I have been to this place a few times and have ordered the portobello sandwich. It's my go to. My travelling companion always has the wild card chefs surprise. If you love your veggies this is packed full . Everything is very fresh. Desserts are good there to.

This place is a gem and a terrific find for a vegan or vegetarian in Halifax. A little out of the way but worth the effort to find it. The food was nothing short of scrumptious, terrific service and nice surroundings.

I was recommended by a friend to try out the Heartwood Cafe. I was skeptical to go at first as I had been told it served vegetarian / vegan dishes. I was blown away with the Spicy peanut butter rice bowl I had. Paired with the Pumphouse Blueberry Ale it was a very satisfying lunch. It is a shame that... More

I've only recently begun to eat a vegan diet (and my husband is still a full-fledged meat eater). This was my first foray into dining out eating vegan options. Firstly, let me say that the Mushroom Gravy is amazing! (Like- tastes like real beef gravy, where I know that if I didn't know it was mushroom gravy you could have... More

This was (sadly) our first meal in Halifax along their beautiful boardwalk. We were served by a lethargic teen and shared the Heartwood Bowl with some sort of miso/peanut sauce on it. Though it may sound delicious, it was just plain bland. I'm not convinced that Heartwood understands what seasoning is. On the bright side, their vegan cookies were absolutely... More

My wife, myself and a friend went to Heartwood tonight for supper prior to attending Shakespeare by the Sea's performance of King Lear (which was great). My wife and I had 2 different "bowls" with rice and our friend had a veggie burger with salad and home fries. Everyone thought their meal was excellent and that our server was prompt,... More

As a celiac it is so difficult to find restaurants that truly deliver gluten free food and this one such restaurant. The food was very good, so much so, we went back the next night to celebrate my husband's birthday. The first night we sat indoors and the second night we sat outside which was kinda fun. I liked the... More

We only had cookies but they were all awesome. And not in the way that you convince yourself vegan baked goods are awesome. Real awesome. Stop by the waterfront location and see for yourself. The chocolate chip are LIFE.

I went here with a couple of friends. I'm a vegan, but the rest of our table wasn't. I had a Daily Special which was a lentil potato curry dish. It was very flavourful. The daily special was very reasonably priced at $14.95. It came with a choice of a cookie (all vegan) and a pot of tea. (There is... More

Down on the Halifax Boardwalk, which is amazing, the food you can get it limited to seafood, burgers, fries, beaver tails, etc. So finding Heartwood was like a god-send! We ordered an amazing lunch filled with fresh ingredients (salad rolls, quinoa salad, smoked tofu wrap, and lightly sweetened real lemonaid) and felt energized after. So thankful to have vegan options... More
