Hey friends! Time for some more Ottawa restaurant recommendations ~~ The other night, Ian and I stopped at an absolute Ottawa classic – Elgin Street Diner.

This is the best known diner in Ottawa, having been around since over 22 years ago. It’s open 24 hours a day, and serves breakfast all day!

Now – this place isn’t the most vegan friendly, but it is an Ottawa must-do. They do have a lovely veggie burger,which I’ve enjoyed on many occasions.



I need more pictures of this very aesthetically pleasing place – it’s like an old timey diner! They also have great coffee, and their fries are amazing.

It’s basically the perfect spot for comfort food at any time of day or night.



So – what’s your town’s best diner?


  • My bf and I are big diner fans! We are carnivores, so I guess we have a bigger selection of the greasy meals lol…we’re always on the lookout for a good diner, there is one near us, we live up in the mountains north of Mtl. It’s called Marco’s and it’s the only one in the area that comes close to good diner food. Montreal is packed with them and that’s one thing we miss about that city, actually that’s the only thing we miss! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Looks like a good place. The ambience is really nice, too. I have no idea about the places here since we haven’t explored much but this year we’ll get out and about more and find out!
