The new location is not easily visible from the street but it's now a larger café with a lovely outdoor patio. Very laid back & rarely over crowded. Great sandwiches & desserts.

The restaurant is spacious, but the waitstaff was limited when we visited. It was hard getting their attention, but when we did, they were pleasant and accommodating. The food wasn't anything special or impressive.

Had two slices of pie: one triple berry and one blueberry. Both tasted days old. Service extremely inattentive. Have been before but they seem to have lowered their standards. Love to support local businesses but will not return to this one.

We first discovered this lovely place on our last trip to Ottawa. What a hidden gem! It is off the beaten path just across the street from the National Gallery. There is an indoor restaurant but also a lovely terrace. The food was really good....More
