“Great coffee shop in the heart of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

This coffee house is a must on any coffee lovers list. First came here a few years back, when my mother suggested we get Iced Mochas (delicious! and refreshing on a hot summer day), and have been coming back ever since.
My husband and I enjoy coming here for breakfast anytime we're in Halifax (his favorite; the breakfast sandwich, mine; the yogurt with fruits, and the pineapple muffin, not much of a morning eater...). And if we're only in town for the day, we stop here for our "pre-departure" coffee. I've tried a lot of different coffee on their menu (regular, latte, mocha, iced...) and every single one was better than the last.
The atmosphere is very relaxing, with the beautiful lake mural in the back. You get that "cabin" feel in the city (love it!). The chairs and sofas are so comfortable that we never want to get up when it's time to leave (or when we have finished our coffees).
The staff has always been very friendly, and the service is great.

Great fresh food and relaxing atmosphere. I love the cranberry blueberry muffins. One of my favorite places to go after the farmers market.

“What a gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Just a short hop from our hotel and a perfect stop for a real breakfast not the mush churned out by the hotels.
Great coffee served with a smile too :)
