A friend and I went to Manotick to go to another restaurant which was closed for lunch on Monday. We went next door. It is a cafeteria. You order at the counter and someone brings your tray to your table. We should have known better because there was just one couple sitting at the front having coffee. Perhaps the coffee... More

French Cafe is located in a strip mall -Manotick Mews. The ambience is fantastic and the coffee superb- the food is beautifully presented and delicious. The owner Grace is a lovely lively lady who makes all feel welcome.

We were in Manotick early on day and asked a shop owner where we could find a GOOD cup of coffee...he immediately said "French Cafe". We were not disappointed! What a great little place! Awesome baking; amazing croissants and the coffee was delicious! This is well worth a trip, especially if you're already in Manotick.

Enjoyed a great lunch today with a friend and our babies. The turkey cranberry wrap was delicious and my cappuccino hit the spot. Employees were friendly and welcoming! I'll definitely be back :)

I have rode my bike to Manotick several times and always make a point of timing my stop there for lunch at the French Cafe. It's in a mall away from the main roads so is easy to miss, which would be a pity. The food is superb and quite inexpensive, and the staff are friendly and efficient. Whether you... More

The French Cafe is a warm welcoming cafe with bistro tables, a fireplace, television and an enthusiastic staff led by the incomparable Grace Aghostino. There's always something going on, whether it be an art exhibit, the latest fundraising effort for Manotick Project for Haiti, or a meeting of a local group. Buy a sandwich and have it grilled, along with... More

My wife and I visit the French Café usually a couple of times a week and we just love it. The Coffee and food are delicious, reasonably priced and prepared with obvious pride by the owner Grace and her staff. Grace is a very warm, giving and outgoing person with a zest for life that will pick you up even... More
