We visit Halifax every year and make sure to stop in here. The food is great, the coffee is delicious and the people are friendly. They sell their coffee beans which are worth the purchase.

This is a nice coffee shop with one proviso. The staff are a sullen lot. The fellow who served me had obviously never smiled in his life or he just hated me. Nevertheless they offer free Wifi and they sell very cute tea mugs with lids which I bought. However guys - do try to smile wherever possible as it... More

Coffee is the best in Halifax. Assorted goodies are always fresh and tasty. Lunches are excellent and prices are good value for the money. A bit out of the way but worth the short bit of travel for the ambience and the cuisine and of course, the coffee.

I stopped in for a coffee and a muffin. I passed on the muffin because of the hornets perched on them. When I mentioned it to counter staff he replied "they are everywhere". There are lots of other good coffee places nearby.

I always like to seek out good breakfast places away from the chains and hotel restaurants. Wired Monk fit that quest perfectly. Had their breakfast wrap with spicy chorizo which was quite nice, and the latte was excellent.

As a frequent traveler...I like to find my own little "pocket of tranquility"...and I have that now in Halifax. The staff is great, the WiFi is fast, the atmosphere is perfect and it's all topped off by the coffee.

If you are looking for great coffee/ frozen drinks and catch up via wifi then wired monk is great. They also had sandwiches and cake. Very handy for the cruise terminal if you are just there for the day too.

Went to the Wired Monkey because it was right up the street from the Westin. Great wraps. We liked that you could get the lunch wraps for breakfast as well. Ordered a cortado, which wasn't on the menu but the gentleman waiting us made it after I showed him the how-to guide from Wikipedia. It was great customer service.

Thank Watersjoe70
