We had cake for lunch two of the three days we were in Ottawa because there are just too many to chose from! Excellent cake and cheesecake, wonderful atmosphere, especially when you can sit on the patio while enjoying your desserts.

I have mixed feelings on the establishment. What I've tried from it is tasty, but some of their prices are just way too high for what you get. Tiny slices of cake for 7 dollars is unreasonable, especially because the quality, though good, just isn't...More

We had Ferraro Roche cake and strawberry cheesecake, a Canadian cappuccino and a milkshake. Cakes were huge! And super good. Their espresso is top notch. The location is a bit of a dive so don’t expect much, but staff are friendly and it’s got a...More

I went to the Market location and ordered a slice of the chocolate Birthday Cake. It cost almost 10$, with tax and tip. It looked really pretty but the taste was horrible, especially given the price - it was dry and dense and stale, and...More

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

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!
