It is a smorgasbord of fabulous vegetarian/vegan foods, clearly labelled and beautifully displayed. Hot foods, cold foods, soups, gorgeous breads, luscious desserts, and on and on. I love to pop in here after a long day, and recharge.

For those who thing vegetarian food is limited or bland, the Green Door will come as a revelation. Great variety of food, and everything we tried was utterly delicious. Will move to near the top of our favourite Ottawa restaurant list.
