Good Eats, Ottawa

The reviews on TripAdvisor made this little place hard to ignore, with 4.5 stars I decided to make my way across town in the freezing January weather. I am so glad to inform you all that it was most definitely worth it – however next time I would consider the bus option (close to Kent bus stop), as its Business district location makes it less accessible to regular tourists.

Does this place remind anyone else of the house from the movie ‘Up’?

If you like fresh food this is the place to go, our sandwiches were made with the freshest homemade breads and wraps, with unique filling choices. The sandwiches were all made to order which to me is always a good sign. We both loved our choices however, I felt the bread I got with my sandwich was a bit overpowering, the amount of it took away from the gorgeous filling. Next time I will definitely opt for the wrap option.

Left: Blackened chicken, Sriracha mayo, grilled red onion, roasted red peppers and greens. 8.5 CAD  

Right: Slow-cooked pork, Balsamic BBQ sauce, pickled celery, fresh cucumber, and greens. 8.5 CAD

The soup of the day was potato and leek, it was very different to what we are used to in Ireland. It was very thick, but did a good job in heating us up. In total, the sandwich and the little pot of soup cost us 12CAD.

Small. Cozy. Simple.

As you can see the decor is extremely simple and casual which coincides with it’s ‘eat everything out of a takeaway container’ approach. However, at busy times the tables can be a bit grubby from other people’s mess.
