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

When we arrived 3ppl were seated first and waiting for two friends to arrive. We decided only to order drinks until the rest of our... More

The lady at the front desk at our hotel suggested this little spot for a great little place for dessert. I had the peanut butter pie which was huge! And probably the best I've ever eaten. I couldn't eat the entire portion, so took the remainder back to my room. I actually ate it for breakfast the next day!! A... More

We have eaten at Spoon a couple of times, and were let down both times. Food not great, desserts miserable. Once for a take away cheesecake: mediocre at best with dull cheese less flavour and some jammy toppings that were also lacking in flavour. We had preordered the cake and it was lost on first pick up so we had... More

It's been a while since I was there but... Great decor but the desserts taste like premade frozen food that you buy at a grocery store. Very disappointed. Honestly, I had the blondine and it tasted exactly like something I bought from the Superstore from the refrigerated section. Very expensive considering what you get. And the selection was extremely limited.... More

This place was recommended by someone we knew so thought we'd give it a try. Have to say that our expectations were high (from the recommendation) but happy to report that they were far exceeded as well! Service was great, the selection of desserts and their recommended pairings was vast and impressive, and the drink menu is absolutely an unmatched... More

We ordered carrot cake with raspberry sorbet, plus an extra scoop of sorbet. They charged us $10 for cake and sorbet and an extra $8 for 1 scoop of sorbet! We went to Amano tonight had a scoop of sorbet for only $3. We will never go back to Middle spoon for deserts again!
