Stopped in while waiting for show to begin... coffee I had was great, but star of the evening was the hot chocolate my wife had... with fresh whipped cream and salted caramel on top. Although we didn't order food... saw several sandwiches they'd made and...More

A friend who lives in Halifax recommended this bakery. We enjoyed the bread and the occasional sweet treat. Reasonable prices. Very helpful and try to accomodate individual needs without a fuss.

Great selection of baked goods, sandwiches and more. We enjoyed the sandwiches and donuts. Also a good selection of drinks and coffee. Not a lot of room to sit but great to grab food for a picnic.

I went in on a cold and windy morning to be welcomed as if I had been in 100 times. Such is the nature of East Coast hospitality. Thank you ladies for a wonderful cup of jo and a really good breakfast wrap.
