It’s Sunday morning after a late night at the Seahorse, and there’s nothing more appealing than some fresh, greasy bacon brought to you after you wake up at 1pm. Luckily, Halifax has some of the best brunch joints around, and we’ve provided you with a list of the crème de la crème, so all you have to do is show up.
Below is a combination of delicious options perfect for students on a budget, and some more gourmet options for those special occasions with bae.
1. The Ardmore Tea Room // 6499 Quinpool Rd
Cheap, convenient and delicious; that's what you can expect every time you come to Ardmore. A Halifax favourite, people flock here on weekdays and weekends alike, and those milkshakes are to die for!
2. Coastal Café // 6499 Quinpool Rd
The menu may look small, but don't be fooled: the Coastal packs a big punch. The ingredients are fresh and distinct, the dishes are interesting and beautiful, and their coffee is some of the best in the city.
3. Mary’s Place // 5982 Spring Garden Rd
A Sunday morning staple! Their speciality being classic Canadian brunch and Middle Eastern delicacies (what??), Mary's offers up amazing food that caters to every dietary restriction, and the large portions and friendly service makes it a great experience every time.
4. Elle’s Bistro // 1678 Barrington St
This Barrington gem takes pride in bringing in ingredients from local farmers, so you know your brunch is fresh. Their unique creations will have you coming back for more to try all the unique variations.
5. EnVie // 5775 Charles St
Calling all vegans! This one's for you. If you're looking for something a little more gourmet with guaranteed healthier options than your usual brunch spot, you can't go wrong with EnVie.
6. Bistro le Coq // 1584 Argyle St
This quaint French bistro offers up quality brunch with a great atmosphere; their summer patio will make you feel like you're sitting in a café somewhere in Paris!
7. Durty Nelly’s Irish Pub // 1660 Argyle St
Durty Nelly's takes me back to Ireland every time. The people are great, the music is loud and beer flows freely. Their Sunday brunch portions leave nothing to be desired.
8. Edna // 2053 Gottingen Street
Another fancier option, Edna offers some of the most instagrammable food we've seen, with a taste to match. Located in one of Halifax's trendiest areas, it's the perfect place to come for some brunch before some a little thrift shopping.
9. Black Sheep //1569 Dresden Row
Great atmosphere and even better food is what most Haligonians would say about Black Sheep. Come here for brunch to impress a date and you'll be sure to have them in the bag.
