Worked across the street for some time and used to visit weekly. Food is old time diner style and a visit takes you back to sitting on a stool and having lunch with your gran. My standby is always the hot turkey sandwich - plenty of food and good quality too - lots of real meat. Now, that said, food... More

Nothing fancy but good cheap breakfast while waiting for various tours to start. Had to ask for coffee refill and got half a cup!

We stopped by around 10pm to sit on the patio as we were thirsty and wanted to have something quick to eat and drink. It took about 10 minutes for us to be able to order (and it wasn't very busy - 5 or so tables for 2 servers). 20 minutes later, we are told that one of the beers... More

We were drawn in by the large patio area in the centre of Sparks St. for a late lunch. First came the beverage order. "I'd just like a glass of water, please" The server said they don't serve water on the patio because the glasses might break and make a mess. (Yes, that's really what she said) However, I could...

We went for breakfast as a family of five, two adults and 3 kids. We were seated quickly. The menu had all the typicial breakfast fare.I had a BLT, which was excellent. The bacon was crisp and not a bit fatty. How are restaurants able to achieve this when I can't at home! It would have been nice if there... More

This is a great little breakfast stop just around the corner from the Lord Elgin Hotel. The service was fast and food was plenty and tasty for a morning start. Can't beat the $4.99 special on your way to visit Parliament Hill.

We had dinner here on our 2nd day in Ottawa, as we were desperate to find a place that serves rice (other than Chinese resto). We were not disappointed with this place. We had Kebobs and Lebanese Combo (Kafta). Definitely worth visiting when strolling by Sparks Street Mall.

We had 1 hour to eat. Saw this restaurant not so busy, and the menu items seems to be something the kids would like. 30 mins later after we ordered, the waitress tells us that the order got lost and needed us to tell her the order again. We've got 15 min left. The waitress did not even apologize for... More

Even after people we're mean to her, our waitress still kept a smile one and made sure we were happy and it was hot and busy for a Friday after lunch. The kids enjoyed their pizza and pasta and my husband liked his wings. It wad also nice when the gentleman from the kitchen came out and asked if we... More

The food alone is a 3.5 but the excellent and friendly service plus sitting on an outdoor patio earns them a 4 rating. Plus they have outdoor music :)
