Isabella's is another little (very little) gem in downtown Oshawa. The coffee is excellent as are the home baked scones and muffins. Isabella's has a fairly limited but delicious and healthy lunch menu and offers their own gourmet chocolate.

Honestly didn't know what to expect from Isabella's waffles, but they were delicious! Perfectly cooked with lovely fresh fruit, and beautifully presented. Their drinks are also very good, high quality for a decent price, not to mention the lovely chocolates!
