Thanks, Adrienne. We appreciate the review for something we love to do.

In search for weekend brunch this place came up we thought of trying it out. Parking in streets is not existent. Had really look at side streets a bit far to get one. All the nearby spots are reserved for the apartment dwellers in the building.Ordered a Huevo Ranchero ($16) - which came with scrambled eggs two corn tortillas with salsa, cheese, sour cream and a side order of fries. The eggs could have used some seasoning even with salsa it needed something extraA Vegan Breakfast Bowl ($14) - a mixture of tofu, spinach, mushrooms and tomato chutney - which somehow tasted to all 4 of us like onion chutney. The vegetables done good, but tofu again had just no flavour. Tofu had a spice rub all over, but it tasted like plain tofu. The Bacun strips were rice paper rolls with some attempted flavours but none came through.And two Vegan Bennies ($16) - a super grainy slice of bread topped with the same tofu, green onions, Bacun and some red pepper strips (NOT Coulis as described in the menu). If some person was having a tofu dish for the first time I think they would describe tofu as no flavour at all. We vegans know that you can do amazing things with Tofu.The home fries in the above dishes was the best - now that we could give 5 out 5. All of us had to go and get Sriracha and Ketchup from the counter to rescue the dishes. Coffee was too weak as well.When you go in and order on the counter and you get food delivered to your table. Should the restaurant still offer to tip on the machine BEFORE even we were served? The order did take a long time, the table not clean when we sat, no condiments on the table and coffee refills slow.An extra star for giving tons of vegan options More...

I used to go to Good Eats regularly when they were in a smaller space on Albert, close to my work.  I'd wander over once every week or so. This location has as much character as the old one, but of course in a different way.  The first thing I noticed walking in was the colourful floor tile.  It made me happy. They still have a simple menu with good choices: soups, sandwiches, bowls and baked goods. Service was pleasant and speedy. It was a beautiful spring day so we took advantage of the large patio to enjoy some sunshine.Food was as good as I remember. I had the salmon bowl while hubs had a chicken squishwhich, basically a grilled sandwich.Happy to have re-found Good Eats. More...

If you like meat maybe not your spot.  Wings tasted stale and the sauce we picked provided zero defence.  Cheese puffs were good.  Nachos were also good though there was little description of the contents other than general statements like "veggies" so there were some unexpected surprises upon unboxing.

What an amazing hidden gem of a restaurant!! The owner is incredibly friendly as well as the staff and the food is just spectacular, they also have a great selection of gluten free items and are very knowledgeable about celiacs and are careful about cross contamination. I am looking forward to trying their brunch soon! Overall a sweet little breakfast place I'm glad I stumbled on. More...

Deliciousness and awesome customer service. We ordered beet salad, avocado toast, veggie poutine and butter chicken plate. The salad and butter chicken were very flavorful and extremely healthy! We also ordered coffees and pastries, all were well made and extremely fresh. Their millennial bar is to die for. Totally satisfied with my cravings and worth the visit! More...

Delicious and satisfying, I looooved Good Eats. As a clueless Torontonian in Ottawa for 2 days, I loved their food so much that I went back both mornings for their Breakfast Bowl ($12. 95). Darn, was it ever good!! Not only were the portion sizes generous, but it also came with mushrooms, tomato, spinach, and house chutney. The hash browns were well seasoned and the sausages/bacon perfectly done. Best of all, the food wasn't greasy at all like lots of other lumberjack style breakfasts. It was an absolute treat for the taste buds and left me full for hours. They also had gluten free wraps, bread, and sweets and a vegan breakfast bowl for those with dietary restrictions.The outside of this place looks slightly unassuming (I think it's in the bottom of a condo or office building?) and I ordered takeout both times, but there was ample seating inside. I think this is an "order at the counter" kinda place if you dine in. And the service was super friendly. The Yelpers aren't lying about this place, I'd highly recommend it. More...

The best breakfast in whole Ottawa! We tried to find a place where we can get a healthy breakfast with good bread. We come frome Austria (Vienna) and wholemeal bread is a normal standard but in Canada not easy to find. You have to try the smashed avocado bread with extra salmon and a sunnyside egg. The chia bowl and the yoghurt bowl with fresh fruits are the perfect final.The dutch baby (very special pancake) is only available for the sunday brunch but we had the chance to try it, with the famous maple syrup. We have to thank the whole team of „good eats“ - every wish for our breakfast came true!We felt like in heaven!!!!You make Ottawa very special for us!!!We will never forget you and I think we will have never ending dreams of this delicious breakfast.So please go to „Good Eats“ when you have a stay or a stopover in Ottawa!!!
