Restaurant/bar with artsy atmosphere

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, Bar

Not what the name suggests. This is a restaurant with an eclectic artsy atmosphere in the heart of Halifax’s bar and restaurant area. The Economy Shoe Shop consists of four different bars/lounges : The "Shoe", The Diamond, Belgian Bar & The Backstage. A number of vegan and vegetarian options including: oven roasted potatoes, vegetable spring rolls, hummus and pita, veggie burger, salads (including a mango papaya salad), and pasta. Monday night they have live jazz.

I liked the Economy Shoe shop. There were not a lot of vegan options but the dishes I had -- oven roasted potatoes and the mango papaya salad -- were very good. The tea came in a pot so it stayed hot which was important to me since I was soaking wet from walking in the rain for a while. But I wouldn't give this place more than a 4/10 if it wasn't for the atmosphere and the prices. The place has an eclectic atmosphere that is both beautiful/cool and comfortable. And for such a great atmosphere, the food was cheap (the potatoes were 3.50 for a big plate and the mango papaya salad was 8 for a huge plate -- much more than I could eat). The service was great too, especially given that I came with a group of 22 people. I can see why this is a local favorite. They just need to carry more vegetarian and vegan options.
