Great communication, selection and professionalism for our event! The good eats team was easy to work with; the food was delicious and exactly what we were looking for; they were in and out with ease, brought all their own supplies and kept a clean and efficient work space while staying on schedule. 100% would have them cater again! Thanks so much! More...

Thanks so much Mike. You were a joy to work with!!

Excellent spot for delicious brunch offerings. They have amazing food and drinks, and I really liked the relaxed setup. I would be happy with anything off of their menu. They also have many gluten free options, which is nice for those who have dietary restrictions. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Ottawa! More...

Really cute spot for vegan breakfast! I had their BLT and my fiancé had their build your own breakfast. My only issue was with the vegan bacon - it was tough to eat and pretty flavorless. Everything else was very good!

I highly recommend Good Eats. The food is wonderful. I just had the weekly special today - beef curry. So good! The breads and wraps are baked fresh onsite, and the desserts are incredible. Check it out for breakfast or lunch - you won't be disappointed. More...

We are vegetarians and were visiting Ottawa my husband’s home town this weekend. The food was wholesome and outstandingly flavorful and delicious. The cafe au lait was perfect as well! Karen and her team have really nailed the healthy and gourmet combo. They bake their own vegan breads which was fresh and delicious. They have also introduced a Sunday brunch which looks phenomenal I wish them all the success. Really GOOD EATS! More...

I loved all the vegan and gluten-free options the good eats offers a good change from the Ottawa norm. Recently moved from salt spring Island and was really disappointed with the vegan gluten-free options in other cafe's in Ottawa. Good eats has become my new favourite cafe! More...

This review applied to the Good Eats at its previous location. I can't comment on the new premises. Really good creative food options that taste great. Also reasonably priced meals and desserts. I've been there three times now, and I've never been disappointed. Just be careful because the lunch rush is intense. Gets crazy around noon. The place is pretty small, so it might be better to take your meal to go. The sandwiches can be a little messy because they're so stuffed, but I'm not going to complain about that.Super healthy menu with lots of gluten free and vegetarian options if you happen to have diet restrictions.

5 stars  out of 5 for:- indeed, good hearty eats - I had the beef stroganoff in a wrap (should have opted from the wrap, it was too much for me)- free lemon water- friendly staff- open / exposed-concept kitchen- nice eclectic mix of dining-in furniture- a free cookie (chose a chocolate chip!) for my 1st Yelp check-in @ #GoodEats (thank you!)

I got the wild rice salad with tofu and it was so so good. And huge! I took some home with me. One of the best salads I've ever had. Since I don't live in Ottawa I will definitely be trying to make it at home. My boyfriend got the pulled pork wrap and he enjoyed it as well. Ambience is cute, fast, casual. Seems like a place a lot of locals that work nearby go to for lunch. Definitely worth a visit! More...

Love the weekly selections and they make them gluten free! I have never had any issues here as they are extremely careful when making gluten free stuff. Great staff too!EDIT: This morning I was craving a breakfast BLT so I booked it over there and made it JUST in time to see that my wallet was missing. Thankfully they accept Google pay!! And the Gluten Free breakfast BLT was AMAZING! More...

Food is good, and I believe absolutely everything is made in house. (Right down to the ketchup o. The breakfast sandwich) The drip coffee is wonderful, plenty of flavor and very little bitter. My favorite thing on the menu has to be the hazelnut banana bars. These things are better than crack! More...

Came here today because the conference I was attending at the Delta didn't have any vegan options for lunch. I'm so glad I found this little eatery. The shop was packed with the lunchtime rush but the staff worked like a well-oiled machine to get everyone served with minimal wait time. 2 large tables and a small window bar offer comfortable seating for roughly 20 people at a time. I had a medium roasted butternut squash salad and it was so delicious but very filling. I'm thankful I only got a medium as a large would have been way too much. Bonus: They are very serious about recycling - all plastic is placed on a trolley to clean and recycle. Gotta love that initiative. More...

