The food choices were mostly plentiful, fresh, and tasty. Our group was able to sample a wide variety and nothing was disappointing. The service, however, left a bit to be desired. To be fair, it was somewhat busy, but it seemed to take the staff a long time to clean tables, refill food, and just keep the place looking presentable.... More

had a chance to stop in yesterday with a co-worker and enjoy lunch/dinner at the Green Door. Food was excellent. Lots of healthy choices. We both left satisified and feeling like we got a bargain for our meal. Should not have gone back up for dessert but could not resist the chocolate pecan cake. It was worth the trip. delicious.

Firstly, i'd like to point out that i'm not a vegetarian, but we were staying at the St. Paul residence and this place is across the street. I was very pleased with the food. Very tasty and I actually did'nt realize it was a veggie establishment until half way through the meal.... I thought it was a very cool concept... More

This place is a gem. Looks small from the outside but very big inside and the crowds keep moving. Staff are all friendly and helpful and seem to enjoy their jobs. The buffet is full of tons of yummy veggie options - best thing is that not all of s in our party of 5 were vegetarian - but there... More

I was visiting Ottawa and just happened to be driving by when this place caught my eye. Am I ever glad I stopped! Did some grocery shopping and picked up some organic staples that are not available at home and went next door for something to eat. For first time visitors... When you walk in the the door just head... More

Great place for lunch! The buffet menu is great with lots of different options! The ambience is simple but that's what it makes it really nice! Will go again if we have the chance!

Good quality and good variety of lunch foods, despite looking like a small buffet area (compared to, say, The Table restaurant, which also is self-serve vegetarian). Tasty desserts too, and tons of variety there as well! Wood seats and tables; not too crowded, and staff were friendly. I'd say this beats The Table for price as well as quality--though I've... More

Good food, well prepared at a reasonable price. (I find satisfaction in tastes and textures, knowing that what I eat is good for me. Fresh food served at the right temperature makes a difference.) There was plenty to like. Clean, Spartan. Cool on a hot summer day. Pleasant and helpful staff. Tight fit, cheek by jowl, no privacy. The best... More

My friends and I headed out to Ottawa/Quebec for hiking at Gatineau on the weekend. On our way up to our B&B in Ottawa, we dined at Green Door. The place looked busy and I found it to be simple and unpretentious. Food is served buffet style. They have all types of veggie appetizers, soups, main entrees, desserts, sold by... More
