Found it by accident, across the road from our Hotel, liked it so much we visited three times, sat and enjoyed the atmosphere and simple comforts... would go regularly if we didn't live so far away

Coffee was surprisingly weak but their breakfast english muffin with bacon and egg was delish. Cute decor makes you feel at home.

We recently stayed for a few days in Halifax. Wanted a spot to get a tea. This was the choice. Had evening tea and breakfast one morning. The toasted bagel was awesome. Great texture and crunch. Service was quick and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Just discovered this great little coffee shop across from our hotel. Delicious breakfast special: egg/ham(or bacon)/English muffin with coffee for $5! They also have oatmeal, yoghurt, smoothies, muffins, etc. Nice, comfy seating area. Sorry we didn't find it sooner!

A rustic atmosphere with excellent coffee near the Halifax waterfront. Great for traveller staying at the 4points by Sheraton.

Came here one time in the morning and really enjoyed it. They have e.g. a breakfast special which is a breakfast bagel or bun with coffee. Very tasty and we only paid $12 for breakfast for two, really good deal. Very cozy decor, nice staff, but can be quite crowded.

During my stay in Halifax, Cabin Coffee was conveniently located across the street from my hotel. Each day I enjoyed the peaceful and quant atmosphere. There is a wide variety of food choices, all excellent. As an "amateur coffee snob" I like to pretend I know a thing or two about coffee... was not disappointed. Different choices of roasts daily....

Truly enjoyed the ambiance and exceptional coffee. A choice of fresh baked goods made selecting just one very difficult. I did try though. lol

We enjoyed a great breakfast here. English muffin and bagel filled with your traditional breakfast stuffing and the coffee was great. We also had banana loaf and cinnamon bun and the cinnamon bun was one of the best I have ever tasted! The setting is a cabin like, very eclectic and cozy

Very good located close to the waterfront area in Halifax, Cabin Coffee offers nice options for breakfast and lunch. Very affordable, very friendly service and incredibly nice decorations. I love the ambiance they managed to create. You can enjoy coffee with a group of friends and discuss life or you can enjoy it by yourself while reading a book in... More
