When I first started coming here most people had not heard of it. Sadly it is now crazy busy almost always. Love the eggs benedict, breads, Cronut holes and cronuts, cookies, sandwiches are all great. But seriously get up early and come here before it...More

I stumbled on this place while going to the area for another, non-food reason. I've been looking for a good bakery in Ottawa (and there are a handful) but this one has bread that is to DIE for. I love the white bread (spongy/holes) but...More

This is definitely a hidden-gem in an industrial area of Ottawa. The interior has a cool open-concept. The staff and servers and quite friendly. However, it is quite pricey. $8.20 for a cookie and matcha latte is quite expensive.

Art Is In is located on an industrial warehouse space. There is seating if you wish to consume a sandwich, pastry and coffee. Their selection is vast. Likely twenty types of bread and as many pastries. My personal favourites are the potato dill French style...More

This place is overpriced for the quality of food. I would know as I'm originally from Montreal and the food is way better there! I suggest you google another, smaller bakery within Ottawa. Good luck!
