Phenomenal brunch

My girlfriend and I tried this place based on recommendations. Everything from the quality of our dishes to the service completely surpassed our expectations! As far as we're concerned, this is the best brunch in the region and we look forward to coming back.

I visited this place with my husband and a mutual friend in the summer and had a great brunch. It is a famous little place, and has been featured on 'You Gotta Eat Here'. There are usually 5 different choices for brunch, and the menu is a blackboard with the descriptions written on it. I chose a sweeter dish, with... More

on the spur of the moment we decided to drive over to Chez Edgar this morning. We luckily found a spot at the counter in the window - many people came after us - so our timing was good, just after opening. I'm not sure what my husband ordered, I should have taken a picture of the menu, but it... More

Over the course of a dozen visits, this out of the way place has become a favourite stop on cycling trips in the area. We have generally had one or another of the coffees offered and have always enjoyed them, no mean feat given the demanding tastes of the eclectic bunch that we are. The pastries were also a success,... More

Always fresh food and very good. Small little place that is worth stopping for a lunch. Dessert are always to dire for....the paninis are so good, interesting variations.

The service was excellent. Reservations are not accepted and our wait was 20 minutes. It was well worth the wait. Four of us had brunch and all rated the food, presentation, taste and service as A-1. Just a truly great experience all round. We will go back again. This establishment does not have a liquor licence.

Great breakfast selection and very tasty food. The Huevos Rancheros were amazing. Be there early though....lineups. We got there at 9:40 for a 10:00 am opening and we were 3rd in line. Tiny, tiny little place. Prices are higher than average, at about $16 a breakfast, and service isn't lightening fast, but it's all made on order, so that's to... More

wonderful panini's! We love stopping there for lunch while cycling the multiple bike paths in the Ottawa-Gatineau area. Today I tasted the very best home made salted caramel I have ever eaten! Yum Yum.
