Halifax Café

Halifax Café is a quiet café at 187 Halifax Street not far from Hutt Street. It has a short menu of specialty lunches and can do a sandwich or roll. There is plenty of seating inside and outside. There was plenty of artwork by local artist Greg Longford adorning the walls when Merkel visited. It looks like the Halifax Café missed the main SALA 2010 programme but was part of the 2010 SALA on Hutt spinoff. The Greg Longford exhibition was part of this. His works are mostly oils and he shows he is the master of a number styles and techniques in this exhibition which is named "Figuratively Speaking".

The hot chocolate was $3.50 and came in a big white ceramic cup. It had a bubbly froth and sprinkle of cocoa which soon dissipated. The hot chocolate was too sweet and not particularly tasty.
