The perfect place to hang out.
Located in the beautiful town of Mahone Bay, The Barn Coffee and Social House is a great place to hang out and spend your time with friends and family. Why not grab a coffee and get some work done on our work tables, or grab a tea and book and hunker down for a couple of hours and forget time.
Want a little more peace and quiet? Why not get some lunch and a Kombucha and head upstairs and chill out for a bit. If you really must be outside we also have our fab gazebo out the back in our secret garden hidden away from the hustle and bustle.
Current Hours and Seating
Monday-Sunday 8-5 and most holidays – check our Facebook page for updates on Holiday Hours.
In the warmer months there is plenty of green space to enjoy your coffee and treats outside in the gardens where you can relax with your besties, family or put on a public display of solitude in our field of Forget-Me-Nots.
Offering you both good music and good coffee
We have teamed up with Ryan Cook for the release of his new album Old Faithfuls and offering you both good music and good coffee. We’ve roasted a special Guatemalan coffee that’s mellow and perfect for enjoying as you listen to Ryan’s take on some of his favourite old hymns.
With the purchase of Ryan’s new album, you’ll be mailed a sample of Sunday Silence – Old Faithful Guatemalan coffee. Order here: https://www.ryancook.ca/
Super friendly here
The staff and the owners are super friendly and welcoming. They have a great selection of coffees and pastries/quiches. The quiche lorraine is probably the best I've ever had. The staff were very smiley and open to questions. The owner came over and chatted with us at our table later and he was very welcoming and friendly.
Best coffee and fresh baked goods EVER
Our hotel concierge in Lunenberg recommended The Barn & Social House in Mahone Bay, about 15 miles away, for a relaxed drive - some sightseeing- and the best coffee around. What a great place! Not only were the owners there and working behind the counter, but the fresh baked goods were delicious to accompany the wonderful coffee (satisfying SF bay area java junkies like us). As we enjoyed the rustic yet elegant atmosphere, we struck up a conversation with a local couple who happened to be in for a coffee/pastry themselves. Such nice folks - we talked about travel, the local Mahone Bay economy, growing up in the area, health care, work and family. A simple social interaction, a coffee house extraordinaire, and a young couple building their own business made Mahone Bay a favorite spot in Nova Scotia.
The Best Chai Latte
My husband and I and our two young sons stopped in here tonight for some warm beverages to enjoy as we strolled the streets of Mahone Bay for the Scarecrow Festival. I had a chai latte and it was one of the best I’ve ever tasted. My son had a peanut butter smore cookie which I had a bite of and it was delicious. Amazing detail was put into the atmosphere here. Very welcoming. Free wifi. A great addition to Mahone Bay. We will be back for sure.
