I bought some assorted cookies at Boko as my contribution to an after-concert table. They were absolutely delicious. Yes, they cost more than PC Chocolate chip cookies, but these cookies, tarts and pastries are works of art. I highly recommend this place. You can find them by their hilarious cookies/no-cookies sign.

I have looked all over Ottawa for a croissant I judge to be best in town.This is it.Surprisingly there's nothing French about the owner.Tasting is believing.Lots of excellent fresh baked goods such as cookies,pies and breads.Try it,you'll like it.One thing is beware of parking on Elgin.Pay or be ready for a ticket.

If you are in Ottawa anytime VISIT HERE. Whether you are looking for sweets, fresh bread, or their savoury items this place will never disappoint! Their line of chocolate bar related cookies and their mini hand pies are better than anything comparable! It can be a little pricey but trust me, you'll thank yourself later (until you get on the...

Whenever we're on Elgin, we make sure to stop there. They have a variety of homemade cookies: s'mores, mars, m & m, skores, and much more. Although a bit pricey, about 2$ per cookie, you get the 7th free and they are pretty good sizes.

love this place; one of the best 12 grains bread and they may great pies that you can use for occasions instead of attempting to bake yourself

Love their savoury rolls - ham and cheese, spinach, etc. The cookies are whimsical and delicious, decorated cakes from these guys are spectacular and affordable! The pies tend to be a little too much pastry, not enough fruit for my taste.

We were walking along, minding our own business, when the amazing looking cookies, in this otherwise nondescript bakery, caught our eyes. If you buy 6 items, you get one free, so we bought a selection of very creative cookies to take home. As we cut them in half and shared them (so we could try them all), over the next... More

The bakery is locally owned and tiny but what they have to offer is all good and fresh! It is worth dropping in and buying pastries.

Passed by this little bakery on the way to dinner and was lured in by the different cookies in the window. A lot of the cookies were chocolate bar infused - think chunks of coffee crisp, skies, caramels, kit Kats, etc... We picked 7 cookies: Coffee Crisp, Kit Kat, Smores, a bright pink Cotton Candy one, Ginger & Molasses, and... More
