In case you follow my recommendation to walk from the city center to Point Pleasant Park down South Park Street and Young Avenue, this is the place to pause for a last coffee and bathroom stop. Coffee is decent, but service is not overwhelmingly speedy.

The space itself is nice, but the girls working when I visited were not friendly and quite unprofessional. My coffee order was made wrong because they could be bothered to talk to each other, and when she fixed it, she plopped it on the coffee grinder (they don't even have a proper counter) without telling me, and someone else took...

this coffee shop bakes their pastries, cookies and muffins on site using natural ingredients ( read REAL butter). They are a big proponent of the buy local theme in Halifax. They also have great coffees, soups and wraps. Best date squares in Halifax. They also carry a selection of their Sugah! chocolate bars and italian sodas
