We've been going to art is in for years and what's attractive about the place is the kind and generous man behind it all , KEVIN ! . We always enjoy the food however lately , adding his wife who sometimes forgets that this is only a bakery and not the trump tower and a very hostile few young girls... More

Oh the food is good for sure, but each time I go I keep leaving with the same feeling that the place does everything else so poorly that I wonder why people go. It’s like a study in consumer behaviour gone horribly wrong: they set up this restaurant to show that even with good food, if you provide poor service,... More

This place has some big highs but also some possible lows that, depending on your perspective, may or may not be a big deal. Personally, I had pancakes with raspberries inside and on top and vanilla bean whipped cream and I was in love. Highs - really really delicious brunch options that are creative but will still be well within... More

We frequently come here to stock up on their breads, pastries and eat in. We live in Orleans so not too bad of a drive but not really close either. Aide we stick up we find their bread freezes amazing. We do find when you are ordering it can get a bit disorganized at the counter. The line to wait... More

This trendy little bakery in the business area of Ottawa is a great find. Their many varieties of bread will have something to suit all tastes. Their breakfast sandwiches are fresh & tasty. There is a daily special for lunches which can include a soup or salad if required. Their kronuts are a real treat. As we had breakfast, many... More

The Sunday bunch line moves fairly quickly, but be prepared to wait. The baked goods, breads and food menu is top notch. On plate presentation alone this place gets an A+, and the food is equally delicious. Pictured is the vanilla bean pancakes.

Below is a detailed narrative of my poor experiences at Art Is In. I apologize in advance for the length of my review, but I want to be thorough in hopes of discouraging anyone from eating at this place. I'd like to note that I was a long-time and dedicated customer of this restaurant, and have introduced numerous family members and friends to this establishment...

Went for lunch but the items were so limited I couldn't eat. Sanwhiches are premade which was not great for allergies/preferences. Soup choices were lack luster. I would consider coming back for just pastries.

Location is not easy to find as it is in very secluded spot. Yet the place is always crowded, therefore be prepared to wait in a line. The place offers breakfast and brunch menu for weekends.During weekdays there is lunch menu as well. This is not a "fancy" place and Industrial setting makes it somehow special. Food is creative and... More

Every time I go in I tell myself to try something new but I always go with the Ham and Cheese Croissant - to die for! The other cool thing about this place is that it's right beside The Orange Art Gallery which I find to be one of Ottawa's most laid-back and cool art galleries!
