My friends and I would have coffee regularly at Francesco's. Coffee was great. Seating was very comfortable. Unfortunately they were part of the building that burnt down this spring (2015). The location was at Bank and Fifth Ave. We await the outcome of the rebuild.

There are a lot of coffee shops in the Glebe, but Francesco's makes the best coffee. It's roasted in Ottawa too so it's nice and fresh.

The coffee here is roasted on-site - you can buy beans to take away, or drink in-shop. I come here often and have never been disappointed. A good selection of different roasts and blends. I would prefer that all the choices were Fairtrade, but it's...More

Expensive for sure, but lovely smooth tasting expresso coffee beans. You can get your one pounds packages in two half pound bags.

We purchase our coffee beans from there all the time. Very good selection of freshly locally roasted beans. Our house guests always complement us on the coffee we serve. Thank you Francesco!!

Title says it all. Delicious and great selection. Prefer to buy my own beans and grind at home and there is no comparison. La Tierra Co-op in gatineau makes some great coffee, but this is better.

Amazing coffee. Certainly among the best in Ottawa. Eat first, though, as there aren't many goodies and those on offer aren't always inspiring. Not the most child/stroller friendly place: there are several steps up to go in, and no high chair. I am happy to...More
