I spent only a few days in Halifax and visiting the surrounding area. I really loved it and I especially loved eating lots of lobsters! I ate it for breakfast with eggs Benedict, as a snack in a dip, for lunch in a lobster roll and for dinner in a lobster mac’n’cheese! Here are my good addresses in Halifax and around!

I end my first day in Halifax at the no less famous Economy Shoe Shop . This eclectic restaurant has been one of Halifax’s trendiest restaurants for over 10 years. The restaurant’s retro sign, after which the Economy Shoe Shop is named , once belonged to a Barrington Street shoe store in the 1950s. Dishes range from Thai red curry to Maritime seafood chowder . The restaurant also offers live music, public readings, and a rotating display of local artwork hanging on the walls. I really loved the lobster mac’n’cheese, delicious!

The Brooklyn Warehouse

Sometimes people ask me how I manage to find good restaurants, activities or slightly more unusual visits. I have to admit that I use Pinterest , Instagram and Culture Trip a lot . I don’t know how I heard about this restaurant in Halifax’s North End, but it was pinned in my favorites on my Google Map, which I fill in religiously before each departure. That’s how I found The Brooklyn Warehouse located in the North End of the city of Halifax. It is ranked in the top 10 of the best restaurants in the area. I absolutely loved my glasses of wine and my Cobb salad from the market. I highly recommend it to you! Satisfied foodie!

When I heard there was a wine bar in Halifax I put it on my foodie wishlist, you absolutely have to go to Obladee . Their extensive wine list and knowledgeable staff make it a fantastic venue for first-timers and even connoisseurs. In addition, they serve delicious tapas. I must admit that the wino-foodie is more than satisfied for my last evening in Halifax.

The Henri House

The Henri House  is a resto-pub located in the former home of Canadian politician William Alexander Henry. The stone building dates from the 18th century will inspire the restaurant’s menu featuring British pub-style fare, maritime cuisine and with a large selection of local ales and microbrews. The Henry House is rated one of the best restaurants in Halifax. I must admit that their lobster dip is really excellent, to be devoured on the terrace with a good glass of Chardonnay.

Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery

The most famous brewmaster Alexander Keith was also the mayor of Halifax. Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery  still welcomes visitors with costumed entertainers, stories and most importantly a good beer. I didn’t do the guided tour but it’s possible for only $26. The place is really beautiful and the employees very friendly. I promise myself to have more time next time to visit. Cheers!

Garrison Brewings & co

Going to drink good local beers at Garrison Brewings & co near the Halifax boardwalk is a must. There is a nice large terrace to accommodate a lot of people. In May 2006, nearly a decade after producing the first cuvée of Irish Red Ale, the Garrison Microbrewery established permanent residence in Halifax’s harbor district, an arts, culture and tourist destination. You will love your time there, a must see for beer lovers!

nomy, it will never be awarded Michelin. But it’s the perfect place to eat with the family, on the terrace and at a relatively reasonable price. Established since 1998, Your Father’s Mustache is the place to eat in downtown Halifax. The menu includes fish & chips, lobster, pasta, steaks, seafood and weekend brunch. Since opening their rooftop terrace, the restaurant has become iconic for its atmosphere and sunny summer days.
