We found that place while watching "you gotta eat here" on the food network and decided to give it a go next time we were in Ottawa. We went on a Saturday for the brunch. The food is just simply delicious, service is good and there is plenty of parking space around the building since it is a little bit... More

Took my friend for brunch yesterday.What a delightful experience. It is all about the food. We had the strata which was rich, filling and beautifully presented. Excellent coffee and sweets to end. Will be going back for the Huevos Rancheros plate...

I live nearby and did not know the place. When you travel the world you tend to ignore your own yard. Amazing place, you eat almost in the kitchen, observing the chef. Delicious brunch on Sunday morning. I was told that there were only 13 seats and you cannot book. So we waited by the door at 9:15 for a... More

What do you write about a restaurant? This place serves really good food, the staff is very friendly, the prices are ok and it's right located at one of monacos yachtharbours. Again food, staff, location and price - two thumbs up!

I live in Gatineau and had never heard of this little restaurant which happens to be in a restored home in a residential area. The menu and seating is limited but the food is amazing! It's wonderful to watch these young, friendly entrepreneurs bustling around preparing your meal in this open concept restaurant. We've had brunch there several times and... More

Visited for Sunday brunch as a group of 3. Pros: * The Dutch Baby was very good * Nice selection of yummy pastries Cons: * 30min+ wait outside in the rain for seats * Did not get a table, but 3 seats squeezed at the window counter * They sit 5 people at said counter in a space big enough... More

My boyfriend and I were in Ottawa for the weekend and saw some good reviews on this lovely place so we decided to go there. It's not a long drive from Ottawa at all, it took us about 15 minutes to get there. As soon as we got in there our waitress greeted us and already offered drinks so while... More

We happened to arrive and got a seat right away which made us lucky but waiting for food like this would be worth it. We tried the Dutch baby and the pea meal plate. They were both a perfect balance of flavours. The service was good, fast, and friendly. The portions were generous and we all left stuffed. We may... More

While the menu is not large during lunch each dish is well thought out and crafted. We arrived early and that was good as the place does fill up. We ordered the sandwich specials and the Asian chicken was great, the Mexican pork was good but lacked pizazz. The tomato/mango salad was divine, the spice level was perfect and it... More
