Summer 2015: Ottawa

Today’s post on Ottawa will be a short one because it was a one day trip. Mama Rae and I took the bus from Montreal in the morning of the second day, and we made it back in time for dinner. It was a super hot day but we managed to stroll through downtown Ottawa and hit every destination on our list!

Parliament Hill


Rideau Canal

Lunch at Bier Markt

We were in Ottawa on a Saturday, which means.. brunch time! Haha just kidding, we already ate breakfast. Anyways, we passed by Bier Markt on our way to Parliament Hill, and it seemed to be quite a popular spot so we decided to sit down to share a meal.
Bier Markt is a German bar, which I didn’t really realize until I saw the menu. Otherwise, I would’ve chosen a different place because all I think about when I think of German food is like, sausages.. and we all know how I love my veggies! 😛 Like most other patrons, we enjoyed our meal on this beautiful day out in the patio.

Brioche French Toast (2.5/5)

two sunny side up eggs, roasted pepper & onion sausage, warm maple syrup, preserved fruit compote

I was a little disappointed when this came.. the 4 slices of French toasts seemed limp and puny, and texture wise, it was rather soggy.. I think I can make better French toast to be honest. They also forgot the fruit compote, so I had to ask them for it. On the bright side, the sunny side ups were done well, and the sausage was juicy and flavourful. I just don’t think the meal was worth the price though.


Service was kind of slow, but I guess understandable with the crowd.

{1- Terrible :: 2- Poor :: 3- Average :: 4- Good :: 5- Excellent}

Food: 2.5/5 | Service: 3/5 | Value: 2/5 | Ambiance: 4/5

Overall: 2.5/5
