These guys rock in the gelato department. So good and so many flavours to choose from. They also make other things such as sandwiches which are very good. Had their beet salad one day and was suitably impressed.

We went 10 minutes before closing and it's still busy so we decided to have our gelato's to go. The flavours are ok.

Have visited several times for the best gelato in Ottawa. It is as good as in Italy and often better. Large choice of flavours. Prepare for a lineup as the secret is out.

Dropped in from a recommendation for a sandwich. Had the asparagus and tomato panini, and ham and cheese panini. Both were some of the best paninis we've ever had. Great toppings on amazing bread. Topped it all off with some coffee and gelato, which were...More
