What's tastier than a yummy homemade pasta?! Seriously, pasta is one of the most delicious meals you can eat. Yes, pizza is awesome, but pasta is pretty much equal in greatness. The tasty creation from Italy will be filling up our belly's at this adorable cafe in Ottawa. The new cafe is located in Little Italy and it is a must try!
Pasta comes in so many different shapes and sizes. From a classic spaghetti to a cheesy mac n' cheese, there really is nothing better than pasta. Not only does this all new spot serve up fresh homemade pasta, the cafe is also extremely cute. From the outside the cafe is bright pink and as you walk in you will see a leaf wallpaper, pink walls, as well as a cute backyard patio.
The Dreamland Cafe has officially opened up in Little Italy and we are so grateful. The cafe is owned and run by two sisters from Ottawa. The dynamic duo opened their first shop on Laurier Avenue last year and this year they have expanded to Little Italy! Coco and Marlo De Leo both believe in serving Ottawans the freshest and tastiest foods in the city. Each pasta dish is made to order, meaning each time you indulge it will be fresh.
The cafes interior is absolutely gorgeous. There is a cute leaf wallpaper, pink accent walls, and a huge painted mural outside the shop. The mural is of someone eating pasta, of course! The new cafe is bigger and allows for much more seating. It is a full-service venue and offers up a wider variety of menu options. The Dreamland Cafe on Preston also has a hidden patio perfect for the summer time!
