WHO WE ARE We are a relaxed, easy going North End neighbourhood cafe/coffeeshop. We don't provide the ultimate dining experience, nor do we demonstrate pretentions over your latte. We are honest, and our simple mission is to provide the best food and coffee without any bullshit. We are a little rough around the edges, and learning as we go, but we are learning and with that comes better product and service.
HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO Often by the seat of our pants. Almost everything is prepped from scratch using personally selected ingredients and prepared in small batches. Nova Scotian products are used where the option is available as much as seasonally or economically possible. We operate on a first come, first serve basis, and don't take reservations. If the cafe isn't busy, claim your table before ordering. If you see we're full check with staff to see how a long a wait it will be. Often people come in, see we're full and leave, only to have a table open up within seconds. A little patience and you will be rewarded with a lovely plate of food more than worth waiting for.
WHAT WE DO We are a counter service fully licensed cafe redefining breakfast, offering high quality takes on classic lunch fare. We do take-out. Call ahead and we can have it ready for you.
WHEN WE DO WHAT WE DO The Coastal is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8-3 at the latest. Breakfast is served till closing time with the lunch menu beginning at 11. On Saturday we're open 8-3 at the latest, and Sunday and Holidays we sleep in a little, opening 10-2. Weekends and Holidays we offer the Breakfast menu only. We are closed on Wednesday.
WHERE WE DO IT 2731 Robie St., North End Halifax, between North and Almon Streets, next to the Bloomfield Centre.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO You can get a plate of eggs, bacon, hash, and toast everywhere. But where, my friends, can you get lamb meatballs on top of scrambled eggs with asiago and herbs? Our philosophy is that cheap is easy, value is a challenge. A lot of time and expense go into our dishes to ensure we are exceeding expectations. So while we may not be dirt cheap, we do provide extremely high quality cooking at very reasonable prices.
