Frankly, it’s getting harder and harder to find cheap food in Halifax, whether it’s at a restaurant or a grocery store. But as downtown Dartmouth continues to grow and flower with new small businesses, it’s become clear that it is also a destination for affordable dining.
Tiny, well-honed concepts like Souper Duper are neighbours to old greasy spoons like The Hungry Hut, and tiny Mom and Pop diners like Pita Paradise offer options wildly different than the pubs and cafes down the street, like the burgers and pasta at Jacob’s Lounge and the buttery tarts and squares at Honey & Butter in the New Scotland Yard Emporium.
It’s certainly not perfect, but there’s something special about Dartmouth these days.
