We stopped in for supper and the vegetarians were well-pleased but the carnivores even enjoyed the tasty entrées. Taco salad was crunchy and delicious, spicy peanut bowl was tasty and filling. Service was great, ambiance was cozy. We will be back!

It's been a while since I've been to this quaint little vegetarian restaurant but recently had a chance to have supper here with a friend. I had the veggie curry burger with a side of steamed greens - really tasty! The service was friendly and professional and the ambience is cozy and charming. This spot is definitely worth a visit.

We start off each new year as vegan (for many reasons) so always looking for new places, wildcard pizza = amazing! I will be back for the vegetarian menu once the vegan thing ends!

Have had good luck with this place so far. Havnt had a bad meal. The daily special is always good bang for your buck. Also you can being your own wine, which is good if you make your own. A must for vegan and vegetarians!

Although I am bias, as I have been eating here regularly for over 10 years ( and it's in my neighbourhood)... Heartwood remains my Halifax favorite. I can always count on great cookies and teas, yummy desert, and most importantly hearty and nourishing meals. Heartwood got a liquor licence a few years back, so you can also enjoy some great...

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
