I love eating out and going to new coffee shops and these are my favourite places in town. I’ll be updating this page on the regular as I discover new spots. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions about them!
- Chez Lucien
The veggie burger plate is everything.
- Hintonburg Public House
Not necessarily my favourite food but I love the atmosphere for drinks/snacks!
- The Manx
I’ve only been here once but left feeling like I had uncovered a well-kept secret.
- Baker Street Cafe
Super-laid back place with classic breakfast fare that rocks my socks off. There is almost always a line-up but it’s with good reason and when you’re lucky they bring you freshly-baked muffins as you wait!
- Chelsea Pub
Love love love the vibe here for a casual meal and brew.
The most crazy, creative pizza menu!
- Pancho Villa
Mexican and margaritas oh myyy.
- Jak’s Kitchen
Cute brunch and lunch spot and with great daily specials.
- Tennessy Willems
This place is tiny and intimate and one of my favourite date-night spots.
- El Camino
I’ve only been once but it was a super fun (and delicious) night and I can see why this place is the talk of the town. Be prepared to wait for your table but if you go get a drink nearby they’ll text you when they’re ready for you!
Asian-Fusion in a super cool space.
- Khao Thai
In the heart of the market and super cozy. I’ve had their pad thai at least a dozen times!
- Johnny Farina
Delicious pasta and pizza options up the yin yang.
- Elmdale Tavern and Oyster House
Awesome vibe with such good seafood.
Definitely one of my most memorable dining experiences.
- Supply and Demand
We were ridiculously wowed by the food at this place. If you like seafood, you must go!
- The Green Door
A super casual pay-by-weight buffet with amazing selection.
- Cafe My House
Really creative vegan creations (think Buffalo wings and cheese plates) in a lovely location.
- Pure Kitchen
Bright and cheery space with a menu that is a vegetarian’s DREAM.
- La Belle Verte
An open kitchen that serves up some of the most flavourful veg fare I’ve ever had. It feels like a friend is cooking for you!
- The Ministry of Coffee and Social Affairs
- Arlington 5
- Happy Goat
- Thyme & Again
- Alice’s Village Cafe*
*These places are on the outskirts of Ottawa and a bit of a drive from the downtown core
Little gems in my hometown, which is about 20 Minutes from Downtown Ottawa!
- Cafe Mulligan
- Cafe British
Small plates in a modern but rustic room.
- L’Autre Oeil
It has a beer menu the size of a bible. If you like beer, you must go!
