Awesome desserts

My husband and I had coffee/tea and desserts here one afternoon. The desserts were great and homemade! Yummy! It was a neat little place with a cool atmosphere for relaxing. We loved it!

Instead of mediocre hotel fare, we opted to walk a block to Cabin Coffee for breakfast. Good decision. The coffee was strong and would wake up a moose; it was served in a large ceramic mug rather than a small cup. The breakfast bun special with the coffee was enough to fill us up. All this for less than Cdn$10.... More

This restaurant is directly across from the Sheraton Four Points Hotel. What a great find for a quick and easy breakfast! A truly cute décor awaits inside too. Comfy couches to sit in and even a fireplace. Very rustic with great food. Good for a quick lunch too but I did not sample lunch.

The way I was treated at this place, they seems to care not about there customers. All I've asked is to replace my to-go espresso cup with for-here... As I've actually ordered. They refused to do so and wanted to charge me again for the cup saying that it is not their fault they've misheard. I'll never come back to... More

Cabin Coffee is the perfect spot to grab a coffee and a breakfast sandwich or baked good. Service was friendly and very quick. Even if it is lined up it does not take long to go through the line.

I found this cozy corner coffee house on Pinterest while researching Halifax. It offers the usual coffee drinks with the addition of a local speciality. A maple latte - can it be real? It was and it was spectacular. A subtle flavor of sweet maple - no need add sugar or sweetener. Along with a bagel BLT breakfast sandwich, it... More

This place looks suspiciously chainish but maybe I'm being to critical. Why does a clean well signed place have to be a chain ? Very pleasant young ladies behind the counter and the best cup of coffee I've had in Halifax. I left a purchase on the counter and they chased me down in the street to return it !... More

Very friendly service and good coffee, bakery goods and wide range of sandwiches soups and lunches in pleasant relaxed surroundings. We enjoyed our visit: located on the opposite corner to Sheraton Four Points hotel. Recommended.

Everytime I'm in Halifax I come here. It has great muffins that are super fresh and the lattes are better than Starbucks. The atmosphere is very comfy and a great place to people watch and hang out with an old friend.
