Cozy escape

Great coffee, fairly good cinnamon bun (especially when dipped in coffee). Fun, campy atmosphere and many deep cozy leather chairs. My second visit in two trips and I Would go back again.

We went there because it was on the way from Citadel Hill to the Waterfront and we are sure glad we stopped in. I wanted a coffee and a rest but felt a little hungry so we grabbed a sandwich and soup to split. When I took my first sip of coffee I knew I was in love lol it... More

Located next to the Sheraton Hotel, it is a great start to your day with fresh baked goods, breakfast sandwiches and other amazing selections. I started each day here and it was a nice relief from Starbucks or other chains that serve packaged foods. Great atmosphere inside where you feel very Canadian when you sit in the leather chairs and... More

A great place to eat in the heart of Halifax. Central to everything and with a friendly homey atmosphere. Although it is billed as a "Coffee Shop", their home-made sandwiches and soup are among the best in the city. This is not "Tims", this is an independent shop where everything is made fresh and on-site. Comfortable tables and chairs make... More

I visit Cabin Coffee with some degree of regularity and really like the ambiance ... it is very casual and the owners and staff always friendly and smiling. The fresh baked goods are delicious and coffees made to order. Their breakfast sandwiches and lunches are very good to. Free Wifi as well and never made to feel like they want... More

I was very disappointed by the tea selection. I would expect a coffee shop to serve a higher quality tea than presidents choice brand purchased from the grocery store. The baked good were decent.

The owner has done a wonderful job at making this place part of the locals daily stops. From the canoe on the wall to the homemade tastiness you have to try it. Its simply a coffee shop that offers friendly staff members and from scratch foos. Try a hummus sandwich or a cinnamon roll. I enjoy their coffee and always... More
