Expensive for sure, but lovely smooth tasting expresso coffee beans. You can get your one pounds packages in two half pound bags.

Popped in on a rainy day and was greeted by friendly staffer. Had a delicious panini and a scrumptious pecan square. Nice atmosphere, clean but a little small. Really enjoyed the coffee and the pleasant non stressful environment. This is a terrific little spot and I will definitely make it a regular stop on my route, especially given the lack of Starbucks/large chain grief and bustle.
Did I mention, the coffee? It is really, really good.

We purchase our coffee beans from there all the time. Very good selection of freshly locally roasted beans. Our house guests always complement us on the coffee we serve.

Thank you Francesco!!

Title says it all. Delicious and great selection. Prefer to buy my own beans and grind at home and there is no comparison. La Tierra Co-op in gatineau makes some great coffee, but this is better.

Amazing coffee. Certainly among the best in Ottawa. Eat first, though, as there aren't many goodies and those on offer aren't always inspiring.

Not the most child/stroller friendly place: there are several steps up to go in, and no high chair. I am happy to have it as my go-to place for adult conversation, but would be there much more frequently if it were easier to bring a baby.
