We were looking for a good old diner that serves some good home cooking. We found this place and we were expecting a good meal. I would have to say our brunch was ok! I had a breakfast poutine, and I know they can be really good. This one was one note, there wasn't a lot of flavour. My wife... More

Breakfast poutine....... unreal !!!!! 😳 I love Ardmore so much ❤️❤️❤️ Always a great place for breakfast! I love their hours, the fact they open early is so convenient for me & my husband as we are both shift workers and this place is perfect after night shifts before one of us heads to work !

A Halifax institution whether it is for weekend breakfast or an inexpensive lunch or supper. Good old fashioned food just like your mum would make. The Eggs Benedict, Hot Turkey sandwich and homemade burgers cannot be beaten! The service is excellent! These waitresses are some of the best in the city, friendly, hard working and professional. One of my favourite... More

The food here is good and it is cheap. Great early breakfast available - open at 6am. Home style cooking, real milk shakes, homemade deserts - all great and reasonably priced Have never ordered something that I didn't like. The restaurant is really "quaint" floor tiles are missing here and there. Vinyl seats may have duct tape but ignore the... More

What an amazing little diner. There were 5 or so people waiting when we came in the door, but we had a table within minutes. The service was fast and friendly. Once we placed our orders, the food was literally at our place within 5 minutes!! Tasty brunch. The prices are amazing, most expensive brunch menu (which I purchased) was... More

Great Value! Diner style place. Big nice breakfast cooked to perfection. Fast service. Sometimes packed to capacity, sometimes we are the only ones. Servers know their business and take a minute to be charming when there's a minute. I cant wait to go back!

It was my first time at this restaurant and I enjoyed a delicious brunch. The Eggs Benedict served with hash brows were delicious and the price could not be beat.

The Ardmore Tea Room is an iconic spot that has been a mainstay for locals for many decades. It has an unassuming location and decore with very basic but pleasant service. The booths are a little cramped perhaps constructed of a bygone era when the average girth was a little slimmer. Don't expect gourmet food just basic hoemstyle cooking. In... More

As a vegetarian, I usually have the french toast or poached eggs with toast which are consistently good. The other day, for lunch, I had the sweet potato and bean burger. It may have been a little dry without the accompanying tzatziki sauce.The decision to include the sauce raised the status of the burger to very good. Saturday and Sunday... More
