Went for a cappuccino after dinner and wanted to buy a bag of espresso beans to bring home. Unfortunately they were out and said there will be more in the morning.

I generally visit the bridgehead in the evenings for tea and dessert. The desserts are really very good and it has a quaint atmosphere that makes it a nice place to end your day.

My wife, son and I had coffee here. The atmosphere is fun. Coffee is good. But there really wasn't anything different about it.

It's nice to see them open at 8:00 on a Sunday morning! The Almandine really was excellent. The London Fog Latté too! Probably the best London Fog latté I've ever had! The barrista and the cash guy were both nice. :-)

Another good Ottawa coffeehouse with a casual vibe. Quite a few options for the coffee and non-coffee drinker alike as well as healthy food selection.
