I decided to try this restaurant based on the glowing reviews I read. The homemade jam and molasses oat toast was delicious, although the latter was quite pricey as a side. Unfortunately the benedictine I ordered was very disappointing - the sausage was cold and the hollandaise sauce had an acidic, almost vinegary taste to it. My companion's Classico Benedictine...

I really wanted to like this place as it was a very cosy but breakfast was disappointing, especially after reading the great reviews on here. I ordered the Classico Benedictine thinking I couldn't go wrong but the hollandaise sauce substitute gave it a watery taste. The whole thing lacked any great taste or flavour. My partner's Gruyere omelette was better... More

Went here with a friend back in 2009 and it's become a staple choice to take people to anytime I have friends over to visit. The choice in bread and sides alone tells you that this place is a foodies' dream (molasses oat, rye, sourdough, buttermilk biscuit, banana bread, rosemary focaccia & gluten free bread). The omelets are familiar flavours... More

Jaks is the former home of Stone-Faced Dolly's. It has retained the charm and intimacy of the SFD's and has lost none of the culinary art. The menu is simple they have many fresh juices, various Eggs - The Benedictines, the Omelettes or the Kitchen Mac's. My biggest problem going here is deciding what to eat. I normally settle on...

This Café location is somewhat off course for short stay tourists visiting Ottawa. It used to be called Stoneface Dolly before they moved their successful restaurant business to La Corso Italia; however, we keep being attracted to the place because of its pet friendly attitude ( the outside terrasse greets us every summer). We endorse the laudatory comments seen on... More

Upon landing at Ottawa airport just after lunch, driving the main road into Ottawa, famished and looking for somewhere to eat, this was the first non chain place we could find. What a find it was! Being just after lunch, it wasn't busy at all. We all ordered various Kitchen Mac's. The waiter was very helpful. (young fella with glasses).... More

Love the new menu at Jak's!!! You have to try it. Anything from the all day breakfast to dinner and drinks on the new patio at Jak's. Always a good time with friends on a date or flying solo.

I tried the Bacon Carbonara. Generous serving, especially since it was just an appetizer. Jak's Bacon Carbona was delicious. Jak's Kitchen has delicious and artisinal quality food that is prepared by the Chef with a love and passion for food. It also has a relaxed atmosphere -- A great restaurant to take a date or a group of friends.

I was getting my car repaired at Speedy on Bronson and had two hours to kill. So Sheldon at Speedy recommended Jak's Kitchen Downtown Bistro down the street from him. It is a very small place that sits 24. The menu was very interesting. Since I got there at 11:30, I could choose breakfast or lunch. Breakfast is served until... More
