Popped in to looked at cakes and grabbed a couple sandwiches to go for lunch. $6 a sandwich for one slice of meat and single serve packet condiments. The mustard looked disgusting. If they were a buck or two, fine, but at that price, ridiculous! I will not go back for lunch. Gelato, yes, but don't go for a sandwich.... More

Nice location for gelato, pastries and espresso. Every time we are there we see lots of locals from the neighbour hood. Busy in the summer. Best choice after a dinner to walk there and have dessert.

Fantastic lunch and great desserts and especially great Gelato at this little unassuming restaurant with many deserving awards on the walls.

My husband and son ate here on a Friday night during our visit to Ottawa as they were attending a function across the street. My son declared that the spinach and ricotta pizza he had was the best pizza he has ever eaten. Yes, it was so good that we made a point of returning there on our last afternoon... More

We stopped to buy a few individual pastries for a dinner and all 4 were delicious but my favourite one was the he maple creme brûlée. We also had breakfast there the next day since we had a meeting across the street and once again, we were not disappointed: great chocolatine!!!

My kids like their pastas (manicotti) and I like the home-made soups and cappuccinos. We all like the 2 display cases full of pastries and chocolates, and 20 or so gelato choices. They also have self-serve water infused with lemon and orange slices, something that we appreciate on the steamy days of summer. They have a dozen tables inside (air-conditioning!),... More

Among the Best Gelato cafes in Ottawa. Tried so many flavours and so far my favourite were the Chocolate Brownie ice cream and the one with Dark Chocolate bits forgot what it's called but you'll know it if you ask for it. Plenty of delicious pastry and desserts from Creme Brûlée to Red Velvet Chocolate, Croissants and Cheesecakes. Espresso and... More

I used to live around the corner from here and I would ALWAYS take friends who were visiting from out of town. The dessert is always so delicious (especially ANY of the Creme Brulees! I would recommend this place to anyone who likes sweets. They are also open pretty late for a sweet snack. You will not regret your visit,... More

It's like being in a little Italian town coffee shop... The best pastries in town are made here. But the pizzas are out of this world. Made fresh when you order them, baked to perfection and with that italian flavour that you could only find in the old continent. Decor needs a little update and the patio area is not... More
