Best breakfast in town, and served ALL DAY! Open 24/7, a must go in the ByWard Market. Family friendly, a staple in town!

If you plan on visiting make sure you bring your patience. I can't review the food as there was such a rush and the hostesses clearly incapable of handling it that we were never seated. We were told ten minute wait, waited 20 then found out we had been scratched from list as seated when we saw someone who arrived after us be seated. If you know your place is limited in space, popular, and prone to lineups then you should train your staff appropriately.

I've always wondered why Zak's is such a big deal in Ottawa. The food is okay (the milkshakes are great), they don't accept debit (which is irritating, you have to use their ATM), but it IS open 24 hours and the food is decent.

Cool diner. Has that old fashioned look to it. Ordered a regular breakfast. Eggs, bacon, homefries toast, coffee. It was nice to see it came with some beans. The food was good but a little pricey.

Zak's has the BEST BREAKFAST in town, you have to try their POUTINE! This place has an awesome atmosphere, and all time classic! The staff is attentive and very friendly, service is quick, our food came promptly, and it was DELICIOUS as always.
I would highly recommend you check it out if you haven't before! TWO THUMBS UP!
