Did you know that the Green Bean gets our bagels from Windsor’s only supplier of traditional, Montreal style bagels? The Earnest Bagel Company makes traditional bagels in the Montreal style, rolling each one by hand, boiling them in honey water and baking them to perfection. The bagels contain all natural ingredients and no preservatives. We’ve been serving these bagels for awhile now and we couldn’t be happier with the quality that Tristan and his team produce.

If you want to see the bagel baking process in action head over to South Windsor in the morning and stop by their retail location at 3041 Dougall Avenue. They are open Tuesday to Friday 8AM – 5PM and Saturday 8AM – 1PM. If have questions you can reach them at 519.997.7432.

We currently serve plain, sesame seed and cinnamon raisin bagels at the cafe but we’re so excited about bagels right now that we are looking to expand our selection. In addition to our regular offerings, all this week we will be offering everything, poppyseed, whole wheat and pumpernickel bagel and asking for your help to choose the next great Green Bean bagel.

So from February 3-8 drop by either of our the cafes, and pick a large coffee and a toasted, buttered bagel for only $3! Vote for your favourite bagel and you could win a dozen bagels courtesy of Earnest Bagel Company.

May the best bagel win!

Green Bean Presents: Community Christmas Dinner 2013!

Posted: December 3rd, 2013 | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Community Christmas Dinner

The Green Bean Cafe is excited to announce our second annual Community Christmas Dinner! Last year was such a wonderful time that we couldn’t help but do it again. Over the past year our family has grown to include a second location on Ouellette Avenue and we’ve  added our very own Green Bean baby! The neighbourhood where we work is also the neighbourhood where we live and raise our family.

We know that every year in our neighbourhood hundreds of students stick around the university campus for the holidays. In addition, there are many families and individuals around us looking for new ways to celebrate the Christmas season. The Community Christmas Dinner is our idea to draw these two groups of people together and unite them around a traditional Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings.

The dinner will be held on Christmas Day (December 25) at noon. We’ll be eating turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, squash and delicious assortment of desserts.

If you’re an International Student this meal is for you! We really encourage you either take part in the International Student Centre‘s Host for the Holidays program or come over to the cafe and join us for dinner. It’s a great way to experience an authentic Canadian holiday! If you need it, we will have vegetarian options for you to enjoy.

Plan on bringing kids? Perfect! Christmas Dinner is no fun without kids running around. We’ll have some special treats for the kids and we’ll be playing a Christmas movie after the dinner.

We’re also excited to announce that this dinner is a totally free gift to our neighbourhood. To reserve your seat, all you have to do is put down a $5 fully refundable deposit. The $5 deposit helps us confirm our numbers for the meal. When you arrive for the dinner, the $5 is refunded to you! If you pay a deposit and don’t show up for the dinner, thanks, you’ve helped cover our cost! You can register and pay for the deposit online  (just scroll to the bottom of this page) or you can also get your ticket (and pay your deposit) anytime at the cafe.

To help make this all happen, we’re working with a great group of volunteers, the special help from our neighbours, University Community Church. If you are interested in volunteering  interested in volunteering for this event please look here for our complete volunteer package.

If you would like to register for the dinner, head to the Community Christmas Dinner event page and fill out the online form. There you will be able to register for the dinner and even pay the deposit online.

We love our neighbourhood and we’re so excited to be able to give back a little bit of all the good things that you have all done for us!
