A hip coffee shop in a middle of a semi industrial district in Ottawa certainly blew my mind. But the best coffee in town label was a definite seller. When you arrive to the front door you think that this is a warehouse and a coffee roasting "factory" rather than a coffee shop but in actuality it is both. The... More

One of the few places you can bring everyone in the family, including the dog. Kids think it has the best hot chocolate in town and I enjoy the ever changing art shows.

Stopped in for my flat white after dropping kiddies off to school. My coffee was perfection and on a whim had the blueberry molasses muffin. It was delicious, I don't often buy muffins but this one was the best I've had in a long time.

Walked with a friend for 30 minutes on a very cold day to try this place. Nice looking location, large, lots of seats. My friend ordered a de-caf and was told it would be a couple of minutes and the server would bring it over. I took a regular coffee thinking hers would be right there, but I had finished... More

So I'm always up for a new taste and found this place on the internet. Popped in and had an amazing chat with the two coffee roaster masters. Tried a couple cups of their coffee and felt it was a little too stale and asked for a different type, less bitter. Bought a package thinking it would be great...but it's... More

A truly Unique space (reconverted garage) off the beaten path where you will get to drink one of the best coffee in town (locally brewed and organic) as well as a seasonal selection of beers from greater Ottawa's best micro-breweries and some snacks. And it also doubles up as a gallery for local artists and, at times, as a performance... More

I have been buying their coffee beans for over a year. It is always rich and flavourful. Personally I like Babae's expresso and what they now call Swiss Water Decaf. They are both excellent.

I love this little place, its fast becoming one of Ottawa's coffee institutions. Situated in an industrial park it is an unlikely place of a coffee (and sometimes bar). The ambience is a bit on the austere side but there is an eclectic mix of chairs and couches to provide a place to sip you drink. Take out is an... More

Happy Goat is my go-to place for coffee in Ottawa. I've never had a disappointing espresso and I can confidently say it's the best coffee I've had in Ottawa in comparison to the other joints. The environment is really laid back and relaxing - it gives off a homey living room vibe. I recommend for everyone to try Happy Goat... More

It's great to find a place hip enough for hipsters, grandparents, paramedic's and everyone else. Great local coffee, awesome vibe and music.
