We just had a wonderful date night at The Middle Spoon. Staff were very friendly and the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend it. Can't wait to go back. We had the soup, sandwich and dessert combo and not one complaint. I can't say enough about his great it was tonight. A big thank you to the staff☺

I've been waiting for a long while to check this place out. But I'd show up when it hadn't opened yet or on a Sunday when it was closed or friends were not able to make it for a drop in. I took the walk up Saturday on my lunch break at work and ordered the chocolate lava cake. It... More

My husband and I wrapped up our dine around at the Middle Spoon this past Saturday night. We enjoyed two lovely desserts - the sticky toffee pudding and the chocolate lava cake. Instead of having the regular chocolate cake, we had it infused with peanut butter on recommendation from our server. Both desserts were fabulous and we rolled out of... More

We tried out the Bedford location on a Saturday evening and surprisingly the place was almost empty. Food was good, we tried several of their small plates and salads. The beer cocktails were also very good. Desserts were excellent and quite large. Overall, a nice place for drinks, dessert, or a light meal.

Maybe the cocktails are above average, I don't know. But the desserts were just average. For a place specializing in desserts, it is disappointing

we stopped in here after dinner and had the Sticky Toffee Pudding, and the Lemon Pavlova. They were both so good! Homemade, sweet and delicious. You can tell all the ingredients were fresh and made in house. The place also does a selection of signature cocktails. I tried one called Easter Rising. It was creamy and chocolatey. I can recommend... More

We made the mistake of going in hungry - looking for a light meal to be followed by dessert . Clearly they are not set up for anything but desserts and drinks - as their name suggests . The food we were served was mediocre at best . However , the desserts were excellent .

Called in to try the carrot cake for the birthday person in the group. We tried the cardamom carrot cake, sticky toffee pudding and the lemon pavlova, all split 3 ways. I have to say they were all 10/10 especially the carrot cake. Coffee brewed fresh and more than adequate. Evan served us and was professional, friendly and efficient.

Popped into The Middle Spoon while waiting for a dinner reservation up the street, downtown Halifax. Planning on having the habitual G+T, but since they don't have traditional tonic, we opted for a Hendricks Martini, straight up, with olive. We weren't expecting much, despite the female bartender's ease of manner, welcoming tone, and attractive personality. Well, she served up one... More
