Solid brunch spot. The food is always consistent. You order and pay at the counter and then it's brought to you once ready. I've tried a few things on their menu and I don't think you can go wrong with any of them. It's always super busy no matter what time or day of the week. It's a small spot,... More

This busy popular cafe is good if you're hungry or prepared to share. We shared the New England. Butternut and pear sauce truly delicious. Is a buzzy place with fun flavours on the menu.

This is one of my favourite breakfast cafes in Halifax. Breakfast elevated with great flavours and fresh ingredients! Colour on a plate. The coffee is great too. It is a small restaurant that is very popular and can fill up quickly, indicators of the quality of the food. Try the huevos rancheros for a colourful breakfast delight or the spicy... More

Not sure I would describe this as the best or most amazing brunch in Halifax. Went on a Sunday and just beat the huge line up by 5 minutes. This place only seats about 16 people so be prepared to stand around being jostled by the waitresses. Got a delicious big cup of coffee while waiting so that helped. We... More

Most breakfast restaurants provide the same popular menu items. Eggs bacon toast etc. Well, don't go to this place if you expect anything close to the normal menu. This little place has to be the most delightful experience for breakfast we have had in a long time. The food menu selection is different, the food is absolutely delicious. The service... More

I can't get enough of the Durty Bird (yikes - that sounded a bit raunchy!). The week leading up to my whirlwind work trip to Halifax, all I could think of was this delicious creation; it is the messiest, tastiest, and most satisfying breakfast sandwich I have ever had. I had less than 24 hours in Halifax and was able... More

While the line-ups are long on weekends, it is worth the wait! The coffee is great and the food is delicious. Order at the counter and find a spot to sit while you sip your coffee. Definitely casual dining!

The Coastal Cafe has the best brunch in Halifax, hands down. They have a wide variety of innovative and delicious breakfast options, ranging from sweet and savory classics to unique twists on traditional breakfast like the Thanks Given'r; a turkey and stuffing scramble with brussel sprouts, sage and rosemary stuffing hash, gravy, and fried eggs on top. There's something for... More

This used to be a great place for breakfast. Not any more. Soft scrambled eggs were overdone and dry,so was the accompanying smoked trout. French Toast made with carrot bread was too sweet and left a bad taste in my mouth. Coffee wasn't that great. Expensive breakfast should be a lot better than this.
