Tom's is a basic, not frills local kinda place. The food is great and there's a decent selection of local beer. Enjoyed the fish burger and drink. There are a few game boards kicking around if interested. Relaxed and low-key.

This place has good food, and an amazing selection of local beer on tap. It's small, but the atmosphere is a nice one. Good for business travellers, or just hanging out with some friends.

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!

We were the only cigar bar in Atlantic Canada from 1997 to 2006... then the world went non-smoking! We have continued on as a favorite in the city as a neighborhood style bar specializing in Craft Beers from Nova Scotia. Some of the best service in the city and a perennial winner of 'Best Place for a first Date in Halifax'!! Sunday nights are Trivia nights from 7:30 - 9:30. Also try 4 x 5oz craft beer flights for $7! Wednesdays are #wingsdays with Cajun and house wings cheap all day One of the best brunches in the city on Saturday and Sunday!
