There aren’t many coffee shops in Markham that aren’t Second Cup, Starbucks, and Tim Hortons… and now there is Bean Around the World, a coffee shop from British Columbia that opened its first location here.
Bean Around the World
Location: 5762 Highway 7 E, Unit 3
Hours: Monday to Thursday: 7:30am to 6pm
Friday: 7:30am to 9:30pm
Saturday: 8am to 5pm
Sunday: 9am to 4:30pm
Atmosphere: Relaxed and spacious
Service: Friendly and helpful
Hidden away at the plaza on Highway 7, the decor has more of a personal touch than other chain coffee shops, and isn’t as heavily branded.
I ordered a London Fog and a cinnamon roll, which was huge. Please see the above comparison to my sunglasses…
The food and drinks were delicious and I appreciated the more relaxed atmosphere. There are plenty of large tables and free WiFi for those that want to get some work done. I’ll definitely be back.
Update: I’ve been back here several times and always enjoy the atmosphere here. Sometimes there is live music and meetings so it does get a little noisy. The staff and other patrons here are always friendly and I love having this coffee shop in Markham.
