Came here for the morning coffee. Whilst the prices are a bit steep, they are not unreasonable and the quality of the coffee makes up for it. Their macchiato is the best one that I have had in a long time. Their selections of cakes/pastries...More

This groovy little bakery, housed in a commercial complex in a rather out of the way part of Ottawa, has a huge reputation and the busy-ness of the place at 2.30 in the afternoon attested to this. The Croque Madame was a chunky grilled sandwich,...More
