The best breakfast in Halifax! Family run business makes you feel like at home. Even just toast with peanut butter... taste better than other place! Trust me, I have already spent a lot of time finding a good place to enjoy my breakfast after sending my son to the daycare. And this is my final choice of breakfast. I seldom leave any comments in google maps. It definitely worth to try!read more

Best kept little secret in Halifax! You want some really good food but doesn't want to pay a hefty price because it's... in somewhere posh? Located in the quiet Bayer's Lake business district along Hobson's Lake Drive inside the Canada Revenue building. There's nothing fancy in this "building cafeteria". Just really, really good food and great owners!read more

This little cafe has some tasty fresh food under glass, including yummy salads (I like the tabouli salad). You can... order a wrap stuffed full of healthy fresh veggies and grilled meat, or have a daily special like pan fried haddock. Way better than the local fast food joints! It has a good amount of seating if you want to eat in, or they are happy to prepare a takeout dish for you. Friendly staff, good food, fast service. Go there!read more
