“Yummy drinks and handmade chocs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

Friends agreed best Chai latte and Latte we had whilst in Halifax. Accompanied by a "TASTER" bag of handmade chocs. Delicious. Close to brewery tour and a perfect place to relax and wait for the tour to start.

This place not just offers an excellent coffee but also offer a very nice tea selection. Quiet place with a simple but interesting interior and good service.

“Try the Samosas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

The chocolate drinks , pastries and goodies are ALL superb, The service is excellent and the place divine.

If you are not a chocolate fan or want a change the the Samosas are GORGEOUS served with Sweet Chutney [ if you want and we always do ] they are fresh aromatic , spicy and always served with a smile.

In fact all the food served is delicious and light fragrant, aromatic / spicy or sweet - whatever you want .

Well worth a visit - we go every time :-)

“A Chocolate HEAVEN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

Where do we start ? Beautiful chocolates and chocolate gifts, interesting gifts, great staff, delicious wraps and Samosas, great environment with comfy couches and seats,

Wi Fi if you need somewhere to hunker down whilst getting cozy with THE MOST AMAZING< THE BESTEST TRULY LIP LICKING WOW WOW WOW HOT CHOCOLATE EVER. No powders here - just melted Belgian chocolate buttons and hot milk - Seriously FABULOUS - I am told that the Tea and Coffee and juices are great too - but I can not have anything other than that amazing hot chocolate. Usually with a hot Pain Au Chocolate or Pastry with Raspberries and dark chocolate in , OH OH OH it is truly a chocolate lovers paradise.

The cakes and desserts are great in fact IT'S ALL AWESOME go go go and GO AGAIN . Every time we're in Halifax we're there Open early til later - after the Nocturne event we sat with the fabulous hot chocolate some great food and watched the lights on the harbor - still at midnight we were greeted with a warm welcome and the BEST HOT CHOCOLATE and GOODIES EVER [ you can tell we're fans :-) ]

“Friendly but pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012 via mobile

The barrista here was very friendly, and the goodies looked great. There was a larger variety of snacks than I expected, some sweet treats, pastries, cookies, amd then samosas! Veg offerings clearly marked. The drinks were fine, but unremarkable for the high price. Good note, they had student discount of 15%. very nice quiet surroundings, bar seats, tables, sofas. But the price means it's not worth returning to.

Dear Siulaia: thank you for your visit and for your review. We are somehow astonished to read that we have a pricey menu. In fact, most people find our menu to be very well priced and much better than other surrounding coffee shops.
It is sad to read that you find it not worth returning. We hope we can change your mind :O)
Best Regards,
Omar (Co-Owner)
