I was expecting Jane's 2.0, and was disappointed. First, it doesn't have the best hours. We hiked all the way there on a Saturday only to discover they aren't open for brunch on Saturday. Nor are they open for lunch through the week. Or on Mondays. And they don't take reservations. We eventually ended up going on a Tuesday night, and it was surprisingly busy but we did not have to wait too long for service or our food. The service was attentive and fast. I was happy to learn they serve Jane's iced tea, but the food itself was underwhelming. I started with the pork belly which was dry but had an interesting kale salad. The gnocci was slightly overcooked, and the first few bites were great. But as time went on the mustard flavour became overpowering and for a mushroom/tomato gnocci it had few of either. The portion sizes were generous. My friend had the fish which she said was cooked perfectly and with an interesting sauce. Not sure I would come again.

Had a great brunch with friends. The sucre was fabulous and so was the eggs Benedict with gravlax.
Get there early or be prepared to wait. If you do have to wait, they serve you coffee/tea while you're waiting.
We will definitely be back.

I've eaten at EDNA a number of times and enjoy their ambitious and constantly changing menu. The atmosphere is exciting and very friendly. The menu is fresh and creative and perfectly executed. Service is flawless but friendly. Shows pride of ownership and attention to detail. Glad you're in my neighbourhood!

Edna has brought a new surge of vibrancy to the up and coming area just north of downtown Halifax. The restaurant design is rather minimalist but bright and welcoming, and the bar is beautifully set up and functions very well as extra dining space. Busy all the time, the food is delicious , with a menu that changes regularly, there is always something new to please. One visit will have you planning your next trip to Edna for sure!

Edna is a great new spot in the up and coming neighborhood. Truly a great addition to the North end. Great food and service every time we go there.
