This location is on the corner of an intersection not far from the water in downtown Halifax. The interior is beautifully decorated as if it’s someone’s comfy cabin, including fireplace, couches, old-style log wall, forest/lake picture wall, tables, free wifi… Coffee quality is good, staff...are friendly and atmosphere relaxed. Drop off books you’re done with or read another one you find on the shelf here. Prices are reasonable - just over $3 for a large mug of regular coffee.More

Great little spot to sit and enjoy a nice cup of coffee. I really liked the homey, casual atmosphere - very inviting. A nice mix of tables and comfy couches. Coffee was very good. My friend had a large chocolate chip cookie which looked very...good. The hard working staff were friendly and professional, busy tidying up and keeping the interior clean.More

I got a lavender haze latte (love you taylor) and a cinnamon bun. Both were absolutely divine! I would definitely this little place. Great food and adorable vibes!

This cafe was near our hotel! It was a nice stop to get snacks and hot chocolate for the day. You can also get salads and soups here.

Quaint restaurant and during our stay in Halifax visited this restaurant 5 times in 10 days. Enjoyed their service and quality of my Breakfast Coffee Muffin. (cooked egg on site), choice of ham or bacon and cheese on a muffin. Served while still hot and...was better than what is offered at Tim Hortons or McDonalds. Would go back again if I was ever in the areaMore

After receiving several recommendations to try the Cabin Coffee cinnamon rolls, we decided to stop by and give them a try. OMG! These are probably the best cinnamon rolls we have ever eaten! Highly recommended. Note: Parking in this area is challenging.

Great service!!!! We’ve been here a few times this week and the coffee is great, so are the pastries and the English muffin breakfast sandwich. The decor suits cold winters, as they have large comfy chairs and a huge fireplace. The best thing about this...stop is the warm and inviting smile you get from the entire staff. It’s SO refreshing to see that! Thank you!More

We stopped in for breakfast while en-route to the Halifax waterfront. Although it was busy, we managed to grab a table with comfy armchairs ... one of us joined the line to order. Coffee was good, with a big selection of home-baked goodies on offer...at very good prices. We loved the kitschy cabin vibe (totally cheesy but fun). Service was quick. Recommended.More

Best cinnamon rolls. Ever. Seriously. Try one! Muffins were still warm and so yummy! Fantastic breakfast deal: $5.87 for breakfast sandwich and coffee. (English muffin with egg, cheese, and ham or bacon) Excellent coffee. Lots of fresh and delicious options. Lovely staff!

Stopped in for ice coffee and a treat with my teenage daughter. Our treats, a cinnamon roll and a rice krispie square, were delicious. Our ice coffee was not that good. Atmosphere was good, quiet at the time of our visit. Have stopped in before...and left without eating/drinking due to lack of available seating.More

We were visiting Halifax for the day and touring the waterfront. My daughter wanted a specialty coffee shop so searched up Cabin Coffee and good reviews. Coffee was good and shop was as well, but the young employee that waited on us was ignorant from...the start for some reason. Seemed like we were bothering her by showing up an hour before closing time when she was clearly trying to put everything away for closing. Even my 12 year old son asked why she was mad at us. I’m hoping the rest of the staff are more professional.More

Staying for several nights at Four Points Hotel, a staff member recommended Cabin Coffee for breakfast. In my case having arrived at midnight, “breakfast” was at lunchtime. Still, I found that the rich coffee and 18% milk-fat cream perked [pun intended] up. I had a...breakfast bagel and later a warmed cinnamon roll. Yum! The term “cabin” is appropriate: a relaxed and rustic atmosphere, where there are leather chairs and coffee tables, instead of industrial plastic chairs and Formica tabletops. The staff members are super-courteous and friendly. I noticed many locals gathering throughout the day, a sure sign that quality draws in repeat diners.More
