Train Station Bike & Bean
The Train Shop Bike & Bean in Tantallon is a café and bike shop located
in the historic French Village Train Station, circa 1901.
We know you'll
like it here. The Bike & Bean is the only South Shore bike shop located
between the city and Lunenburg, and it's perfectly situated along the Rails-to-Trails
paths running between Halifax and Hubbards.
We sell cycling equipment and
clothing from the best companies. Families hoping to enjoy a safe, secure
bike ride will be able to rent tag-alongs and burley trailers so they can
explore one of the province's loveliest regions with no worries. Cyclists
who love circling the Peggy's Cove or Aspotogan loops will be able to leave
friends nearby, and share a drink at the end of the trip. The Bike & Bean
will also appeal to ATVers and hikers who love the Great Outdoors, but
it will also be just the thing for locals who want nothing more than to
curl up with a good book and a latté in comfortable, historic surroundings.
Of course, an active lifestyle always creates a big hunger, and the Bike
and Bean has you covered. The company was founded by Marilou Levangie, who had more than 20 years as a restaurateur in
Nova Scotia's best dining rooms. Marilou brought a love of life's finer things to the Bike & Bean, and the business prospered, becoming a Tantallon landmark.
Sadly, Marilou was taken from us in 2012, and we honor her memory by trying to do our best for you.
We continue to serve gourmet
coffee, in the Italian style, accompanied by delicious panini, soups, and
sweets. We're confident that you'll be impressed.
We have a keen attention
to detail. The Bike & Bean is now run by Marilou's business partner Dana
Gallant, and manager Heidi Chance, with the same dedication and commitment that has garnered a customer
retention rate for his bike touring company — Pedal and Sea Adventures — that is three-times the industry average.
The Train Station Bike and Bean — when you're
easily satisfied with the very best.
