Cork & Bean - 8 Simcoe Street North

Oshawa is home to one of two Cork & Bean locations. If you like sipping on coffee in an aesthetically pleasing environment, this is the place for you. Cork & Bean offers a variety of coffees, along with a rustic atmosphere to sit and sip in. Every inch of Cork & Bean adds to the space's chill vibes, from the wooden tables to the artistic stone walls. Events such as live music and open mic nights can be found at the Cork & Bean. It's also a unique and relaxing place to have a business meeting if you’re looking for a more casual atmosphere. We suggest trying an Irish Whiskey Coffee when you stop by, or one of their many craft beers if you’re looking for something a little stronger than coffee.
