With a few locations and catering, this is a great spot for soups, pastries and coffee drinks. The library location is quiet and relaxing. Delicious, full flavoured coffee

Quality is fading. Coffie was luke warm...cookies were not as fresh as (granola) what they used to be.

The Pavia Gallery is a wonderful addition to the New Library on Spring Garden and had delicious choices of specialty coffees and baked goods. The chocolates are especially delicious and are highly recommended.

Nice place to stop and have a ginger cookie or fancy cupcake. The décor is white and minimalist. I really liked it. The staff are pleasant and it's a peaceful place for a snack and to rest your legs after looking at lots of art.

We were quite surprised to find this wonderful oasis on the outskirts of the city. Fantastic quaility coffee, the macchiato was outstanding as was the granola cookie. We returned a second time for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the sandwiches. It certainly has my endorsement.

The Central Halifax Library has two locations of the Pavia Cafe. One is just inside the main door on the street level, and one on the fifth floor. I naturally gravitate to the one on the 5th....less traffic and a wonderful view. "Sandwiches" are prepared...More

This is a great place to stop for coffee or tea, and is convenient to the ice cream stand it sits behind.
