Best coffee in Dartmouth!

Zane and the crew make the best coffee drinks and serve up the most incredible pastries, which are larger than life!

Great coffee and the most amazing buttery croissants I have ever tasted! My friends and I use it as a weekend treat after a bad week.

Based on the recommendation of our walking tour guide and a waitress, we took the ferry over to Dartmouth and walked - uphill of course - to this small cafe. Their croissants are enormous and delicious - neither my husband nor I ate the whole thing there. I asked for bags and we took at least half of each back... More

A small coffee and pastry shop. Get just a cup of brewed coffee or sit at a table, inside or out and enjoy a Latte and Treat :)

Their almond croissants are my favourite and the chocolate close behind. They are very different from the ones I love in Quebec City, much heavier and way bigger, but they are to die for!! I don't find the staff very friendly for the most part, though.

The best coffee in Halifax. I love the atmosphere and those chocolate croissants... maybe a little too much. The people who work here are really cool and friendly. I would come here every day if I could! But as it stands it's my once a week treat to myself and it's often the best part of my week.

My friend and I stopped in this establishment the other day ,looking forward to a hot drink after a lovely walk along Dartmouths' waterfront.. The filth we seen on walls and baseboards were just terrible and the photos they have on display were not of good taste and not very uplifting and cheerful..not to mention the dreary grey walls ....We...

Urban chic café with the best croissants, try the almond for a change they are excellent! or if you arrive early enough the chocolate. I do have some guilt however while enjoying a croissant and coffee at lunch time it faces the community soup kitchen for the less fortunate.
