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

The coffee was good and there were a large variety of muffins and scones, which were all very delicious.

We drove up from Chester to do some shopping, and to find a nice place for breakfast. The Cabin Coffee was listed as a good place for breakfast. Unfortunately, there was no breakfast. The closest they had was a breakfast sandwich, and it was avarage...at best. There were a number of delicious looking pastries but - we wanted breakfast! - you know, bacon and eggs, maybe a few home fries, nope, none of that to be had. Just a suggestion as well - since you're wearing a mask, you really need to speak up, especially to us with senior ears. Neither my wife nor myself could hardly understand a word that person was speaking!More

My husband and I stayed at The Four Points by Sheraton last night and were provided with vouchers for coffee and "breakfast" for the morning since Cabin Coffee is right beside the hotel. It was very convenient and we love supporting local restaurants and establishments...when we can, so we were very happy with out morning brew! I got a Cappuccino and my Husband got an equivalent to a Triple Shot in the Dark. He said it was very good and strong! We got some Cinnamon Buns and Blueberry Cranberry Scones too. They were absolutely amazing! We would recommend this coffee shop to anyone in the downtown Halifax area. Reasonably priced and cute place too.More

The bagels and cinnamon bun were excellent and my wife said her coffee was as well. The service was very good too.

Adorable, cozy little breakfast/ coffee and snack spot just up from the Harbourfront. Delicious breakfast sandwiches! Fresh bagels and the apple cinnamon roll and macaroons sealed the deal! Absolutely lovely way to start our trip in Halifax!