The bad: Slow service. You’ll wait a long time to get food and to pay because the order/pay/receive system isn’t really efficient. There’s always lots of confusion and they’ve been open for years, so I don’t know why they haven’t figured that out yet.But the good: food-wise, it’s excellent. The vegan granola bars are my favourite. I like that you can get any of the sandwiches as a salad instead. More...

Went for lunch at 11:30 and the lineup was starting to form. Staff is well organised so it doesn't take very long for your order.Their menu changes weekly so checkout their website. Also, it will be changing owners on Jan 8, 2018.Ordered two sandwiches (pork & beef) that are described below. The size was very generous. I really liked the beef, and the pork was OK. I found the cucumbers and sauce overpowered the pork.PORKHoisin pork: slow-cooked pork, Hoisin sauce, cucumber, green onion & carrot slaw, crispy noodles, and greens. $8.5BEEFCrispy ginger beef, spicy sauce, Asian slaw and greens. $8.5Tried their lemon, caramel, and chocolate donuts. The dough is nice and soft, but I didn't like the lemon or caramel filling very much. The chocolate was good. Last item was the chocolate banana nut bar. This is a MUST. Very tasty!One last thing I wasn't crazy about:Wanted to order coffee after eating the sandwiches to enjoy with the desserts, but was asked to stand in line again. I wish there was a separate line/area where you can order coffee/beverages so you're not stuck behind the big lineup of people ordering their lunches. More...

I had the pork sausage sandwhich, the Lemon homemade soda and the blueberry cheese cake. All of which were amazing. Now here's the exceptional part of my review and what REALLY drove home what an amazing place this is. The food is phenomenal and inventive but the service is something altogether. I missed the last step out the door and off went my beloved cheesecake to decorate the pavement. Since I was standing literally at the door I went back in side to order another and hopefully the staff wouldn't mind throwing out the ruined mess I made. Not only did they dispose of the mess but replaced it for free after hearing what happened. No one does that anymore. It goes above and beyond customer service. I'm going to miss this place like crazy. More...

Delicious fresh food. Enjoyed my beef cheese steak sandwich and freshly baked chocolate chip cookie for lunch. Small place with seating for about 20-25 people. Busy just after 12pm with the workforce crowd lined up out the door, but quiet just before and after (mostly ordering to-go). Menu changes weekly. Vegan options available. More...

Such a tasty choice for breakfast! I had the breakfast sandwich with scrambled egg, bacon and cheese on a homemade english muffin. When I asked if they had any orange juice, the guy behind the counter asked, "are you staying here to eat?" When I said I was, we went and grabbed bowl full of orange and began juicing them right there. It was a wonderfully fresh meal. More...

I hope to see something different. I'm glad I was able to get freshly made soup of the week! More...

I feel like eating here makes me a better person. There's nothing phony about this place. There is an authentic committment to quality  over trends. It's so....wholesome? Nice? Clean, as in natural and simple? Maybe all those things. Don't be fooled by a so-so building. (Though they're  moving soon). There's nothing fancy here and that's what makes it so great. Just good wholesome food at a reasonable price. More...

This is a great place to go if you're looking for something quick and healthy. The best part is that the menu changes weekly. Staff are very friendly. My only complaint is consistency. I grab lunch here 2-3 times a week - I'll go in on Monday and the salad will taste fantastic and then I'll grab it again on Tuesday but it will look totally different - too many greens or not enough or too much dressing or too little etc. Then I'll go again on Friday and the salad is again different!!! Sometimes better, sometimes worse. I guess it depends on the person making it? It would be great if the manager could quality check every batch to maintain consistency. Everything else is great! :) More...

Very good unpretentious, cosy (fan tutte) lunch establishment, has tight opening hours from 12-2 so it is advisable to arrive before 1 to be able to still snag a sandwich. This place has the look and taste of home-cooking, their bread in particular is well made and just right for sandwiches. Choices are usually simple - a (rolling?) menu that changes every day with 3 choices for fillings (the meats are all available in vegetarian/vegan options) with 1 a vegetable based filling. Soups, good coffee, nice chai latte and reasonable prices round it all off. More...

