Nice place for Sunday brunch

Love this place. Great coffee and food! Although this morning there was a LOT of mayo in my otherwise delish bacon/egg sandwich... The desserts are great...

Everytime I've been (at least 7 times or more) I have loved what I ordered. The sandwiches are just great (love the bacon/egg/croissant) and I love their squares (especially the peanut butter ones). This place is a gem - relaxed with very cool artwork. Worth visiting.

We heard about this place from You Gotta Eat here, so we decided to give it a try when visiting our daughter in Ottawa. It turned out to be the perfect spot for brunch. Although there were many interesting choices for brunch, I immediately honed in on the Huevos Rancheros waffles as the choice, and I was not disappointed. One... More

The vest waffles we have ever had. So light & fluffy. Croissant sandwich was great too. My latte was yummy as well.

Another stop based in You Gotta Eat Here. There was a small wait to get in on a Sunday afternoon at noon. The wait was worth it though. We bothe had the Benny waffle with bacon. The meal was delicious! The hollandaise sauce was yummy, the bacon was thick and crunchy just the way I like it and the waffles... More

So agree with other comments re lax staff. It almost seems like they are hung over-can't tell if it's alcohol or drugs. Everything is attitude & slow reactions eg: cleaning coffee bar, food served timely while still hot, umpteen tables filled with unserved people in dingy environment. What gives ? Not worth a return when there are so many other... More

Been here several times with my teenage children and am never disappointed. Always leave a bit guilty of over indulging :). Will look to give a 5 once I experience the music in the evening.

We went to Pressed for Sunday Waffle Brunch after trying some of their takeout snacks and loving them. We had 'Waffles Benedict' (3.5/5 - the eggs were very vinegary) and 'The Hangover' (4/5 - the gravy was overpowering to the cheese and brisket) with unlimited coffee (5/5 - great roast, great temperature). The service was very fast. We will go... More

Thought we would try the popular "waffle brunch" with a few friends a few weeks ago because we've heard "rave reviews." First of all, you order your breakfast up at the cash. I had asked for a slightly modified version of the waffle (by modified, I was asking for them to not put all of the toppings on the waffle,... More
