We came here on our anniversary after going for dinner elsewhere. The atmosphere was good, as was the decor. Our server wasn't friendly, and nothing arrived at our table very quickly. We ordered drinks, and my husbands came in a martini glass and was nicely garnished, very pretty! Mine however, came in a wine glass (I ordered a cocktail) that... More

Stopped in here on a whim while in the city for a conference. I was heading towards the Jazz Festival, which thankfully happened to be going on the same week, and thought I'd try a dessert. I had the peanut butter pie which was absolutely fantastic! I saved a picture of it on my cell phone that I still have... More

Fresh, homemade and delicious! We were looking for a special dessert and the Middle Spoon was recommended. We were not disappointed. I loved the Pumpkin Spice Mocha Cake - a lovely cake base covered with mocha and topped with whip cream and a chocolate piece that spelled 'spoon'. On the side were two melt in your mouth ginger cookies and... More

Nice light desserts in the perfect size. Elegantly displayed and made in house. A nice way to finish out an evening with your choice of libation: coffee, tea or cocktails. If you can't decide what to drink you will find a helpful suggestion below each dessert treat. Server was knowledgeable and helpful.

My friends & I decided to head to The Middle Spoon as part of our cousin's bachelorette party & it did not disappoint! The desserts were all delicious & tasted fresh & homemade. I highly recommend the 'Aphrodite's Weakness' cocktail, I can honestly say it was one of the best cocktails I ever had! The decor is lovely & cozy... More

I love the concept of a dessert place where you can go to relax in the evening. The desserts were good and the cocktails really delicious. This is a must-go in Halifax. We even got a taste of the secret when we went back the following day and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely go back if I go... More

Last year, I went to the Middle Spoon with my mother and sister and it left such a great impression on us that I wanted to give the same experience to my boyfriend during his first time in Halifax. We went there after dinner in a nearby restaurant, and ended up being the only ones there for a while. We... More

I loved the decor and the atmosphere. I read some reviews regarding poor service but I found the servers to be quite nice. They even offered to mix some sweeter ingredients into my drink when they noticed I was not enjoying it. Everything is pricey, which is unfortunate because if the prices were more reasonable I would definitely consider going... More

Holy WOW! The dessert was amazing! The atmosphere was perfect. I wanted to stay and gain 20lbs right then and there. To top it all off were the cocktails. If you can find the pass word, there is even a speak easy in the basement of this place. The drinks were potent and delicious and the bar tenders are masters... More
