Bridgehead Coffeehouse on Bank Street is a great coffee shop. Fresh coffee made while you wait, lovely designs in your lattes. Staff very friendly AND efficient, the best combination. Don't miss the baked goods. My very favorite choice is their ginger cookies, a large and yummy cookie and only 240 calories (just in case you're counting). If you want to... More

I fell in love with Bridgehead coffee last year on a visit to Ottawa. Every time I visit, I find a way to get to a Bridgehead location to pick up whole bean coffee to bring home with me.

this Bridgehead is not at all cozy, but rather cold and uninviting: nothing soft and warm (e.g. easy chairs, carpets, window or wall coverings) to relieve the cold stone interior; too many of the seats were metal stools, totally uncomfortable. The place in general, including the washroom, was on the neglected, poorly maintained side. Drinks (hot chocolate) were not hot;... More

Many locations in downtown Ottawa. They generally have a gluten free option in the form of a muffin or loaf. Great spot to grab a quick breakfast on the run.

I have coffee here often and recommend this place because I find the service and the quality of the products much higher than in other competitors. It does though often get very crowded.

Had the steel cut oats with fruit preserve and a side of yogurt. It was just what I needed to get my day started. Coffee of course was great. Funky place - looked like an old bank or lobby of some sort. There are many of these chain coffee shops around town but they all serve the same equally great... More

Because sometimes all you need is a PB&J to start your day ... #comfortfood Bridgehead is a local Ottawa waterhole (coffeehouse). It has locations all over the city. The Bank & Albert location is a convenient one as it is just beside one of the major transit arteries in the city. They have a number of desserts (cookies, squares) &... More

Hot day, tired, not sure where we were going, needed coffee. Oh look! Spacious, air-conditioned, upmarket coffee shop. Wifi. Seats. Cups of the elixir of life, made from good beans by skilled people. A creative mini-lunch of figs, dates, nuts, and cheese. I'd go here any time.

Scheduled a meeting here while I was in town ... I had a latte made to perfection and a breakfast wrap ... my guest had a tea and raspberry scone. Both of us enjoyed the drinks and snacks and I like the vibe of this place. Servers were friendly and efficient and free wifi.
