Been to both locations and would recommend both. Try the Peanut Butter Pie--it's made with a peanut butter custard-type filling. You won't be disappointed!

Have been eagerly awaiting the opening of The Middle Spoon in Sunnyside Mall, Bedford. Friendly and attentive staff, with atmospheric decor. The menu is appealing and includes snacks and light meals as well as the desserts and cocktails. Warm Sailor Cider was an excellent drinks choice on a cold day, and the Carrot Cake was delicious. My group also sampled... More

Have never visited the Halifax location but was intrigued and wanted to try this new place in Sunnyside Mall,when I saw the sign go up recently. As a long time Bedford resident, I am always pleased to see new dining or drinking establishments open their doors! My sister and I were coming from dinner one night and were in the... More

Apple pecan tart and an Aphrodite's Weakness for me and a chocolate lava cake with a Amaretto Beer Sour for my partner. He's still gushing about the Beer Sour, which we've sadly been told will be removed from the menu. This exceeded our expectations. It was decadent and the drinks matched the desserts perfectly. While expensive, it was a nice... More

The hotel I stayed at recommended this as THE place to go for dessert. After checking their website, I decided to skip dinner and just have dessert and I'm glad I did! I had the apple pecan tart, which was spectacular and meal-sized! I have to say it was extremely difficult to decide which dessert to have. It's a bit... More

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
