This is a little trendy area of Halifax that's great to stroll around, or to stop for a coffee or meal. Restaurants are a little more pricey than other places in Halifax but it does have a nice vibe!

Halifax's secret neighbourhood hangout, this is a good place to visit for some local hangouts. Maybe getting a bit more commercial than it once was, but still a good standby for getting away from the main sites.More

Unique area of Halifax to browse. Great little shops from yarns to food. Unique little restaurants that provides great appetizing choice of foods for lunch, brunch or dinner ie Epicurious and smaller cafes. Liquid Gold is there also . Amazing Balsalmic Vinigers. Loved it.
