Great Breakfast.

Creative fresh and tasty. Eggs Benny. Try the Mish Mash. Or the Dude Burger if you're really hungry. Getting hungry just thinking about the place.

Who would expect to find lobster at a diner? Maybe not a whole lobster, but there it was, at the Wellington diner. We tried two versions: one was good, the other was excellent. The good one was the lobster macaroni and cheese. Nice and hot, but could have been a bit creamier. The masterpiece was the macaroni poutine: sweet potato... More

Had Sunday breakfast at the Wellington Diner with friends. Good location on Wellington with lots of parking on the local side streets and on the street. Lots of big windows in front so there is lots of natural light inside. Separate menu with the brunch specials. and a large selection on the main menu. Service and food was very good.... More

Stumbled upon this little gem in Ottawa this weekend. Looks like a place where the locals go. Very busy but great and friendly service. Excellent and varied menu. The hubby and the brother & sister-in-law all had the all day breakfast but I had the chicken Caesar wrap with fries. Hubby said his ham was excellent (nice smokey flavour) and... More

This year I'm travelling through Canada - always on the search for nice places to eat with delicious food. While spending a few weeks in Ottawa I got kind of stuck at this place, because you'll get a nice and affordable breakfast here and as much coffee as you can drink (that's an important fact for a coffeeaddict like me...

My food came quick and was more delicious than I ever expected. The wellington diner surpassed my expectations for breakfast food (particularly the natasha eggs benny I had) and really held its own in variety of lunch and dinner options. I've also tried the veggie wrap which with the grilled veggies, feta cheese and crisp lettuce was a satisfying savory... More

This diner was recommended so I gave it a shot with 2 buddies. We arrived for lunch around 1 pm. The last thing I noticed from the menu was the chicken pot pie with a biscuit topping, at $14 expensive, but bet it would be good!! Our waitress asked if we wanted onion rings in place of fries, so we... More

Service great, seated right away, water brought and coffee order taken quickly. Place full, but not too noisy. Varied menu for brunch, hard to choose! Neptune omelette had decent amount of lobster I could actually taste in large pieces.. Excellent! Ordered the bowl of cafe latte for 3.99 as opposed to the cup for 2.99. It arrived in a big... More

Our meal was tasty and plentiful and our server, Dollie, beyond pleasant and helpful. We ordered 2 'Natasha Benny' and our slight menu substitutes were added without a problem. Actually, they were even better than requested! Prices were very reasonable. Great location, the atmosphere very casual and relaxed - old-style (how we miss that) with free on-street 90 minute parking,... More

Very good food! Ordered brunch in for the whole fam and it was great. The eggs bene were on the verge of being overdone but were good. The homies were good but some were over cripsy. Coffee was good - even when delivered. The pairing of this place with skipthedishes delivery was excellent.
