Went there twice, most recently last winter for coffee and dessert (no meals). Everything we had was average, nothing really stood out, but was passable. Unusual art for sale on the walls. Location was great at Clarence and Sussex and there is a fun fountain in the alley beside the restaurant. The service was slow as many have described.

Visited Memories in Clarence Street, Ottawa for desert & coffee after an evening out and the deserts are to die for! Very friendly service and a nice comfortable feel to the restaurant. In fact, we enjoyed the coffee & desert so much we returned the next day for lunch which was equally enjoyable. Overall, excellent friendly service, good value for money and a very enjoyable experience. Will go back when we next visit the beautiful city of Ottawa.

Giant slices of cake and pie, a decent coffee menu and, what looks to be, some nice light meals. Would return for lunch. This time we just had dessert.

We had a great lunch here with our children. Food was fresh and extremely tasty. The decor is lovely and the service was efficient. The only thing we didn't like was we split a sandwich for our children, that also came with a soup and the waitress advised us the soup could easily be split into two bowls. However, she didn't advise us that this would cost an additional $3 which we didn't have a problem paying but all the same we would have appreciated her letting us know this was the case rather than just charging this cost to the bill. Being a family on a budget, by the time you take into account hidden costs like this as well as tax and tipping it all adds up! All the same the food was great so we would still eat here again.
