Best Cafes to Cozy Up this Fall in Ottawa

We love fall for the cardigans and increase in soup selection! With patio season coming to an end, we’re on the lookout for new digs. Here’s what we came up with: 

With two locations and the most Ottawa name possible, The Ministry of Coffee and Social Affairs is the place to be for a last-minute deadline or a study date.

You’ve gotta try this: Mocha, featuring fresh in-house dark chocolate syrup.

Bonus: After a long day of coworking, peep their beer and liquor menu for unique finds like the Pineapple Jalapeno Margarita or the Cherry Float.

This chic little café is located around the corner from Byward Market. It is host to weekly writer meetups and the perfect cozy nook to crack open a novel.

You’ve gotta try this: Standard Latte made from house-roasted beans. The latte art is stunning!

With two locations and delicious niche brews from Africa, Asia and Central America, you are in for a treat. Looking for the most Instagrammable café around? Check out their Wellington location with an industrial flair and open concept repurposed garage that spills out into a patio.

You’ve gotta try this: London Fog made from their niche brew coffee and delicious Earl Grey tea.

That’s right – Black Squirrel doubles as a used bookstore and a café! Avid readers and coffee aficionados alike will enjoy this homey atmosphere with a productive vibe during the day and a space for live music and kooky trivia at night.

You’ve gotta try this: Kusmi loose leaf tea.

Dreamland Café hosts the café basics with an Italian flair – which is the best of both worlds truly. Order up a homemade pizza or pasta with your macchiato or iced latte. We love an aesthetically pleasing café experience! If you are a lover of pink and floral, this is the place for you.

You’ve gotta try this: House made Italian sodas in flavours such as Blueberry Mint and Cranberry Orange.
