Gold Winner Two If By Sea Cafe

Silver Winner Glitter Bean Cafe

Bronze Winner Dilly Dally Coffee Cafe

Ten years after opening Two If By Sea—a near instant classic in downtown Dartmouth—in late October, founder (and the butter-lover behind the cafe’s monstrous croissants) Tara MacDonald announced she was retiring from the coffee biz and TIBS neighbours and Yeah Yeahs Pizza owners Josh Nordin and Dean Petty (also of Anchored Coffee) were taking over. “Ultimately this place is a fucking institution and there’s no reason to make major changes,” says Nordin, adding he’d like to bring back some old TIBS community-focused traditions, like its dinners. “It was the right opportunity, right fit.”
