Service, coffee and food always excellent. Been here numerous times and always make a point to stop for coffee when here. The food is great as well.

This "coffee" shop is a good alternative to Tim's with unique salads and sandwiches. Homemade soups, wide selection of sandwiches combined with great friendly service and one of a kind atmosphere and surroundings, including a Moose over the fireplace and a canoe hanging from the ceiling to name a couple artifacts. Close to the waterfront as well. Worth a visit... More

This is a great way to start the day, quirky, welcoming and very good coffee, it's everything that the chains aren't. I visited a couple of times rather than bother with hotel coffee, and it was great, I can see that they have a solid regular morning crowd (always a good sign). Definitely return on my next stay in Halifax

My husband and I really enjoy going here. We try to go one Saturday morning per month as a treat. Love their cinnamon rolls and breakfast egg sandwiches.

Have had breakfast here a few times and every time I have not been disappointed. Their breakfast cookies are amazing, full of seeds and oatmeal etc = very filling. Also good are the blueberry/cranberry scones and the cinnamon buns. This cafe has a very laid back and relaxing atmosphere.

This visit I had just a regular coffee...it was a regular coffee. The "apple cinnamon pinwheel", however, was absolutely delicious !! Every baked item in the display case was calling to me. Not an extensive selection of items on the blackboard behind the counter, but everything being served, looked fresh and enticing. Next visit, I am going to have the... More
