Coffee Bar - Serving up a slice of history!
The Coffee Bar is closed until further notice.
The scent is unmistakable. It’s freshly brewed coffee, and the aroma alone is enough to perk you up. Follow it and you’ll find the Halifax Citadel Coffee Bar and Soldier’s Library - a warm, welcoming café with a distinctly 19th century flavour.
Tucked away in the historic Cavalier Building of the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, this used to be the library for the soldiers of the 78th Highland Regiment. Today it’s transformed into a cozy, relaxing space where tasty refreshments are the order of the day. And the only hint of its past life is the books that line the shelves.
Come in. Take a seat. Enjoy one of our light, delightful lunches, or our delicious home-style sweets.
