Oh Edgar, let me count the ways I love you...

This is another one of those places you can't come to Ottawa and not visit. It's like visiting Parliament; you can't not go! Okay, so the place is extremely tiny. And with how busy it can get, the chances of finding a seat is quite slim. We watched from our counter seat a group of friends eat... read more

Weekday lunch starts at ten. Three sandwiches and two soups on the menu. Carrot soup was fantastic. Caesar panini disappointing as though nice flavor, the chicken was two large chunks. Dry, tasteless chunks that should have been more bite sized allowing the dressing etc to also.be part of the mouthful. Was hoping the chicken would be somewhat seasoned. The bread... More

I have been several time to Edgar with friends and family. The brunch menu is delectable: the dutchy is amazing but very, very rich. If you like opposing (or is complementary) flavours and textures, you will love the maple, cheddar, apple, crispy pancake mix. The huevos rancheros (or similar) is also a winner, with fresh guacamole. Everything is prepared with... More

A lovely neighbourhood café serving wonderful food. Always fresh and prepared with imagination. Tiny locale (serves 12 or so inside (and 4-6 more on the summer deck out front). Get their early and beat the take-out crowd as they do line up.

- Very tiny restaurant in Winter, in Summer there is a patio. - You should be early, there is always a long waiting line. - By far, the best brunch in The National Capital Region. - Everything is delicious, but Dutch Baby is my favorite, but Huevos Rancheros is another excellent option!

What a refreshing place to have breakfast. They do not offer the usual breakast choices but that is what makes it fun and interesting. The chef is very well know and appreciated - it's very obvious why once you have a meal there. It's just too bad that they don't have more seats as you're not certain to eat there... More

Edgar features Marysol Foucault’s best dishes. You’ll find fresh foods in a very small but warm and cozy atmosphere. Drop in for a warm bowl of soup or sloppy joe sandwich in the winter, or fresh salad and veggie juice in the summer. They also have a to-go menu for what’s-for-dinner and frozen dishes for future meals. Can’t forget to... More

No reservations, 14 seats and the food is amazing. They open at 10 and there's a waiting list all day. Fully stocked sweet counter.

Yes, a delight - for the eye, as well as the taste buds! This very tiny restaurant is, as others have noted, a real gem. If you want to have brunch - then, by all means, get there early. Our party of four, arrived well in advance of opening, as we knew that there is only one seating area that... More

You have to have brunch here at least once. Come 15 minutes before it opens so you get a seat. The place is very small but cozy. There are always 3 generous and delicious options. One is always vegetarian. There are plenty of goodies to take home, too. Ingredients are good quality, mostly local. Dishes are unique combinations. Portions are... More
