We came here on a Friday evening around 830pm. It was rather full but managed to find a table for 2. We ordered the taffy pudding with spiced hot chocolate and the pudding was to die for, warm and so fresh and so delicious. They pair drinks to the dessert and it makes it easier to try new drinks. Highly... More

I was at both the middle spoon and the secret bar. The desserts are fabulous. Over the last few months tried pretty much everything on the menu. Totally loved it! The staff was unconcerned about allergy requirements, which is a cause of concern.

We stopped in here after dinner on the harbour for dessert. We were not disappointed. There are some pretty creative cocktails but let me tell you...the desserts were fantastic! I had the peanut butter pie and it was as amazing as it sounds! It had a cozy atmosphere and the staff was good. I recommend stopping in if you are... More

While trying to kill sometime downtown Halifax, I stumbled across this little place. I had already eaten supper and thought this would be a good time killer to grab something sweet and be on my way. Little did I know how amazing it would be!! I am not a bit dessert or sweet eater and I basically inhaled the Twice... More

It took a while, nearly 15 minutes to get drinks ordered and then another 15 to get them. It also wasn't very busy. My lemon pavlova was very very good and therefore worth the wait

The Middle Spoon is a great place to visit for cocktails in the evening or for dessert after an event downtown. Great selection of desserts and beverages. They are open evenings from 4 p.m. and if visiting the downtown area this is an awesome place to top off the evening. They do offer light fare options (soup, salad, sandwiches) but... More

My friend and I stopped in here at the end of our restaurant hopping adventures. The place was pretty much deserted (lol) so we weren't sure if it was even open, but it was, and the server was super nice and sweet. Our desserts were good, but not over the moon good. The atmosphere was kind of a buzz kill... More

Two of us decided to cap our date night with dessert and coffee at the middle spoon on a Saturday night. (April 16th) It was my dates birthday and I can honestly say our experience here was extremely disappointing. Both of us come from a long history of the service industry both front and back of house. I am aware... More
