WELCOME TO THE CABIN

Cabin Coffee is one of the oldest family owned coffee shops in downtown Halifax.

For almost two decades Sarah Austin and her brother-in-law Ron Chisholm have been the face of Halifax’s favourite coffee shop.  In 2002 Sarah’s late sister Katie created a laid back and friendly café with comfortable oversized sofas and a big fireplace in the center. It has all the ambiance of their favourite place… their family’s rustic cabin.

Over the years, working at Cabin Coffee became a family tradition. Katie’s children each took a turn behind the counter as teens and their dad, Ron, has run the business end of things since the beginning. Sarah and Ron have seen family members, countless student part-timers and a handful of “lifers” making delicious lattes or baking fresh treats in the kitchen. Cabin Coffee’s menu includes a number of family recipes, like Sarah’s celebrated seedy breakfast bars and Halifamous cinnamon buns and her mom’s popular homemade soups.

Almost 20 years later, Ron and Sarah carry on Katie’s dream, making Cabin Coffee a popular spot for a tasty lunch or a coffee break with friends.

Great spot! I make a point to go here every time I’m in the city. Love the blueberry cranberry muffins, all fruit smoothies and coffee! Nice relaxing atmosphere.

Delicious and adorable Cabin Coffee has been on our list of places to try for awhile but have had free breakfast when staying in hotels...due to Covid no breakfast this trip so made the walk to Cabin Coffee this time! Everything was great- mocha latte and the cinnamon buns are a must try! We will definitely be back.

Fun local spot In the middle of the city is this cozy, comfy coffee shop. The coffee is great, there is also a good selection of baked goods and breakfast sandwiches. Service is quick however, grab a seat on one of the couches and spend some time people watching enjoying your drink.

Super! On ne devinerait pas de l'extérieur à trouver un pareil décor, excepté par le nom de l'établissement. En effet, Cabin Coffee propose un décor d'un chalet en rondin, au bord d'un lac... Des fauteuils confortables, des objets de décorations judicieusement choisis, sans compter un beau menu de café, thés ou soupes et sandwiches! Lq soupe au sweet potatoes était délicieuse (et super réconfortante en pleine tempête)

Loved it! A cozy little place with a rustic and homey feel. Quite simple bites and great coffee. A great start to what was sadly the last day of our Halifax business trip, but definitely coming back to this fun little place if I’m ever back in the area.

Unique I love this little coffee shop. They have a log cabin feel in the middle of the city. Big comfy leather couches and chairs. Wood and stone decor. Great coffee, smoothies, food choices etc. You can come here for any meal of the day and be satisfied although it is primarily a coffee shop. A great little break from your busy day.