Good Eats should change their name to Great Eats. My wife and I arrived in town for Blues Fest after a long drive. We were famished and I was starting to get a little hangry. So we did what we always do, we feverishly checked Yelp and TripAdvisor for restaurant reviews. Thankfully Good Eats was close and although the reviews were generally positive, the actual experience was even better. Upon arriving we were greeted cheerfully by the two women working behind the counter. They answered all of our questions about the menu. We landed on a veggie sandwich on ciabatta and a Mediterranean salad. Both were flavorful and delicious. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the food. In fact, it was all so good we went back the next morning for breakfast. The real kicker is that as soon as we walked in, the woman working greeted me by name as if I were a regular. How crazy is that, she remembered my name and we had a nice chat. I would consider moving to Ottawa just to go to this place. If you live in Ottawa already, you'd be crazy not to check this place out and make it a regular stop! More...

You probably won't get a good feeling just looking at the place from the outside. It's a very old house(and not good-looking) near a parking lot.  However, everything else about it was really good. Their staff is really nice and the food options supposedly change almost weekly. I was surprised also because their coffee machine looked a bit old but still made good coffee. Not sure if you can get anything even close to their quality for that price in the area. The mushroom melt sandwich had tons of mushrooms and was so filling. So, food and service: really good! Interior: not so much. More...

Very Good flat white. Barista skills are important and they rocked it. Try the little almond cake slightly crispy with a chewy moist inside, could eat them for days. Sammy was good, didn't love the homemade bread could have been softer, felt like all pieces were ends of a loaf. Would go again to try more items , baked goods on display looked awesome. Can't believe how cheap it was $19 for two flat whites, two sammys and one almond cake . Ottawa you are a cheap city compared to TO! More...

Always fresh, always delicious, loads of options available on their weekly menu. I love their creative and healthy salads. Did you know there is a half/half option? Why not try two kinds!?They go way too heavy on salad dressing though, ask for less! More...

I'd recommend Good Eats for their mochas and cheddar scones. I also got to try the avocado toast here but the portions were really small and a bit too spicy for my tastes.

I could taste the freshness of the ingredients used in a quality sandwich. Smart yet simple combinations. The menu is not lengthy, which is a good thing in this case when everything is appealing. I had the lamb sandwich and was pleased with the tenderness of the meat.One con is how cold it is to sit inside during the winter, since the space is small and the door takes a long time to shut.

I was about to catch the Via train back to Toronto so I dropped in for a quick breakfast. My daughter and grandson were waiting at the hotel and I asked if possible to get a breakfast sandwich or two. The lady there was very accommodating. Everything was great. The baked goods that I had picked up were delicious when enjoyed on the train. Also the soundtrack at the café was great. More...

My favorite lunch place by far. The menu is always changing and the food is always fresh with offerings of sandwiches on homemade wraps or bread, seasonal soups or hardy salads. They offer vegetarian options on everything, and also have delicious dessert treats. More...

Small dining room with communal harvest tables. Excellent wraps with homemade flat bread, interesting ingredient combinations (fried miso something in my beef wrap made it original). Prices are decent and include taxes for convenience, e.g. $8.5 for a very large sandwich. On Fridays, they make stuffed donuts ($2.50) which are to die for! Try the salty caramel ones (they look like pączki, Polish donuts). Service in both FR and EN. Very friendly! More...

Un petit Resto sans prétention; dans le genre granola. Le menu est simple et tout à l'air si bon! J'ai prit une toast avec avocat écrasé sel poivre et citron, tellement bon et frais! Guy a prit le breakfast muffin dans un muffin anglais dense et croustillant avec un ketchup maison, tout simplement parfait! Les desserts sont tous alléchants; biscuit aux pépites de chocolat, décadent! Aussi la barre granola au chocolat; oh la la Miam! Merci pour cette belle expérience ! More...

