Like this coffee shop, in the market but slightly out of the bar area. Pleasant clientele and artsy people, nice atmosphere inside and out. The coffee is good but high marks for a very good espresso. The service is good and they remember their regulars...More

Good coffee and homemade breads. Opens early 6.30. Seating is filthy. Too bad. A little effort and this could be a cool place....

Flat coffee is their best and as you see 4 cups as they made a mistake using the small cup first so they did another 2 for us

We went there on our way from the Andaz hotel to the National Gallery. It opens quite early in the morning although we showed up at 9 on a Saturday. The service was a bit lacklustre. We ordered the scones (cheese & jalapeno) and lattes....More

When traveling,. we try to favor locally owned business as much as possible when it comes to coffee. In Ottawa, we discovered Bridgehead! We had a cappucino crush and an iced latte : perfect ! Well balanced, not too sweet and with a "real coffee"...More

I like all the Bridgehead locations in Ottawa but this is one of my favourites. They make great lattes and have a nice little patio at the side. The Baristas are great! They have a nice Chai latte and good treats too!

I enjoyed the vibe in this roomy, comfortable coffee house on the edge of the Byward Market neighbourhood. Worth the trek off the market beat. Clean washroom.

I love to shop local when I can and I'm a fan of Bridgehead coffee. They have great staff who are friendly and attentive. I definitely recommend visiting them while you are in town.

I come here regularly. Great local chain which serves fair-trade coffee. Lattes are great, friendly service. It gets very busy at lunchtime on weekdays. Small patio in the Summer.
