Totally forgot that Nate's re-opened on Merivale after closing on Rideau. For the last few years I've been a bit mopey when walking past its old site. Found its new incarnation just yesterday (I am a bus taker, so I don't get up to Merivale often for shopping on the strip). Whilst walking from one mall to the next - low and behold - there Nate's was. I had the classic smoked meat on kaiser bun and friend had the latkes. They were both wonderful. The service was excellent. We left very happy with full tummies ready for a Saturday afternoon nap.

Super morning atmosphere, hustle\bustle, exceptional service and breakfast was the fast\economical and server offered advice on where to visit in Ottawa. Definitely a place to eat on Elgin Street, Ottawa

It's so nice to have a well established, good deli in Ottawa. While the smoked meat is not as good as it is at Schwartz's, Lester's or Snowdon Deli in Montreal it is pretty darn good. You can have latkes or verenekas or chopped liver as well as the usual restaurant fare. The decor is typical deli. The service is very good with a very pleasant and friendly staff. Good value for the money. I'll be back.

We often enjoy breakfast at Nate's. They offer a good choice of deli foods, with delicious varenikes served with sour cream, even for breakfast! They have a full breakfast menu. The service is warm & professional. The parking is ample & convenient in their parking lot beside the restaurant. This is a pleasant place to enjoy friends and a tasty deli meal.

Nates. How I missed ya.....

The OLD Nate's on Rideau St., was a favourite hangout for decades before it and the legendary "Place Next Door" disappeared. A few unsatisfying reincarnations included a booth in the Rideau Centre and a small operation in the Colonnade business park. These options simply lacked the feel and essence of the old Nates. A little loud, waitresses who kibbitzed, strange looks when you asked for off the menu selections. Ah Nates......

Well, they are back, and good as ever. Dave Smith was in the house when we went to check it out. I was delighted to see the old Cora's (overpriced breakfast that took hours to arrive) replaced by Nate's, and the experience, sights, sounds, and smells brought back the Nate's of yore...

Stick to the traditional masterpieces: Great deli sandwiches! Not a fish joint, don;t be thinking about calories. Order a black cherry Cott's soda, loosen the belt, polish up any rusty old Yiddish expressions you have, and prepare to enjoy.