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant... Though small and cozy and simply decorated, the vibe was very friendly and homey with easy access to cheap(ish) parking. The staff were very polite and the customers were pleasant as well considering the minimal seating available sometimes put you in the space of others, but no one seemed to mind it. My mother and I got the same thing, a buffalo chicken sandwich (hers on bread, mine in a wrap) with no buffalo sauce, and it was great! My father and sister got the bbq sandwich, his pork and hers tofu, and they both seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. We all also got the coconut chicken corn chowder, and while it was good, it would've been nice to know prior to purchase that it was served cold- that's the only negative thing I have to say about this place. It's awesome that their menu changes weekly; you'll never get bored! More...

This was a great place to eat. It is a small place, but no one cares, we shared a table with other people and everyone was just so friendly. My daughter and I got the same sandwich, the bbq sandwich, she got tofu, and I got the pork and both versions of the sandwich is amazing.The sandwiches are big, bread is amazingly fresh, and the atmosphere was so cool!! Way to go Good Eats!!BTW, parking was on the side and easy to get into, paid parking. More...

I've had several yummy things from Good Eats in the month since I've been working within walking distance. But today's veggie wrap is hands down the best wrap I've ever had! Perfectly marinated and cooked tofu, crispy green apple, carrots, greens, candied nuts in a homemade wrap with perfectly spiced tamarind sauce. So good and so filling! Keep up the good eats! I'll be back sometime this week for another! :) More...

I've been here twice now and the food is really good. Service is friendly. The first time, I went in for lunch around 11:40am. It was quiet which was nice. I grabbed a gluten free lamb wrap. Wow! It was amazing! The gf wrap was homemade with oats and was soft. The lamb beautifully seasoned and it was topped with roasted red pepper, spicy harissa and a white bean hummus. I seriously wanted to go back for another, but after devouring it I found myself quite full.I decided to return the next day for breakfast since I didn't have time to make something that morning. I decided to go with the BLT. Sadly they were out of gluten free bread... So they made me a fresh wrap (I saw them cooking it!). It was really good as well. I wish they had bread or gf english muffins, but not that day. I showed up around 7:45 and it was quiet, but a few minutes later business picked up and they were busy. I find it sometimes takes a little while to get my food (15-20), maybe because I'm one of the first customers in, or they had to make gf wrap from scratch, but the wait is worth it. I like that they menu changes weekly so there's always something new to try. Lots of gluten free and vegetarian options as well!can't wait to go back some time soon! More...

I'm in Ottawa for work, but from Phoenix, Arizona. I have a gluten intolerance, so traveling to a new place and attempting the local cuisine is always a game of Russian roulette. Good Eats took the guess work out of that. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The brunch was amazing, fresh and healthy. The portion sizes for the cost, was also fantastic! Not to mention, the old house where the restaurant is located, is quite quaint and lovely! More...

Little hole in the wall, a bit out of the way (although nicely located if you are staying in one of the nearby hotels).  Food was delicious and fresh - the menu changes weekly, apparently, so what I had might not be there the next time, but a commitment to simple balanced flavours and seasonal and fresh ingredients will always be a winner.

I was welcome by both of the inviting ladies when I came in looking for some GOOD EATS this morning.  Wasn't sure if I wanted breakfast or lunch (although I hadn't had breakfast yet). The time was 11 am (that awkward time between breakfast and lunch when you don't know which menu, breakfast or lunch menu, you can order from.). As it wasn't busy, without me asking, they offered to make something off of either menu.  . I found out that the menu changes weekly at GOOD EATS.  They post their weekly menu at:  good-eats.ca.  A new soup each day of the week, and they always have fresh cookies and coffee/espresso and the like.  GOOD EATS was GREAT EATS as far as I was concerned.  Price was SPECTACULAR, especially for how freshly made each item is, as well as fresh breads, wraps etc. for their sandwiches they make.  Spent only $7 inclusive of tax before tip for a Flat White, and breakfast sandwich.  I WIN!  I hope this place is popular and around to stay for the next time I'm in Ottawa, because it's close to where I stay and it's delightful!

