Coffee & Treats in Halifax


Select Local Merchants

  • Ciboulette
    Ciboulette's menu changes daily, and informs expectant diners of the palate-punching possibilities inherent in a variety of breakfast and lunch dishes, which are derived from local ingredients and constructed in-house. Morning meal-goers can mull over a cup of red rose tea ($1.25) before introducing incisors to a hearty vegetarian breakfast wrap—a tortilla-contained soirée of scrambled egg swirling amid melted cheddar and spiced potatoes, supplemented by a side of salsa and guacamole ($4). Paninis approach eaters in shades of ham, brie, and spinach on apricot-hazelnut bread or featuring chili-braised pulled pork with chipotle mayo, tomato, and cheddar ($6.95). Those averse to ambient heat can coddle a cold sandwich such as the traditional egg salad, classic chicken salad, or the established and rather haughty Earl ($5.50).

  • Java Blend Coffee Ltd
    Established in 1938, Java Blend is a small-batch family-owned roastery and café located in the heart of Halifax. Like a reclusive film director, Java Blend has accumulated decades of experience resulting in an avalanche of accolades, including the Krups Kup of Excellence award for best espresso in Halifax. Java Blend sources fair trade and sustainable beans for its eclectic collection of coffees, including six original blends, which, like an insult comic stuck in an infinite loop, are roasted fresh each day. Snag a bag of fair-trade-certified Organic Mexican Nubes de Oro ($11/lb.) for a medium-bodied morning brew with vanilla and caramel notes, or explore new terrain with a batch of earthy Organic Northender Blend ($12/lb.).

  • Coburg Coffee House
    Independently owned Coburg Coffee House is a Dalhousie staple, offering locally sourced, home-cooked café cuisine and a slew of 100% Arabica bean brews from around the globe. Local art adorns the walls of Coburg, where Tuesday-night open mics, cozy couches, free WiFi, and a history of heated four-day Yahtzee tournaments have established its reputation as the neighbourhood's living room. Sip a mug of mocha from Colombia, jam on a jolt of Kenyan java, or express yourself with an Ethiopian espresso. Wake up to Coburg's wide selection of savoury breakfast foods, served till 11 a.m. daily, or take a bite out of hunger pangs with a signature sandwich, so plenteous with palate-pleasing piquancy that, as with a crumbling drawbridge, toothpicks have to be surgically inserted to keep things from totally falling apart.

  • Sawadee Tea House
    According to her recent profile in East Coast Living, Sawadee Tea House owner Mie Mie Sein travels to her native Thailand every year to tour plantations and explore new blends of tea. The fruits of these annual trips are on display at her two-level shop along the Granville Mall, where she constantly replenishes labelled jars with more than 250 loose-leaf varieties from regions as far-flung as Thailand, Kenya, and China. The aromas of black, green, herbal, floral, and specialty teas pervade the shop as they steep, luring passersby in for a calming mug or a rejuvenating splash in the face. Sawadee Tea House also serves as a boutique; beside the neatly stacked rows of jars sit accessories such as stainless-steel infusers and glass vessels for storing tea leaves.:m]]
