Bean Counter Cafe is beloved by locals around the northeast Melbourne suburbs, who must realise how lucky they are to have a reliable go-to in the neighbourhood. Bean Counter dutifully repays this custom at Railway Place in Fairfield by being about as welcoming and thoughtful for guests as you can imagine a cafe to be – they have the daily newspaper, there are wheelchair ramps and a disabled toilet, a changing table for tiny ones, kids menu, toys and a chalkboard for little ones, bike racks for the active, even a dog bowl and tying station for the canines. 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.

Always a pleasure. Great food. Accessible and great parking options.
A relaxed time spent with family and young children in the courtyard area - perfect. Meals were very nice and no complaints whatsoever about the attentive staff.
