In an old warehouse setting. You order at the register. Extensive breakfast and bakery options. The croque madame was very good. Long line to order, but moved fast. Good coffees as well.

Sunday morning brunch and the perfect coffee, the best I've had in Canada. Big menu for breakfast and lunch and many pastries if you just need a snack. This joint defies the real estate adage about position; it's in an industrial area free of aesthetic...More

Art Is In Bakery was recommended by a local. It's in an industrial looking plaza and is in fact a working commercial bakery that sells pastries and food in a front retail area. We went on a Saturday morning. Place was busy but not insane....More

This place is overpriced for the quality of food. I would know as I'm originally from Montreal and the food is way better there! I suggest you google another, smaller bakery within Ottawa. Good luck!
