We happened upon this place while exploring the Byward Market area. The coffee is great and so are the desserts. The owner is friendly and has created a nice atmosphere - a large roll up window with sun shining in, quiet jazz playing and the...More

We went for our son’s birthday. Delicious moist and flavourful carrot cake. Great carrot monster cake (name says it all). Fabulous death by chocolate cake. Tasty but sweet date square. Generously sized slices are $8 each. Excellent coffee - they roast their own beans. Not...More

I still don't understand the hype about Oh So Good. The desserts are below average, they don't have a lot of flavor, and they are expensive. I've visited a couple times to see if maybe my previous visits were just "a bad day in the...More

Came to the Westboro one. The place was empty and cold. The decorations on the walls are pictures for sale. The place is very gloomy and not welcoming. The women's bathroom is dusty. The cake slices are $8.50 but they're not made on premises. They...More

Very comfortable and welcoming little spot. Service is great and the selection of cakes and desserts is beyond amazing. Lots of choices for coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. If you're looking for high quality cake, this is the place!

Thats the third time i go there. However, i was extremely dissapointed this time. The cake was not fresh at all (at least 4 days old), and the piece was for $8.50 (very expensive!!! For its size and quality) and the coffee was cold and...More

Weirdly enough, I didn't have any desserts there, although it's primarily a cake shop. The London Fog I ordered was excellent, though, with a good balance between the vanilla flavour and the Earl Grey flavour. It was also fairly cheap as far as specialty tea...More

The cakes are wondrous and plentiful but the staff seem disengaged and there is a feeling like the best days of this establishment may have come and gone. The restaurant was not particularly clean, the price (OK for the area) were high and I think...More

Oh So Good Desserts and Coffee House was established in 1994. The original idea behind the café was to replicate a German Berlin-style coffee house. Today it has evolved into a place which offers a vast array of decadent desserts to arouse any appetite. Our drinks are uniquely crafted and our coffee is always blended to perfection. We specialize in cakes and offer over 35 different types at any given time in our downtown location (25 York St.). We have recently opened a new location in Westboro (261 Richmond Rd. W.) We serve many of the same desserts found Downtown in addition to a food menu. Our food menu is still evolving to better satisfy customer demand. We also offer alcoholic beverages in Westboro to compliment our menu. In addition to excellent coffee and dessert, we display the work of local artists. The art is regularly rotated and the pieces are for sale by the artists. Be sure to stop by either location for a sweet taste you will never forget!
