Train Station Bike & Bean

Bike and Bean

The Train Station 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 perfectly situated along the Rails-to-Trails paths running between Halifax and Hubbards.

Of course, an active lifestyle always creates a big hunger, and the Bike and Bean has you covered.

We serve gourmet coffee, in the Italian style, accompanied by delicious panini, soups, and sweets. We're confident that you'll be impressed.

We rent bicycles and 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 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.

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 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.
