“Best Latte”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Great little gem of a cafe in Elmsdale. I love to come here with a book or newspaper and sit by the window to read. Their breakfast sandwich is made with real ham, and a big hit even with the kids. Best of all is their lattes, I ordered a large vanilla thinking I will never finish it, but holy crap it was so good I was tempted to get another to go! I guess after drinking them at McDonald's I forgot what they should have tasted like. Even after moving to a new location this cafe is still too small, and not really adequately ventilated when the breakfast rush is on. I've left a few times smelling of fried food or smoky toast! Hope they stick around for a long time, East Hants needed a place like this.

“Coffe is to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I had lunch here with a couple of friends. We all had sandwiches and soup/salad. I personally had the half donair Panini with spinach and cranberry salad. It was very good, but the bigger story here is the coffee! I love good coffee and their coffee is GREAT. Since I was treated to lunch, I have no idea how much it cost, but it was yummy. We sat outside on the patio, it was a bit noisy but still very nice.

“Healthy lunch break just off the highway.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The Cup of Soul Cafe is located in Elmsdale, Nova Scotia, just off Highway 102 on exit 8. Rather than stopping at the fast food joints near the highway, just go a few hundred meters farther toward Elmsdale, where the Cup of Soul has a brand new and modern location. This restaurant, open for breakfast and lunch, features soups, sandwiches and light meals. There is always a selection of three or four excellent soups, as well as coffee, muffins and paninis and salads. A full range of breakfast items is available, along with pastries and deserts. Gluten free dishes are an option. Great casual and tasty dining at a moderate price.
