The bread at The Crusty Bakers is superb, in my view the best in the Ottawa region. Quality organic flour is used and the bread is made without compromise by Jamie co-owner and French trained baker. The crust is perfect, the centre light and airy,...More

We had been looking forward to coming here after reading some reviews and hoping for some traditional British fare. Despite some fancy names for the sandwiches, the list was somewhat limited and nothing there sparked our interest enough for us to stay.

Quaint little Bakery in the Old town of Kemptville. Worth visiting, They sell amazing pies and desserts. Always something interesting here. The Maple Bacon Butter Tarts are out of this world. They have a great pecan pie and at Christmas they offered gluten free fruit...More

Excellent bakery in an unassuming building downtown Kemptville. Housing one of the oldest wood ovens in Canada, turning out family favorites; buns, loaves and specialty items daily. A must.

With a daily lunch menu of homemade soups and beautiful sandwiches, and weekly specials that range from chili to "Croutine" (crouton poutine), there's certain to be something for everyone. Also available is a variety of delicious local and imported cheeses and sausages, that are out for sampling with an expert on hand every Saturday