I stopped by today 30 minutes before closing to grab a quick salad to go.  When I walked up to the restaurant I saw that the sign said "closed".  I was disappointed, but thought I'd try to push on the door, just to be sure they were actually closed.  Good thing I did because the door swung open and I was greeted.  I asked if they were closed and the lady there said they were still open but they didn't have much selection left.  I asked if they still had the beet and carrot salad left and they did :)So I had the large beet and carrot salad ($10) with chicken (+$2).  They have a special on right now through the Yelp App, so if you "check in" on the Yelp App at Good Eats you get a free cookie.  I "checked in" and got a free oatmeal cookie (it was the only type they had left). When I got home, I dug right into the salad and it was great.  The salad was grated beets and carrots and chopped up cabbage and parsley, with pumpkin seeds in a sugary lime dressing.  The chicken was grilled chicken breast thinly sliced.  It was very tasty.The cookie was ok.  It was too buttery for my liking.  By the time I got home, the paper bag it was in was translucent from all the fat.  But whatever, it was free :)  The decor is "indie sandwich shop-esque."  The person serving me was very nice and pleasant.      They don't open very late (4pm is the latest that they open), so unfortunately I probably won't be able to eat here that often.  If you're able to get here when they are open, you should give them a try!

This family-run breakfast & lunch spot is not to be missed. All fresh, whole and organic ingredients make you feel virtuous as you enjoy the delicious offerings, which include soups, egg dishes, sandwiches, and quiche. Also, they make a mean fresh-squeezed orange juice. The vibe is very laid back, the aesthetic is funky, and the soundtrack is great.  We liked our lunches so much on our first day in town that we came back two days later for Saturday brunch. Go here.

Q&A

At Good Eats Cafe we make all our own bread. Our sandwich platters are made on our freshly made, whole wheat wraps that are more like naan bread than wraps. They are very fresh, soft and chewy. We fill these wraps not with cold cuts, but with things that you would normally have for dinner, i.e. roast chicken, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce or chicken curry, or vegan sushi, etc.

We are very careful about understanding the food intolerances, preferences and dietary needs of our customers. We cater to gluten free, vegan, dairy free, etc. We make all our own gluten free products in house so we can be sure of what is in them. We have a dedicated gluten free table and utilize separate oil for making our gluten free doughnuts. We have an online recipe system so that our dishes are repeatable and consistent. Since we make things all by hand and in small batches, having the produce be consistent is important to our customers.

I love interacting with the customers...especially the repeat customers that come into the cafe regularly. We call them (and ourselves) GoodEaters. We get so much joy when people tell us how great, fresh and healthy our food is and especially when they then suggest inviting us to cater their office lunch or mother's birthday dinner.

I have an interesting story. I have always wanted a cafe and planned to open one when I retired from my career in engineering. I got a possibly serious illness that I dealt with successfully and while recovering, I felt I dodged a bullet and didn't want to waste any more time doing something that my heart wasn't into anymore. I wanted to open a cafe. I started doing research and building a business plan and I found the perfect cafe to buy. I had significant experience in project management and manufacturing and I bring a lot of the process and efficiency thinking to this business as well.

We are a happy group here. We don't run our kitchen like other kitchens. We are a team...no hierarchy. We all have our responsibilities but we all pitch in where it is needed. That makes for a lot of accountability by everyone and a lot of focus on quality and doing things right. We also all have the same belief that eating out shouldn't mean being unhealthy. It should be an extension of your home...the way your mom cooked. Our byline is 'You'll love how healthy tastes" and we plan our meal to reflect that.

Services

We can cater anything from as little as 8 people to as large as 300 people. We do corporate lunches, receptions, business openings, weddings, etc
