We had a table by the window looking out onto George St. The staff were very friendly and helpful in selecting a... More

We are always so impressed with our meals at this place. If you're in Ottawa in the market area and looking for great food and drinks this is a must! The atmosphere is quaint, relaxed, and friendly.

From the outside it just looks like another beer cafe. Sure with a wide range of beers. But the food is amazing : a wide and well done variety of dishes. Not cheap not expensive but an experience.

If your looking for really good food, in very small portions, with a hipster vibe this is the place for you. I had peas and pork belly and it was amazing. However it was such a small portion I was still hungry afterword. Also the wait for the food was ridiculous.
