I drop in here regularly and love their bagel sandwiches. They also serve some Chilean pastry and other specialties. They bake in -house and use a wood fired oven. Owner/operators are charming and friendly. A terrific spot!

We stumbled on this place a couple of years ago and it's been a go to whenever we're in Ottawa. The bagels are great and the breakfast sandwiches, which are served all day, are delicious. (Also a prefect hangover cure.) The number 3 on an...More
