"You Gotta' Eat Here"!!

My Son and I saw this restaurant featured on the tv show "You Gotta' Eat Here"...and they aren't kidding!!! It's amazing that this tiny little spot, tucked away in Gatineau, is such a hidden gem! Without seeing the show, I would have probably never known it was there? We headed out to make it right... read more

I'm a big brunch fan. I've eaten pretty much every brunch Ottawa has to offer and this place has the best food by a long shot. It's very small, and very busy, so you may have to wait, but it's so worth it. Come when you're not in a rush. The brunch options are always creative, fresh and delicious, with... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. We ate beef and chicken sandwiches. They were very good. Well balanced flavors that went well with the homemade lemonade. A little expensive at 9 dollars per sandwich. Then bought a premade poulet a la creole FOR 2 to go and 2 pastries. Total cost 64$... I wasnt impressed with the chicken dinner AT... More

We gave this place a try after searching for somewhere in Gatineau yo go for breakfast. They had the most incredible pastries (a box of which we took to go) and French toast sandwiches with pork roast and apple...delicious!

We went for brunch (opens at 10) a very warm Saturday of May. Ordered a Dutch baby as well as the Gauffre (waffle). The food is definitely excellent and the portions are big; the Dutch baby is very very sweet, although there's enough pork belly to up the protein count; the Gauffre was less sweet and was smaller but had...

This tiny little place situated in a residential area of Gatineau is a little gem. First off, if you want to have a brunch there, you need to get there early in order to get a seat; a lineup will quickly form before it even opens and they don't take any reservations. Their menue consists of 3 to 4 dishes... More

Chez Edgar is one of my favourite places in the Ottawa area for brunch. I've been there numerous times and I have to say I am never disappointed! The Dutch Baby is a classic on their menu, which consists of a puff pastry with pork belly, old cheddar, apples and maple syrup! Huevos rancheros is also a classic on their... 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

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 out in the... More
