The Lucky Bean

Our Sunday drive this week was to Montague, and a first visit to The Lucky Bean Café on Main Street.

We’d been in the building before, back in the days when it was more french fries than flat whites; in its new incarnation it’s gone full-on third wave. I had a solid coffee, Oliver a solid London Fog.

We came back to town the long way, via Caledonia (and its sparkling new roundabout), Wood Islands (where we topped up the EV), and Brush Wharf Provincial Park (which doesn’t actually exist; more on that later).

The weather was a warm 9°C all afternoon, and it was bright and sunny (although the switch off of daylight savings time meant it got dark at 5:00 p.m.).

Aha, you've discovered my favourite new coffeeshop. Now that you've mentioned it they will be inundated with customers that happened to my business Kingfisher Outdoors when you mentioned it in the past ( time for a revisit....maybe in the spring).
I always feel like I'm a lucky bean when I'm at the lucky bean. Great place, they recently opened a second location in Stratford.
Thanks for all your good promotional pieces Peter & Oliver.

I love the idea of Sunday drives. And that's a great bowtie!

The Sunday drive is a new thing, precipitated by Oliver’s decision that if I am allowed control over the in-car playlist on Saturdays, he should be in control of the in-car playlist on Sundays.

I visited the Lucky Bean this summer. After spending a week on Boughton Bay, I'd say it's the most solid coffee place in Kings County.

Donna, I know it will be a good place if my two best sources cross-reference it. Looking forward to the future when I can try it out myself.
