My wife were out looking for a new place. We came upon the restaurant by chance. Glad we did and we will be back! I had the green eggs and ham. Really good. Bread is baked on site. Servers friendly. Prices are fair.

The lineup says it all -- worth the wait. Always a satisfying breakfast. Have been going there for years and never disappointed. Could tone down the heavy metal though (volume and intensity of the music) -- not very conducive to eating.

Had heard decent food reviews about the Baker Street Cafe so decided the 6 of us would pop in for a late lunch. what a mistake. The music volume was SO loud that we could not speak amongst ourselves for the entire meal...it was loud to the point I wanted to walk out and give up on waiting for our... More

Wow, impressive food and nice service. It does have the yuppie and hipster type feel, but if you can suffer that then you are in for an amazing breakfast, including a nice fruit salad.

My wife and I got to Baker Street around 9:30 so we knew there would be a lineup. Weathers nice, no worries. About 10 minutes in, the owner comes out the check the line and has mini muffins with him... amazing. We get inside our server team was fantastic. Food was epic, and tasty. We grab some cinnamon buns to... More

We are here at least once per month. Friendly personable service and lots of dependably wonderful food. Outstanding coffee! Everything keeps you going all day. Get there early on the weekend or you will be lined up for sure!

I have had the pleasure of eating here twice and want to return. I have eaten here for breakfast as well as lunch. For breakfast, I had the homemade cinnamon bun.... warm, sweet yummmmm. My fiance had the sausages and eggs. The sausages are bigger than breakfast sausages, and were delicious. Service was very good considering how busy they are.... More

Hollandaise on benedict was seperated and very little was given. EGGS were tiny but poached nicely though. WHY not use extra large eggs??? Omelette way overcooked. Coffee was bitter. Potatoes were uncooked, unseasoned and cold. Lots of staff who walk around looking very uninspired and not happy. $55 dollars with tip for breakfast for two people???? Wow.. ripoff

This is an incredible little gem that I hesitate to give a review on because it means it will just get busier. There are only positive remarks for the Baker St Cafe. The food is beyond belief amazingly good, and the service is wonderful, fast, and friendly. If you are in the Ottawa area make a visit to the Baker... More
