At a first glance, $8 for a piece of cake seemed pretty expensive, but most places charge that much. The thing that sets Oh So Good apart from everywhere else is the size of the piece of cake. I went here twice the past month...More

We decided to forgo dessert at our restaurant and visit "Oh so Good ...". We were very happy that we did. They have 8 to 10 selections of gelato and must have had 15 to 20 cakes. There was every selection you could desire including...More

I often attend the location in Westboro for coffee with friends. I dont usually deviate from either a coffee or latte which are always good. The service is consistently good, restaurant is clean, and it is one of the few (only?) non-major-chain that is open...More

We had cake for lunch two of the three days we were in Ottawa because there are just too many to chose from! Excellent cake and cheesecake, wonderful atmosphere, especially when you can sit on the patio while enjoying your desserts.

Decided to give the Westboro location a try. The coffee was good and a variety of choices available. Tried: Banana Cream, Lemon Tart and Blueberry cheesecake. Out of the three, cheesecake was the best choice. The other choices lacked sugar and the cake icing tasted...More

I have mixed feelings on the establishment. What I've tried from it is tasty, but some of their prices are just way too high for what you get. Tiny slices of cake for 7 dollars is unreasonable, especially because the quality, though good, just isn't...More

We had Ferraro Roche cake and strawberry cheesecake, a Canadian cappuccino and a milkshake. Cakes were huge! And super good. Their espresso is top notch. The location is a bit of a dive so don’t expect much, but staff are friendly and it’s got a...More

Oh So Good Desserts and Coffee House was established in 1994. The original idea behind the café was to replicate a German Berlin-style coffee house. Today it has evolved into a place which offers a vast array of decadent desserts to arouse any appetite. Our drinks are uniquely crafted and our coffee is always blended to perfection. We specialize in cakes and offer over 35 different types at any given time in our downtown location (25 York St.). We have recently opened a new location in Westboro (261 Richmond Rd. W.) We serve many of the same desserts found Downtown in addition to a food menu. Our food menu is still evolving to better satisfy customer demand. We also offer alcoholic beverages in Westboro to compliment our menu. In addition to excellent coffee and dessert, we display the work of local artists. The art is regularly rotated and the pieces are for sale by the artists. Be sure to stop by either location for a sweet taste you will never forget!
