I ordered French toast stack (without bacon) on Sunday brunch (about $19, including tax). The sunny side up egg on top had egg white (all of it) that wasn't even close to cooked -- it was entirely translucent. Though I tried, I couldn't eat it and returned it. I was told by a manager that: 1. other people loved the... More

This is our "go to" place on shopping trips to Ottawa. We have been here many times and are never disappointed with what we order. A warm and cozy bakery is the best place to spend a cold wintery day. The food is so flavourful and the casual atmosphere makes it enjoyable. It's a popular spot but you never get... More

Read the New York Times Article on things to do with 36 hours in Ottawa and going to Art Is In Bakery was on that list. Went on a Saturday morning about 10:00 AM and it was packed. Every table was full and there was a line up at the counter. Ordered the breakfast sandwich with the Crazy Grain Bread,... More

My family and I visited Art is In for the first time today. We were slightly confused with the location because it's set back in an odd industrial plaza. Upon reaching the counter we were greeted by a very pleasant woman who suggested a few different breads. Everything we had was tasty but we were slightly unimpressed with how dirty... More

If you are visiting Ottawa put this place on your 'to do' list. I recommend going earlier than later. Once I walked there from the Sandy Hill area so that I could enjoy a breakfast treat and then an early lunch. You can catch the bus nearby too. You won't be disappointed if you like unique food experiences. There is... More

For what this is (barkers, cafeteria, cafe) they do a great job. The store front is deceiving as it is an old loading dock. Inside is a warehouse converted to a loft looking space and it works quite well. The experience is customer driven and you MUST actively participate by reading the notice boards. There are three lines; pre-orders, regular... More

This business is a bit hard to find for customers not particularly familiar with the industrial area on the western fringe of downtown Ottawa. However, it is worth the effort. The products are invariably excellent and baked early the morning and during the day to meet demand.

Over the past few years I have eaten at this trendy spot and was happy, however in the past few months my experiences have been challenging. My last visit was today with my family. Speciality coffees were cold and had to be redone. They forgot one meal and chase after it, proving Imhad indeed paid for the meal. The pancakes... More

I think I've eaten lunch here three times and about to go back and buy one of their frozen tortieres to take home. Set in a factory styled building in an ugly out of the way part of town known as the City Centre you'll find the 'Art Is In Boulangerie'. Essentially this is a bakery with a cafeteria at... More

This bakery is really awesome. It has so much character. Fresh bread and fantastic pastries. I loved their breakfast menu and the freshly squeezed orange juice. I also ordered a latte and it was great. Beleive me, I know a good coffee! So if you want to hang out with friends for breakfast and spend anything from $5 to $40... More
