Fresh Roasted Coffee, Fresh Baked Treats


Cabin Coffee is a family owned coffee shop in the heart of 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.
