The restaurant is spacious, but the waitstaff was limited when we visited. It was hard getting their attention, but when we did, they were pleasant and accommodating. The food wasn't anything special or impressive.

Had two slices of pie: one triple berry and one blueberry. Both tasted days old. Service extremely inattentive. Have been before but they seem to have lowered their standards. Love to support local businesses but will not return to this one.

We stop in to Memories whenever we're in Ottawa (we've been there dozens of times). It has always been an oasis of warmth, with friendly staff, the best coffee in town, excellent tea, generous and delicious desserts (try the carrot cake!) and inexpensive healthy dishes....More
