Saturday Breakfast at Maxwell's Plum, Halifax

We popped over to Maxwell's Plum on Argyle Street, Halifax, for Saturday breakfast last weekend. It is just about the cheapest meal you can get in this city - from 11am-3pm you pay $2 for toast, eggs, bacon and hashbrowns. Two dollars! Not surprisingly there was a line up outside the pub before it opened.

I have realized that the only things we have been writing about since we have been in Halifax this autumn have been food, restaurants and bars. Here is the only explanation I have for you: we spent many years exploring Halifax, every nook and cranny, museum, gallery, and park. Lately, eating out has been a way for us to continue trying new things, even when we feel like we've tried it all around here before. And yes, our frequent restaurant visits are also a good indicator that our current kitchen kind of sucks. I can't wait to have a real one that we actually want to cook in again.

  1. Mmmmm fries! I went there for breakfast a few years ago and loved it, but was a little concerned by the powdered orange juice - was it better when you were there?

  2. Looks like a hearty and delicious breakfast.

  3. Oh goodness that looks like an amazing breakfast! I am STARVING right now and would eat that up within seconds!

    Hope you're having a lovely day!


Let's talk.
