Bean Counter have thought of everything for everyone, and their menu is no exception – photogenic sweet waffles for a special treat, hearty all-day breakfasts to keep you going, gluten-free variations and plenty of healthy vegetarian options, a varied kids menu and amazing house-made muffins, cakes and biscuits to top off a lovely afternoon tea.
