My wife and I were walking on Main St toward The Tall And Small when I decided to stop for a haircut. My wife said she'd bring a latté back to me, but when I was finished in the barber's chair she still hadn't returned. I walked on to the café where I found her still waiting for our coffees.... More

The towns cafe. The freshly baked pastries isn't the only element The Tall and Small Cafe serve. On call at any time are wraps and sandwiches. I noticed a peanut butter with jalapanos and sprouts on the chalk menu. I placed my order for a coconut desert - kind of like a danish. Remember the inside of a donut is... More

But if you get more then a few people the service is so slow...... Did not go back for any lunch as heard the service was even slower at lunch time. But liked the... More

Several locals really liked this place so we went in with high anticipation. Food is so-so, and they wouldn't take any credit card but a local debit card. Had a pesto turkey sandwich which was a little dry. Won't return.

I have been going to this restaurant for 5+ years. I usually get the southwest chicken wrap, which comes with a delicious always fresh side salad. It usual cost less then $10 bucks unless I get one of their awesome "make-it-your-way" smoothies. The lentil walnut burger inspired the title of this review, its simply does not make sense that it...

My husband and I were holidaying in Nova Scotia for a couple of weeks and we stopped in here for breakfast one morning. They have by far the best coffee in town and an interesting selection of salads, sandwiches and soups. They also have amazing baked treats, such as the cinnamon rolls and incredible pumpkin cookies. The place is airy... More

This place was essential to me surviving my undergraduate degree at StFX.. such great food at such great prices! Every time I visit Antigonish after moving away I make sure I visit this place. The lentil walnut burger and east Indian wrap are my favourites.. and veggie chilli Fridays! Their cookies are also to die for. Thank you Tall and... More

I have to say, i have been reluctant to go into the Tall and Small, because my hipster cred is really low, but was convinced to give it a shot by a friend of mine for lunch the other day. The anti hipster in me was screaming run, but the foodie in me was blown away by all the great... More
