Downtown Ottawa treasures?

phedre | Feb 11, 2008 11:22 AM

I'll be travelling back and forth to Ottawa for the next few weeks, and I need food options!

Here's what I'm looking for:

- reasonably priced ($10 - $25)
- anywhere within walking distance of the Rideau center and Byward Market. I've walked down to Elgin, and gone as far as the Scone Witch. I'm willing to go a bit out of my way for something great!
- take-out potential. I loved grabbing a few scones from the Scone Witch for breakfast, and I'll be working in Gatineau out near the Costco, so bringing lunch with me would be a plus. There's only so much food court fare I can stomach.

I'd love to try Dirienzo's Grocery sandwiches, but they seem a tad out of the way.

I'll definitely hit up the Scone Witch again, and The Manx is on my hitlist. Stoneface Dolly's seems to have potential once I work out where exactly it is, and rumour has it that one of the coffee shops here has imported a Synesso, so I'll be sniffing that one out for sure! I think it was the bridgehead?

Any pointers would be appreciated!
