I have tried to like this place, I really have. I have tried to explore the variety on a couple of different occasions but alas I am always coming up with the same result. The eclectic burger options are good and there are some real...More

We have eaten here several times, and as a severe celiac it is exciting that I have never been sick once! The staff are warm, welcoming and knowledgeable, and the menu is incredibly varied and extensive. A newcomer to Ottawa, I have taken all of...More
