Great eats and comfy little spot.

I frequent this spot often as I work nearby. Soup is always good (as are the treats) and they have an excellent dark roast coffee.

Good coffee, nice muffins and things. Really bad espresso, please adjust your machine and get some crema on your espresso. Serve it in ceramic to those that are drinking it there, not paper cups

Just in the centre, cute place with plenty of sofas and little bit weird decoration. Tasty sweet bakeries and coffee. Also soups and sandwiches look pretty nice. Good price.

We stayed at the nearby Courtyard and walked up the street one morning for breakfast here. It's a cozy coffee shop with good, reasonably priced home-made food in a convenient location. We had the breakfast sandwiches and coffee special. It was hot, hearty, and a good value. We would visit all the time if we lived there!

Cabin Coffee is located conveniently in downtown Halifax near the waterfront. It has a very good selection of coffees - with a specialty in muffins and scones. But it also has breakfast sandwiches and oatmeal/porridge. It is very comfortable - with sofas and free wifi.

The atmosphere is "log cabin in woods" - in downtown Halifax 1 block up from waterfront. Great coffee served in huge mugs that kept the coffee warm - and had sturdy handles for the guys. Comfortable down armchairs for seating - mostly the locals just ran in, quickly were served and dashed out again. Great efficient service, but friendly to... More

Arrived in town and wandered into Cabin Coffee on our first day, what luck! Enjoyed the lattes and great homemade cinnamon buns that were so addictive. Homemade soups delicious. Great location near the water. Funky decor. Love specialty espresso cafes like this and we kept going back every day we were there.

What a great little spot!! Right across the street from our hotel and super cozy. Great for a quick breakfast on the go or a relaxing coffee and a fun little atmosphere. We will absolutely return on our next trip to Halifax!!

Friendly staff, excellent value tea and coffee and comfy seats. Not very far from waterfront. The muffins and other baked goods looked delicious but we didn't indulge as we had already got supplies in our rucsac!
