Friday Favourites

I’ve been lucky to discover all sort of amazing places locally in the HRM lately. I thought I would share some of my new favourites!

Breakfast

Waffle Love opened up recently in my neighbourhood. It’s pretty busy around brunch time most weekends but I was finally able to snag an outdoor seat last week (probably because we were there first thing in the morning). The food was delicious and the service was incredible. They even brought some water out for Rigby, who was allowed to lay down in the shade next to the tables while we ate.

Butcher

Halifax has some great options for good meat. For the past few years I got most of mine from TapRoot Farm‘s CSA. When Highland Drive opened up in the Hydrostone, that was a great option too. I have to say though, my new favourite is the Bedford Basin Farmer’s Market. Paulo the butcher just a gem! He’ll take the time to walk you through how to best prepare and serve his fresh, local options. Plus, it’s always a bonus for me to watch my visiting father attempt to converse en Italiano.

Day Trip

Nova Scotia is just the BEST when it comes to day trip options. You can get almost anywhere fun within a few hours: the Valley, the North Shore, the South Shore…it’s all good! On a recent sunny day, I ventured only an hour west of HFX to Mahone Bay. It’s an adorable seaside town and just bustles with visitors to the local bakeries, antique stores, or just to see the quaint architecture or watch the sail boats. The Lighthouse Route drive is at treat in and of itself. Stop at Bayswater Beach and dip your toes in the ocean on your way!
