Went here for an espresso and a cannoli. The espresso is very good. Short and powerful the way it should be. The cannoli was very good. Made with fresh ricotta. Highly recommended.

The staff was friendly and service was excellent. We had a pumpkin cheesecake that was one of the best I had. The other biscottis were very good, freshly baked.

There are three of us retired “old guy’s” that enjoy going out for coffee in Ottawa. What we have done is go by reviews online and chose. What we find to be interesting. Simply Biscotti really fills that requirement due to its pleasant surroundings and excellent products. The coffee they use is Lavazza which is Italian roasted coffee with a... More

$1.50 for a medium coffee! WOW! The coffee cups were actually closer to a large size; the taste was amazing. We chose the "lobster tail" croissant. The cream inside was an absolute delight. Would go back to explore their lunch menu.

The pastries and coffees are great, but the service is pretty uneven at the Preston Street location. Sometimes the people behind the counter are oddly clueless, and other times they're great. I've gone there for coffee and cannoli a few times. The pastries are always fresh and decent in size, and the coffee is generally good, but there have been... More

Usually drop by here in the morning on the weekend to pick up a breakfast panini of Ham & cheese. Also,have sampled the cookies which hit the spot. Usually the place is busy so a little time waiting is in store but not overly long lineups.

At work today we had the pleasure to have pastries from Simply Biscotti. Everything was so rich and tasty that I didn't even need anything else for lunch.

Simply biscotti is your typical neighbourhood café but with a little touch of deliciousness. The coffee they serve is of excellent quality but the best part is the yummy pastry selection. I've tried several over the years and was never disappointed. The restaurant has cozy seating upstairs and in the summer, you can make use of their outdoor patio. You... More
