We went for lunch on Friday March 10 for a lunch totally uncoordinated - my wife ate her salty carrot soup and egg sandwich alone as I waited 40 minutes for my Italian grill cheeze - come on Thyme & Again you can do better than this! We went elsewhere for desert and coffee 😯

My daughter and I had a car incident on a -15 morning and we got stuck on parkdale street. All was going wrong until we got hold of the breakfast sandwich here. Made with a delicious and savoury scone, filled with avocado, eggs and cheese...so yummie! That it had enlighten my day again.

This is my favourite spot for morning coffee. The food is great and the coffee always good. the service is quick and pleasant the only real drawback is the seating. They still insist on using uncomfortable metal chairs and unstable tables. Apart from that they are very good. .

Service at the food counter is a bit surly at times, but checkout staff is always nice. Portions are reasonable, food is always fresh and visually appealing, but sometimes feels a bit pricey for what it is.

Phenomenal desserts... not cheap, but well worth the price. The lemon cheesecake is particularly good, but they do everything well.

A perfect spot for an afternoon sugar fix. Great range of cakes, loved the pumpkin cheesecake. Good coffee and friendly service.

I went here for lunch with 3 friends. The place was buzzing at noon, but seats soon opened. There is a brilliant selection of sandwiches. The rich homemade soup was delightful. There are good selections for dietary choices. I will definitely go again.

This place never disappoints. We had two lovely wraps with coleslaw and a pickle with some specialty coffees outside on their patio. Good job Thyme & Again. You're definitely a favourite stop when I'm in your neighbourhood.

I really enjoy their vegan options, however I do wish they would offer up bigger portions. In addition you have to be fast as they sell out quickly. Sometimes staff are very friendly, other times not so much. Their frozen food section is amazing, with lots of offerings!

This is one of my favourite spots to eat lunch when I'm in Ottawa. Delicious fresh sandwiches, soups, snacks & desserts. I try to go here for lunch every time I'm in town, and I'm never disappointed.
