I wanted to pick up something up near the Shaw center to eat on my train ride home. This place is great, it had tons of choices. I had delicious homemade sandwich with the works and pesto pasta for just over 10 bucks.

I stop in here when I am at the Rideau Centre, to buy homemade fettuccini or linguini that I can cook at home. They also sell delicious tiny gnocchi which is prepackaged and I also cook at home. Any time I stop in here, it is always very busy. Even with lots of customers, the cashiers are very quick and... More

This is a true wonderland. Every amazing item in the store is thoughtfully displayed and the selections are outstanding!! I could shop here forever and never go anywhere else, except I don't live in Ottawa. The fish tin selection is impressive.

Dashed in here for a quick bite while at a conference at U of Ottawa - great choice! Had the soup of the day (chorizo & black beans) plus a little glass of wine. Fantastic flavors and really really kind, friendly staff. There might be a wait but folks don't seem to sit forever - and it's worth it!

I lived in Ottawa for 5 years and bought a sandwich here at least once a week. They are very affordable, at around 5 $ each and they are always loaded with fresh Italian meats and cheese with delicious toppings. Get the spicy eggplant!! Why go to subway when you can upgrade your experience for less at this place! I... More
