Description: 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!

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 aroma of fresh ground coffee. We came back the next day for more! Be aware that this site offers only coffee, tea and other beverages and desserts ... no meals.

Stopped here for birthday cake after a visit to the escape room next door. Nice place...very busy on a Saturday night in the market. $16.00 for 2 pieces of cake. It was pricey but good and generous portions. Procedure: you walk around the counter to the side to see the selections and then place your orders at the front

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 cheap - over $40 for three of us - but worth it. Yum. Yum.

My family and I went one Saturday afternoon at Richmond Rd location. It was dark and uninviting setting but a huge place. We had couple of slices of cake to try and it taste good not really, really good. There have great selections of cakes. I wasn't expecting a thin slice for the price of $8. My coffee is quite sour. I was expecting that they have a good coffee since its a coffee house as well.. The young lad who served us was not that customer-service oriented as he won't even smile and say thank you. His facial expression is like sending a wrong message to us. Definitely, will not come back.

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 books", but I will not be returning.
