I try to visit every time I am in Ottawa. My favorite is avocado toast. Their fries are to die for. So much more than a delicious bakery, everything is good! Expect a lineup, but so worth it!

who knew a deep fried pickles sandwich could be so good. Will definitely be returning. The ham sandwich was good too. Breads on the menu were tempting - maybe next time.

Some of the best bread I have ever tasted. Serves sandwiches, coffee, pastries as well. Funky warehouse location. Highly recommended.

Awesome brunch spot in Ottawa! The line is massive on weekends but it moves rather quickly. It's definitely worth the wait!

An interesting location, simple interior; however, it offers a variety of choices for your breakfast, coffee or lunch. Apparently their breads are very good. Certainly their choices of pastry to go with your coffee are delicious. The staff is friendly and helpful. Apparently, it is...More

This place is overpriced for the quality of food. I would know as I'm originally from Montreal and the food is way better there! I suggest you google another, smaller bakery within Ottawa. Good luck!
