A great selection of shops, and restaurants and hotels . Also, the movie theatre! Close to the outdoor sport field and the soon to be home of new ice rink complex. You don't need to travel far for anything. IKEA and Cabela's coming soon

Ice coffee was on order and the Tim Hortons at the ferry terminal was not going to work for me. A short walk and bliss. A delicious iced coffee. Worth the walk and if you want; you can catch the food truck that is on King St. between Portland and Queen Street.

Been here a few times and always hoped it would get better but it still is very over priced and service not great food is so so. One problem is you have to pay for parking and it is tight quarters stepping out to cross the road.

The croissants are huge. I paid $4.30 for a chocolate croissant. They were sold out on the croissant of the day for $5.00 at 10:00 AM which was the lemon curd croissant so I wasn't able to try it but it must have been good if it sold out at 10:00 AM.

I go to Two If By Sea when I want a really good muffin. I can't say anything about the coffee, tea, or other things but if you want a large and scrumpious treat, this is the place to go. The food is in a large size portion and I have not been disappointed ever! Since I will be in... More

This is a lovely (if noisy) place to hang out and have a treat. The croissants are great and enough for two to share. I myself am not a fan of their coffee. I find it too bitter since they started roasting their own. Great spot though and friendly people.

You've never had a croissant until you've been here!!!! You actually have to hold it with two hands...like a burger. I've had both the almond and the chocolate ones. Both to die for. And they make an amazing cup of coffee too!!!

Small but very busy modern Melbourne type cafe in sleepy downtown Dartmouth. Good brewed coffee with a choice of three beans and the usual mix of espresso type coffees. Great baked goods including croissants

Thank Dan C
