      The Beanery is a popular place on campus to get coffee or to hang out with your friends. I have visited this coffee shop many times on my way to my friends’ places in Fairview or Acadia residences at UBC. Even though it’s kind of hidden in the middle of Fairview, it’s a busy place during the school year, often full of students drinking coffee or studying at one of the many tables upstairs. On the main

      floor there are more tables, a pool table, and a piano. There are newspapers available too. And there are tables outside on a patio, but there aren’t a lot of those.

      It’s a coffee shop aas opposed to a full service restaurant so you place your order at the counter. Besides coffee, you can get ice cream (in a freezer case), hot chocolate, sandwiches, and soups. With your drink or food order, you get a little container of ...

      • chocolate covered almonds, which is a nice treat (although it wasn’t so great the one time I went there with a friend who is allergic to nuts). They have daily meals which are actual meals like lasagna.

        I usually grab a hot chocolate, which is really good here. The whipped cream on top is nice and chocolatey, too. The only kind of soup I’ve had here was the Tunisia, which was good.

        For value, this place

        is okay. Not as economical as you might expect since most of the clientele is students but you do get a lot of food. And the food is good quality although it is made off site. They reheat things for you and press the paninis, that sort of thing. The panini I had last time was really good. And it was big enough that I only ate half of it.

        The service is regular - polite and reasonably quick.
