This groovy little bakery, housed in a commercial complex in a rather out of the way part of Ottawa, has a huge reputation and the busy-ness of the place at 2.30 in the afternoon attested to this. The Croque Madame was a chunky grilled sandwich,...More

Don't be fooled by the location in an evolving yet decrepit-looking city "landmark"!

Very casual, warehouse atmosphere but good food and great service. Cafeteria style ordering but food brought fairly promptly. Great place for baked goods but also nice specials, salads, quiches etc.

Listen, I often eat at places deemed pretentious or "too hipstery" because let's face it, pretentious hipster joints have the best coffee and booze! ;) But all jokes aside, this place is grossly overhyped. Huge lineup, awful layout, and an overcomplicated process - a line...More

Fantastic little restaurant in a quirky location. Great, fast service! Good place for grabbing a quick bite, some hearty soup or some comfort food! By the way, fried pickles are the bomb.

This place is overpriced for the quality of food. I would know as I'm originally from Montreal and the food is way better there! I suggest you google another, smaller bakery within Ottawa. Good luck!
