Stopped in for lunch last Friday hoping for a good experience as the place was busy. We ordered 2 soups and a scone. As my partner was eating, he noticed a hair in his mouth. It turned out to be a hair caked in dirt on the spoon. The waitress gave us a new spoon, but did not offer any... More

Unlike the rather "pedestrian review" written by Deborah M our party of six enjoyed ourselves for lunch. I started with the homemade curry lentil soup and my main was a very innovative "waffle which" which was ham and cheese based with aloi dipping sauce. Service was prompt, no hovering but when something was anticipated the server was there.All of us... More

We were passing through Merrickville and stopped to eat something gluten free here. The chocolate cake, raved about by the attendent was average junk with ransid tasting whip cream on top and the huge coconut macaroons were way too sweet that even my children couldn't eat them. The cost was very expensive almost comparable to rediculas prices in high tourist... More

There are about 6 tables inside and if the weather permits, eat outside in the shade where there are plenty of tables. Small menu which makes the choices easier, specially is their sandwiches, which can be a little high for a sandwich but delicious. Cranberry mayo, mmmmmm! You can choose a full sandwich with either a soup or salad, half... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many years and one of their best quality is consistency. This is small place with a patio. Nothing fancy in the decor but clean and very nice staff. The highlight, as it should be, is the food. Sandwich, soups, salad. They aim at offering healthy food and they succeed. I recommend the... More

This little gem of a restaurant is found in Merrickville, Ontario (southwest of Ottawa). Small and cozy - reservations recommended unless you don't mind waiting. Locally owned with yummy, yummy food. Gluten free and vegan choices available. Sadly it is only opened during the day. Food served will not disappoint. You'll want to return. After enjoying your meal, a little... More

My toddler, my wife, and I had a great meal here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The sandwiches & soup were great and the service was excellent. The kids menu is pretty cool - my kid got a fruit, cheese, and goldfish cracker plate that he readily devoured. The icing on the cake was the cream cheese icing on the... More

The good lady suggested a last minute visit to Merrickville for lunch. Examined a few of the menus offered at pubs and cafes and liked the look of the choices at the Yellow Canoe Cafe. A very wise choice as both our meals were excellent. H had the root vegetable soup with a turkey, cranberry and alfalfa sandwich. I had... More
