My girlfriend and I were out exploring Halifax and happened to stumble across this place. They had a billboard by the street advertising a grand reopening with free beer and food and that caught my attention. It was a bit hard to find the place once we entered the building it is housed in. They have many Cuban themed dishes... More

After an uphill walk back from the harbor side area, we selected Tom's Little Havana Cafe for lunch. The place was mostly empty. It seemed somewhat dark with a bohemian mood. It reminded me of a college dive....probably really busy at night. It seemed out of place on the first floor of a high rise building. The waitress told us... More

Had Ton's signature brunch dish and a Caesar for $16. It's the new location and they have managed to bring all of the decor from the original spot to their new digs! It's not quite as dark and cozy but the food was generous and delicious!

Excellent Cuban cuisine. I chowed down on a chicken sesame salad, which delighted my tastebuds. A huge helping with a variety of veggies and grilled chicken, with of course sesame. My partner enjoyed the special "Pesto chicken" I believe that's what it was. It was quite delicious. Overall this was a great experience. Great waitress and quick service. Will return.

This cozy bar was the watering-hole for my group of friends and I while we studied in Halifax. It really can't be beat. The craft beer is 2nd-to-none (the IPA is my favourite).

Wednesdays are #wingsdays with Cajun and house wings cheap all day One of the best brunches in the city on Saturday and Sunday!
