We visited here in July 2017 after a light lunch. Had some chocolate banana and some lemon coconut cake. It's a little pricey here but the home made desserts are very delicious. Get a seat by the window to watch Westboro pulsing by. 😁

This great Cafe in the heart of the Market has the most beautiful selection of desserts, cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other items! Great gluten free cakes, and cookies! The cakes are true works of art! The selection of freshly ground and brewed coffee was wonderful!...More

Definitely the best place to go for dessert in Ottawa. They have a food menu as well, but while I have eaten there dozens of time, I have only ever gone for dessert.

I have stopped by here a couple times, to pick up a slice or two of cheesecake. The service is nice, and they have a good selection, however the quality of the cake just isnt worth it at $8 a slice.

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!
