thai noodle wrap.
Good coffee and good food.
Stopped here for a late but light lunch. Good selection, especially the recommendations from the lone staffer out front. We enjoyed this place

Busy! Friendly staff and great food! Unfortunately I've had my drink order mixed up every time I've been there, but still delicious
Live entertainment and dinner was great.
Bean there. Its a treat.
Typical small town cafe with reasonable food, good coffee and furniture that has seen better days.
Great specialty coffees and classic bistro menu. Breakfast, bennies; lunch, soups and sandwich, specials. Lots of variety and all very good. A Ladysmith gem.
Super cute little coffee shop. Love it.
Medium roast - one of better flavours I know :)
Great food, drink & coffee choices.

Very cozy with warm and friendly staff. My Americano was rich and flavorful.
Cute & cozy cafe! Went for lunch today and the food, atmosphere and staff were 110%! We will definitely be back �
First timer to in the Beantime! I will go back! The sandwiches were sooo delicious and the atmosphere was nice, service was friendly. They were the only ones open on easter weekend, thank you because I was starving! More...

Visiting from the mainland, this little gem is right across the street from our motel. Yummy food, and a little table full of toys to keep the kids occupied. My son enthusiastically declared that they were the "yummiest pancakes ever!" Thumbs up! More...
Great coffee and atmosphere- friendly staff. Will be back!
I join Liz Engelberger in recommending In the Beantime Cafe for your next event. Their Christmas dinner at the Cassidy Mobile Home Park was one of the best I've ever attended. Smooth service, delicious food, friendly staff, and well-received by all participants. More...
The Beantime Cafe was hired to cater the Christmas dinner for the Cassidy mobile home park. Wow what can I say !! out of this world. Incredible food, cooked to perfection, every tray was replaced before it was empty, food was hot, and all our dishes and cutlery was cleaned and the kitchen was left immaculate. Cam and his wife went above and beyond to make this evening a great success and people where very pleased. Personally I highly recommend the Beantime Cafe for their professionalism, competitive price and excellent food. Thank you and Merry Christmas More...
Came here for breakfast, had the classic benny, one of the best I've ever had. Had an Americano and it was very good. Mel had a breakfast sandwich called the morning glory and it was excellent as well. Would recommend this place as it was excellent food and service. More...
Every time passing by Ladysmith, was an opportunity to have a coffee and soup and sandwich.....Great soup and sandwich and coffee.....lovely atmosphere and staff...
Great restaurant for the Island traveller.
Wonderful coffee shop, with really great food too. Try the pancakes, but plan to share them, they're huge.
Good food heritage building and some seating out side
Always good strong coffee.
Wonderful friendly staff. Great food.
Nice place. Good food. The staff could be a little more enthusiastic tho ! Not expensive and free wifi which is always a bonus.
Great coffee. Great service. Great food.
Wonderful open coffee shop and lunch/breakfast place. Baristas are friendly, fast, and well trained; atmosphere was nice and the food was good. The chicken quesadilla is my favourite menue item so far, and the dirty chai my favourite drink. More...
I frequently stop by for a coffee and a snack.
Outstanding Service! Great coffee and you must try their "Island Salad"!!! Fantastic!
Good Americano, interesting surroundings, looks like a local fave.
Cozy little cafe
Great coffee and breakfast place on the way to Nanaimo! They have Nanaimo bars!!! I'm looking forward to the eggs and hash browns(potato cut)!

Amazing food, amazing drinks, amazing staff and owners and a cozy atmosphere! It's our fav spot hands down in Ladysmith.
Great food, yummy hot drinks and an awesome atmosphere. One of my top picks for breakfast and lunch!!
The food, staff, beverages and atmosphere made for a perfect Saturday afternoon in Ladysmith. Our first time visiting and we are definitely coming back, everyone was so friendly so our daughter and the FOOD was just immaculate. Thanks for existing, Beantime!
Excellent food and atmosphere. My kids loved the grilled cheese.
Amazing spot lovely sandwiches and staff.

Great staff, Great food! Everyone we take there loves it.
Excellent food and good atmosphere! A great lunch spot!!
The service might be slow (because they're so POPULAR!)... but we're all on island time so chill, look at the art, edit your cell photos, check out a few neighbouring shops or read the book that you should carry everywhere for just such moments. The coffee is the best you've had all week, the breakfasts are hearty and healthy and the baked goods are delish. Every neighbourhood needs an inclusive cozy and friendly coffee shop like this one! More...
Kudos to the owner of In the Beantime. I called him on July 7th to explain about the poor service we received on Father's Day. He was most apologetic. The rude server no longer works there and he asked that we try him again. Gave us a very generous gift certificate for the restaurant. He stepped up to the plate by correcting the problem and we will try him again. Thanks. Dated July 11/16 4 of us just tried to have breakfast there. Asked the service staff why it was so slow and was met with rudeness. I went up to the counter 3 times to see where our order was. Again rudeness. Finally, when I told them I wanted a refund the rude server told me our order was ready. Went back to the table, we waited another 5 minutes, no order. In total we waited over 55 minutes for our food and finally got a refund. Asked the server what her name was and she said "I don't have to tell you my name". We will let the owners know of our bad experience. We won't go back. More...
The food, the atmosphere, the staff and the entertainment were all terrific. Great time, we'll be back!
Great local place! Have a wrap...it is enough to share. We had the Thai. The coffee is good, the folks are friendly and the art around on the walls great too. Thanks folks for a good lunch!
Great food...great place to meet a friend for coffee....awesome London Fogs, actually the best ones I've ever had. I also love the veggie wrap for lunches.
Best. Breakfast. Ever. If Campbell served this every day I wouldn't need a kitchen.
If I'm in Ladysmith.. this is where I'm getting coffee.
Awesome place! I'm eating there right now! ;)
The food and coffee is excellent the atmosphere is inviting and the people are friendly
We were passing through on our way from Campbell River to Victoria, after visiting family up north, when we stumbled upon this place. Coffee was good and we had a tasty muffin too. Great rest stop on our road trip! More...
My Favorite Coffee stop. Great food served by great people!
