Good happy hour food. Staff and atmo cater to men. Tv flipped on to sports. Was expecting something more upscale tailored to after work professionals but this is an overpriced sports bar. Wont return.

Had lunch last week with a couple of political operatives in a very quiet table where we could talk turkey. Service very discreet, food quite good (had a steak sandwich), no worries when we stayed and talked long after the plates had been cleared. If you are planning a secret government takeover, this would be a good place to do... More

When here on a chilly morning for brunch. First time trying french toast using a croissant. It was delicious! Also had a Kir Royale. It was a lovely brunch and great ambience. Price was good, service very good. Guitarist played very chill music in the background. I would visit again when we return to Ottawa.

This place is consistently good with their food and service. Always go there when I am in Ottawa and it never disappoints. They know how to poach a perfect egg.

We all meet for time and the place was quiet for breakfast @10:00 am the day after boxing day. We all had something different. It took afair amount of time for the food to arrive but we all enjoyed the food. The prices were not too bad for being in the market area.

Went here for a late breakfast as it was close to Chateau Laurier where I was staying. I was the only patron at 9 am so service was excellent. Perfectly done poached eggs and very tasty country sausages. Good coffee. I was very pleased.

If you are looking for a Paris-style bistro in Ottawa, this is the place, including the decor but especially the key items on the menu, e.g. Onion soup and croque-monsieur.
