This places microwaves your food on styrofoam plates! Croissants aren’t great , they are better at ‘Boulangerie Françaises’ on Murray St near Dalhousie St totally worth the few block walk. I live in the area

Stop for dessert every time i am in Ottawa. Great selection of french pastries. Fresh and packaged super nice if you are bringing to someone's home. Chocolate eclairs, mocha opera, mille feuille with custard...so many options. Cookies, breads as well as a deli.

Stopped by here for some Coffee and cakes. Attention was drawn to the fact that Barak OBama visited this cafe on his visit to Ottawa. Nive bakery stuff and coffee.

I had a cajun chicken panini from here. Totally disgusting and unacceptable in my opinion. Few slices of tasteless chicken in a bare bun with a shriveled up piece of lettuce. Unbelievable that they are serving this garbage and that it is still popular. My...More

Crossaints are delicious...but the healthy dose of attitude you get from salestaff...best to shop elsewhere or wait till one goes to Montreal. If you speak English...avoid.
