Planet Coffee, ByWard Market, Ottawa
Outdoor stalls are seasonal. Building is open year-round.
This is the best independent coffee shop in Ottawa, the company is women-led, they care about coffee and their food. The best summer patio in the market, warm and shielded in the Clarendon Courtyard.
Located in a pedestrian-only cobblestone street with sometimes art hanging on the building walls, Planet Coffee is sure to offer you all you need in terms of breakfast coffee, croissants, and indoors and outdoors tables to work or read a book. Sometimes Jazz bands play late afternoons in the street…
“Best little pub in the downtown Ottawa Byward Market. Not easy to find but once you have experienced the amazing french Canadian burgers and fries, you will want to come back again...tomorrow! Amazing menu, friendly staff, great value for the plentiful portions you will get. Please note...this is a small pub for locals, so you must go early especially on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings.”
“Great breakfasts (restaurant at the back - enter through bakery). Front is a French bakery and pastry shop.”
“Bakery, Pastries, Sandwiches, Salads, Quiches, etc. Get your food at the counter then sit either on their patio or an indoor table and watch the world go by (wall of windows around the place)”
“Astounding selection of teas (a whole wall of them to choose from!), and very tasty scones (served with jam and whipped cream)! Lovely little patio for people watching too.”
