More Halifax

Cousin’s Diner. Great food, nice owners, fast service, and a great looking place to boot. Certainly worth a stop if you’re ever in the area.

Olympic Confectionary – Halifax, Nova Scotia

My first lunch counter experience from my new home, and a great one at that. It’s located on Barrington St. , across the street from the train station. The two gentlemen in before us had been going to the Olympic every day for fifty years. It has been in the same family since the 1970s.

The breakfast was excellent, cooked on the small grill behind the counter, and was extremely inexpensive. The coffee was great, and was served in classic green and white diner mugs.
