I'll say it again...best cappuccino in HRM. I can't comment on the food as I have only picked up a coffee, cappuccino or espresso which has always been fabulous and consistent. Friendly staff at both locations and very clean. Keep up the great work!!

I have been a fan of Two If By Sea (TIBS) for many years. Their cookies are delicious and the size of you head (practically no joke, three people can eat one). Love their brewed coffee, tea, lattes and cappoccinos too but was less impressed with their americano the time I had it. Its really nice here in the summer... More

We came across this as we were visiting the Quaker House opposite. It seemed to be somewhere were people came with young children or met to work. The service was friendly and helpful and the tea was lovely. It reminded us of similar places in North London UK.

I've been hearing people rave about Two if By Sea for sometime now and finally managed to get there. Pretty decent coffee. Pretty ordinary venue. Pretty terrible service. Only a block up the hill from the ferry terminal it is easy to get to if you are wandering about for the day. I was surprised at how few pastries and... More

I had high expectations for this busy cafe. The almond croissant my wife had was very good and freshly made however disappointment came in my bagel order. It took 10 min to wait for a toasted bagel with cream cheese... the bagel while better than a store bought one was over toasted to the crispy stage in a cheap house... More

Great cafe! Such a good atmosphere and place to chill after a long day walking around. I don't know why it's rated as expensive $$$$ as it's 4 $ on trip advisor but it really wasn't that much money. Yes more than a Tim's coffee but it was cheaper and way better than Starbucks! Loved it!

All I can say is love love love love. Best croissants.....1 is enough to split with two people (unless you're really hungry). ;-)

Very busy, high traffic bakery. They serve typical coffees and bakery items but their main attraction is enormous, different versions of croissants. I had their plain butter and my fiancé had their weekly special croissant called "the Zylvie". My fiancé fully enjoyed and indulged in his croissant but I could not finish my croissant and had to doggy bag the... More

Ordinary baked items only, nothing so great about the store. A bit hyped on the social network. Friendly staff and good spread to cater to your sweet tooth. Kinda too sweet though, might kick up your diabetics a bit. The croissants are really good and large enough for two people.
