From the beginning, Halifax has been a special place for us at Boxcar. 

When we decided to expand beyond Toronto, we knew it had to be in a place we loved; a place that excited us and with which we shared a passion for beautiful landscapes and beautiful ingredients born of hard work by people who care.  Situated at the corner of Sackville and Market streets, in the reinvigorated Dillon Building, the natural beauty of the space felt like the perfect canvas for us to share what we love with the east coast.  With over one hundred seats and a sidewalk patio, Boxcar Halifax offers the full extent of our coffee, wine, and beer programs alongside a full kitchen, fed by seasonal Nova Scotian ingredients, offering food morning to evening. 

We're so proud to be in the beautiful east coast.


Boxcar Halifax is proud to offer—in addition to our multi-roaster cafe model and our rotating beer and wine lists—pastries and bread from Birdies Bread Co. This location also offers rotating morning, lunch, and evening food menus fuelled by amazing seasonal ingredients from small producers around Nova Scotia.  On Saturday and Sundays, a full brunch menu is offered between 10am and 3:30pm.
