We truly enjoyed our breakfast. The oatmeal was delicious and innovative. I also had an egg sandwich with cheese, jalapeños and kale. Excellent! The coffee was just how we like it, strong and fresh. The service was friendly and prompt. At night, they switch over...to a scotch bar with a different food menu. This restaurant also gives back to the community. When we arrived, there were bags of food on a shelf outside. When we asked about them, they said that they prepare meals for the local needy using up the day’s leftovers. LOVE THIS!More

We were there today for lunch. I ordered a breakfast sandwich. What arrived at the table was the smallest English Muffin I have ever seen. It was missing the mushrooms and it resembled a tiny grilled cheese. I was expecting a sandwich. Drank my coffee...and gave it back when I left.More

I was really excited about this as I love the idea and the dishes look so yummy! I had the hangover bowl - one of their most popular - and it was not great. I actually felt sick afterwards. The worst part was the oatmeal...did not seem at all fresh, and it wasn’t hot. Not sure if it was a lack of effort on the people making it or if that was typical, but I was rather disappointed, as we drove 20 minutes to get here. Also, you do NOT need to order the meal sized, as it’s really enough oatmeal for 2 or 3 people, rather than one meal.More

My wife and I already took in the Scotch Lounge and came back for the Daytime venue of Oat couture. It’s awesome. We tried a sweet and a savoury (the Kyoto was incredible) along with a Lox toast. Very yummy! The latte’s rounded out the...experience! Highly recommend!More

I've long been a fan of oatmeal, but one thing that I always found was that I wanted to make oatmeal more interesting. I've always wanted to add things. Well, this place makes oatmeal so much better than I ever could. It can be sweet....It can be savoury, and it can still be simple if that's what you want. I like to take the bowls they have and change them and make them my own. I've got a lot of allergies, and they have lots of choices for me to make replacements that work for me. It's also clear the ingredients are really fresh, and I love that they make most of what they do from scratch. This is the only way to really know what's in it. I love this place. Eat there as much I do anywhere else. The staff are attentive, and the time from order to being served is always fast. Far faster than any other breakfast place typically so it's great if you're on the go.More

My wife and I first went to Oat Couture a few months ago, and we've been back a few times now. I've still not ordered the same thing twice yet, and everything has tasted amazing. I'm not even a big oatmeal fan to begin with,...so the idea that this was so delicious was really eye-opening for me. I guess the oatmeal is just a vehicle for all the amazing gourmet ingredients they put in these bowls. My wife is gluten and dairy free, so it was also super refreshing to find a place she could eat. And those mediums are super filling. I've yet to try the lunch-themed ones, I've been stuck on the healthy ones. Staff seemed way cooler than me, which is probably a good thing. And the place itself is spotless and really well decorated. Probably one of the better looking restaurants in that part of town. Can't recommend it enough.More

Visited early on a Saturday morning, had no issues finding seating but it quickly filled up. I had an oatmeal bowl with cherries and chocolate and it was delicious. Who knew oatmeal could taste so good?! Although wish I got the small. The medium was...huge and I could not finish it.More

After months of going by, I finally got the chance to stop in and order something off of their impressively creative menu and now I can’t wait to go back! I got the Lunchbox bowl and I’d eat it everyday if I could! The atmosphere...was nice and relaxed. It’s very much a hole in the wall so it’s too bad there’s not more room for seating.More

Can a restaurant build a business around oatmeal? Time will tell for Oat Couture (awesome name, by the way), but their oatmeal is terrific. As Allison K describes, it is indeed delicious and at the same time, so darn healthy. I didn't spend a lot...of time looking at the menu or the various combinations. For me to feel full, I would need a couple of pieces of whole wheat toast to round out the meal, so I'd like to see that option.More

Oat Couture yolk a long time to open as the building had structural issues but it was worth the wait. Fabulous drinks and treats, friendly staff and a million choice of oatmeal including overnight oats and many many toppings and mixes. Who says oatmeal is...only for breakfast?More

I finally visited this new eatery in Old Ottawa South. I must say that I was a bit skeptical about the concept of an oats-only café. However, they won me over with the efficient and friendly service, layers of scrumptious goodness, and locally roasted coffee...(Little Victories). I ordered a small “Lunchbox”, a pleasing mélange of steel cut Canadian oats, raspberry purée, banana, almond butter, dates and shredded coconut. With no refined sugar, this delightful concoction satisfied my sweet tooth in a healthy way. My iced americano was also a “win”. I highly recommend you give Oat Couture a visit!More

Building has been transformed into a beautiful space for rich lattes and oatmeal products. Service is very friendly and efficient. Only thing to watch out for is the raised threshold of the door which is well marked.

When I found out about this place, I didn't realize you could make a business out of this. This special place on Bank St. is a regular cafe on the outside, with a unique twist on the inside. Situated in the heart of Old Ottawa...South, this place predominantly serves oatmeal, as well as the standard coffee espresso drinks and tea's. Their oatmeal is absolutely fantastic, comes in a variety of special add-ins, and is produced locally in the Ottawa Region. They have 3 main categories, Sweet Oatmeal, Savoury Oatmeal, and Regular Oatmeal. I would recommend the Valentine dish as it is a good start to any day! They are open relatively late from 6am till 8pm every day, and they even have free wifi! Get there early on weekends as there is limited seating as it is a new place that just opened up! Definetly a must see for busy tourists, and a special brunch place for Ottawans alike!More
