Little Beetle Bistro is one of those quaint little restaurants in the middle of nowhere. What once was an old blue farmhouse has recently been converted into a cute place to dine and chat.

Surrounded by farmland, and with a business complex across the street, Little Beetle is thriving despite not being in the city centre; the parking lot is always busy, and there are always people dining in or walking out with takeout in hand.

A large dining room with a patio off to the side makes for a cozy and personal atmosphere. It’s quiet too, full of business-people and older couples enjoying a cup of coffee or a delectable dessert. The service is good, and the staff are friendly.

The menu includes coffee (plain or fancy), tea, and sodas accompanying a wide selection of soups, burgers, paninis, wraps and desserts — simple yet hearty foods. Even better, breakfast is served all day long! Breakfast for dinner? Yes, please!

Price-wise, they aren’t too bad; one person can dine for around $15 (including a drink, a menu item, and dessert).

I went with my mom and we enjoyed the chicken coconut curry soup and a beef teriyaki wrap. It was amazing! The soup had a little bit of spice to it, but it wasn’t an overwhelming curry flavour — very creamy with a nice balance of veggies, chicken, and coconut. The wrap was good too, although it needed a bit more teriyaki flavour.

As for desserts, Little Beetle has a wide selection of popular items; we tried their delicious carrot cake and a piece of  tiramisu.

All in all, this converted farmhouse is a cozy, laid-back little place that’s perfect for conversation — a great place to take your mother for a lunch date, to grab coffee with a friend, or or to share dessert with someone special. If you’re looking for a quick, homemade meal on a university student’s budget, give Little Beetle a try.
