374 Elgin St, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, K2P 1N1

Serves meat, vegan options available. 24 hour diner where one could go with omnivores. Has a vegetarian club sandwich that can be made vegan. The veggie burger patty is vegan and so is the gravy (not labeled) which you could get with fries. Sometimes a veggie soup.

Absolutely disgusting. - Edit

Ordered two very simple things - chicken burger and hot hamburger platter. Used Skip the Dishes to deliver (none of this is on them).

My wife's comment on the chicken sandwich is that "you could kill someone with this". Yep, chicken burger ninja throwing star - take someone's head right off with it. Cold, rock hard with a dribble of hot sauce.

The hamburger platter - even worse. Dried out, cold and just outright gross. Gravy is so dark it literally looks like congealed dark chocolate. It tastes even worse than it looks.

We're staying in a hotel 5 blocks from the diner. It took the driver 5 minutes to get it to us cold. This is 100% on the kitchen as they clearly had it ready way too early and it sat under the heat lamps that likely weren't even on since it was stone cold.

We live in Ottawa. This is our first and last experience with this place. What a waste of $43 (luckily we had a $7 coupon that I found online).

Great - Edit

I had the grilled vegetable club - without cheese or mayo - and the vegetable soup. The server was really accommodating and knew which options were vegan.

Pros: Accommodating to vegans, Clear ingredients on menu, open 24/7

Cons: dingy, hole-in-the-wall, very casual
