Me, my husband, and two daughters were wandering downtown Halifax and stumbled upon Anna's. We were pleasantly surprised. There was lots of selection - breakfast, kid options, even burgers and fish. I am on a strict diet, but the staff were accommodating. I enjoyed the chicken kebab wrap and my kids had pancakes. We all enjoyed our food. The atmosphere... More

There was not very many people and they take orders cafeteria style so service was almost immediate. The folks who worked there were very chatty, in the very best sense of the word. Several choices and great prices. I see no reason not to go there. Nothing fancy and the decor is very plain.

A perfect spot to stop in and fuel up for your day out and about in Halifax. Located in the bottom of the BMO building it was a 2 minute walk from the harbour ferry. Had the chicken schawarma and Greek salad. Both were delicious. So much so I went back again for more a couple days later. Grabbed a... More

This is a nice little restaurant for a hearty breakfast, and their lunch menu looks good too. We wanted something different than Tim Horton's, and didn't feel like paying $17 each for breakfast at our hotel. This restaurant is just great for what we wanted. Two eggs done however you want them, two slices of toast with butter and preserves,... More

The staff was very unfriendly. No greetings at all when we walked in, almost felt like we weren't wanted there. Eggs were overcooked, bacon undercooked, and the French toast was soggy. Between four of us only one was happy with their meal. Definitely would not go back.

I work near Anna's and frequent the restaurant at least once a week. I purchase the same dish every time... the Falafel platter. This is a great deal at less than $10 Cdn, taxes in. If you're travelling and looking for reasonably healthy food, this is the ticket. For me, the most difficult thing about travelling is finding a good,... More

We stopped for breakfast twice during our stay in Halifax. The food was very good and the price was right. Anna was very accommodating and made the extra effort to make sure our meal was to our satisfaction. It is not very often you can get a home cooked meal with such personal attention while travelling. Great location steps away... More

We had breakfast here and the eggs were overcooked, the fruit old, and a bit overpriced ($8 for 2 eggs and toast). If you're desperately hungry, it'll do, but I think the breakfast at Tim Hortons across the street would have been better!

For those who have been to Anna's Cafe before, take note they are now in a new location in the lower level of the Bank of Montreal Tower at the corner of George St and Upper Water St. Very good breakfast, great value and the staff were very pleasant. Nice little place.
