Gold Winner Java Blend Coffee Roasters
Silver Winner Two If By Sea
Bronze Winner Weird Harbour
If you had to pour a mug of Halifax it would be a piping hot cup of coffee from Java Blend. It’s been 80 years since the idea behind the North Street roastery and cafe was just a nugget in the brain of Theodore Sideris, and the family-owned business continues to hone in on what makes a great cup of joe: quality stuff, straight from the roaster. Now this coffee, and its home base, are institutions that the city wouldn’t be the city without. And that’s not just the caffeine talking (this blurb was fuelled by a cup of Sumatra), hundreds of voters agree.
