Location is not easy to find as it is in very secluded spot. Yet the place is always crowded, therefore be prepared to wait in a line. The place offers breakfast and brunch menu for weekends.During weekdays there is lunch menu as well. This is not a "fancy" place and Industrial setting makes it somehow special. Food is creative and... More

Every time I go in I tell myself to try something new but I always go with the Ham and Cheese Croissant - to die for! The other cool thing about this place is that it's right beside The Orange Art Gallery which I find to be one of Ottawa's most laid-back and cool art galleries!

Obsequious solicitude and charming romanticism are missing. Industrial setting of an ex-warehouse so not a place you chose for the décor. Yeah! It’s busy, not for its ‘trendyness’ but for the really really good bread that surround tasty sandwich fillings and so much more on offer. There is a long queue? It goes fast. If you are two or more,... More

This place is a great for lunch. Get there early to beat the rush. All the sandwiches and soups looked great. Had the chicken ceaser sandwich with clam chowder was not disappointed. Place is very busy but the staff do an unreal job to handle the waves of people. Try the special poutine as well.

This is one of those places that people will either love or hate! There is so much going on at one time that you can either view your experience as fun and entertaining or you'll be reaching in your bag for some Advil for the headache you'll develop while eating here. Location/Exterior: When you pull up in the parking lot,... More

I try to visit every time I am in Ottawa. My favorite is avocado toast. Their fries are to die for. So much more than a delicious bakery, everything is good! Expect a lineup, but so worth it!

who knew a deep fried pickles sandwich could be so good. Will definitely be returning. The ham sandwich was good too. Breads on the menu were tempting - maybe next time.

Some of the best bread I have ever tasted. Serves sandwiches, coffee, pastries as well. Funky warehouse location. Highly recommended.

A bit of the path but well wort the drop. Parking is free for 90 minutes which was more than enough we we dropped there for lunch. The place is nice, industrial and eclectic. We had excellent sandwiches and their coffee showing some latte art was pretty good too. Service was and receive with a smile. I'm keeping this location... More

Awesome brunch spot in Ottawa! The line is massive on weekends but it moves rather quickly. It's definitely worth the wait!
