Good food. I like a lot. I didn't get sick or anything. Close to halifax because it's in halifax so it's pretty close to the city. Can't get much closer than that.

This cute little place has decent croissants and pastries. But I got a not-so-pleasant surprise when I ordered a chai tea latte. My tea tasted like coffee. When I asked the lady what exactly went into my drink, she politely said that the drink was...More

We stopped here to get some baked goods to take with us on our way out of town. We picked up several small pastries and cookies and they were all excellent. It was a nice treat.
