Our family dined at the Elgin Street Diner twice during our stay in Ottawa and had a fantastic experience each time.
In this era of food that fell off a Sysco truck and slacker service, ESD really stands out. Diner food, yes—but delicious and obviously made from scratch.
Service was friendly and efficient, refills without asking, hot food arrived hot and cold food arrived cold. The ESD Poutine is extraordinary, as are the burgers and milkshakes. For breakfast, you can't go wrong with an omelette (although two of us opted for the bagel-cream cheese-smoked salmon and loved that, too). Quality ingredients were evident in every dish we tried.
Our family heartily recommends ESD—and we're looking forward to returning to dine there soon!
