The Rolling Stones ate here when they played in Halifax! It's pretty expensive, but a beautiful view of the harbour and all ingredients are sourced locally and organic where possible.

Gluten-free fish and chips!! The girls that own this place serve fish caught by their father on the South Shore. Can also get fish to-go, to cook later. And they sell Sweet Williams Sausage, which are the best our city has to offer!

By far THE best place to get brunch in Halifax. It is SUPER tiny, though. So go a few mins before it opens to be sure to get a seat. It's worth the wait, though! Huevos rancheros are a fave.

About an hour drive from our house. This is where the apples and vineyards are located (and many other farms). Go on a winery tour, check out Cape Blomidon, stroll Main Street, visit the quaint neighbouring towns. We can give you lots of other recommendations. Also - an awesome "eagle watch" in the winter time. And, you can even go mud sliding on the dykes!
