What more can I say? Great coffee and treats for the whole family. I purchase their coffee as gifts and it's always appreciated. Go see for yourself.

One word: Croissant. This place makes the croissants to end all other croissants. I love their iced-chai lattes too. Dangerously delicious.

The almond croissants are so good but two could share as they are huge as is everything in the baked goods section. I found the coffee strong. I haven't tried the upstairs fare yet but rumor has it, you will be pleased.

We have visited this last year for a great number of times and it just feels like home. Some of the best bakers in Canada very friendly and hard workers.i do not mind paying a little more for the great baked goods and wonderful people who serve the public. We have passed on the great treasure we have found here... More

Two If By Sea have incredible croissants, probably everything else too, but these are out of this world. I love their weekly specials for lunch too. Wouldn't want to have them all the time, but for special occasions ... everyone knows what to get me at work! Their coffee is good too.

The coffee here is just what you expect in really good cafe. The pastries are excellent, and I would recommend the pain de chocolat (chocolate filled croissant. The cookies are family sized, and everything seems to sell out by as the day wears on, making the whole pastry collection fresh daily. The seating is fine, but it is very popular... More

I don't think I will ever come across a croissant as good as the ones made by two if by the sea. When people come to visit me or when I greet guests at my place of work getting a croissant and a coffee from there is the first thing I recommend. Worth every penny.

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
