Description: Oh So Good Desserts and Coffee House was established in 1994. The original idea behind the café was to replicate a German Berlin-style coffee house. Today it has evolved into a place which offers a vast array of decadent desserts to arouse any appetite. Our drinks are uniquely crafted and our coffee is always blended to perfection. We specialize in cakes and offer over 35 different types at any given time in our downtown location (25 York St.). We have recently opened a new location in Westboro (261 Richmond Rd. W.) We serve many of the same desserts found Downtown in addition to a food menu. Our food menu is still evolving to better satisfy customer demand. We also offer alcoholic beverages in Westboro to compliment our menu. In addition to excellent coffee and dessert, we display the work of local artists. The art is regularly rotated and the pieces are for sale by the artists. Be sure to stop by either location for a sweet taste you will never forget!

“Decent cake, overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

Visited mid afternoon with my husband. Walked in and order a slice of cake from the cooler. The cake was delicious but not worth nearly what they were charging---$8.00! Did appreciate that ice water was available for the taking with forks and napkins.

“Fantastic date or friends meetup place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

Whether you have a sweet tooth or a hankering for dessert after dining in the market, you will be well-satisfied by the offerings in the dessert case at this legendary dessert go-to place!

I have been to this place before, but not being big on sweets I never indulged until just recently, after a birthday party with several friends.

Everyone's desserts were super-yummy, with great value for money portions(ideal for sharing, though you won't want to), a cozy atmosphere and interesting local art for sale on the walls. Definitely worth checking out!

“Best cakes in Ottawa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

This is awesome, a cafe where you don't have to sit next to the table next to you. Coffee good, cakes even better. One chap ran the entire place and did it well.
