A go-to breakfast place in the neighborhood, I make it there happily every few months or so. A fun decor, changing from time to time, it is a nice atmosphere. I've ordered a range of meals, and am always satisfied. Keep up the good work.

A very friendly place with lots of regular patrons. Their all-day breakfast is a favourite. But........ they also have the BEST Club Sandwich in the whole of Ottawa !!!!!!
