Their beaver pies are deserving of the hype surrounding it. A rustic and tranquil restaurant. An ideal pit stop in Port Alfred.

The Bean & Olive provides excellent coffee and tasty breakfasts and lunches at reasonable prices in a friendly ambience. The service is good. A pleasant place to linger over coffee or a meal.

New owners not present...staff too busy reading the client's newspapers to offer service! Food below par, there are stunning offerings in Port Alfred, avoid.

The pies are truly a cut above the rest. We spotted it when we looked for parking to visit the antique shop across the road.

Enjoyed a really good iced coffee although it was rather smaller and more expensive than most. We didn't eat, although it looked mostly savoury pies that were available.

Met some friends who recommended the Bean and Olive. The two girls (young) who were taking orders were not really sure of what they were supposed to do. The drinks arrived and it took an age for the food to arrive, one short. We had to ask for the Hollandaise sauce for the Eggs Benedict. These were not great and not worth the wait. I had an omlette that was great: eggs done perfectly. Coffee was indifferent. Overall: not going back there

The food is hit and miss. The waiters are not friendly. Been there 3 times as I thought we just had a bad experience.. Will never go again!

It is a nice place and it has a nice atmosphere. Theu sells straws from natural material. since the plastic straws are forbidden in the EU, this might be an opportunity to expand their market

We often stop at the Bean and Olive for breakfast and I always have the smoked salmon stack. My husband always tries something different and he always loves it, but I just can’t get over that stack! I love the friendly service, the strong coffee and the laid back atmosphere.

The food is okay but the service is so poor. Everything seems very unorganized and you could be left standing there wondering whether you should sit done and wait or if your order was actually accepted. You can look at the lady and give you order and it seems like she just doesn’t want to listen to you and then proceeds to do something else instead of confirming that she has taken your order. I gave their service a few tries before writing this review thinking maybe the lady at the cash register is just having a bad day or saturated with work but that’s not the case. The service is consistently poor and it’s starting to make me not want visit this place anymore. It’s a pity because it has a lot of potential. Another coffee spot called Niche in Port Alfred seems to be getting a lot attention and I’ll be trying them out soon.

Rather disappointed to say the least, they where having a gin tasting so it was extremely loud and we waited an absolute age to be served even though we were asked 4 times if someone was looking after us. We had 4 coffees and I felt like a chicken pie, eventually the pie arrived with a cold gravy that looked like jelly and was a beef gravy that didn’t compliment the dry chicken pie. Hopefully we just caught you at a bad time.

Mouth watering food, as tasty as it is beautifully presented. Quick, friendly service. And on your way out you can fill your basket with craft beer, your favoutite pickles, olives and plenty of other home-made goodies. Definitely worthy stopping for.

The Beaver Pies history continues as this venue has carried on with the tradition of making those pies. We stopped off for a cold drink and a Craft Beer on our way to East London. They also continue to make and supply nice sized Rooster Bread which we bought for home. It has a quaint atmosphere and offers a variety of items for the passing traveler. A worthwhile stop in passing and for the locals of Port Alfred.
