If you don't have a sweet tooth, then you probably don't get what it's like to find a new bakery/cafe that sells delicious baked goods. It's like finding heaven on earth, and you know you'll become a loyal customer. While we have amazing spots in Ottawa that sell baked goods, we can never have too many.
There have been a ton of donut places popping up in Ottawa recently, and we're not complaining. Whether it's a donut shop in a bookstore, just adorable unicorn donuts, or even donut burgers, we should be thankful. While all of these are great, there is nothing quite like homemade donuts. And that's exactly what's unique about this new cafe in Manotick.
Mimi's In Manotick is a barn-style cafe that is located in the heart of Manotick. They're fairly new, as they've only been open for business since last June. However, they definitely know what they're doing and they can't do anything wrong. They have a ton of donut options, cronuts, coffee and even ice cream. They call themselves a dairy barn and cafe, and once you walk in, you'll totally get that vibe.
They're most known for their donuts, and once you bit into one, you'll know why. They have a menu specifically for donuts, so you know they have a ton of options. A few of those options are:
- Birthday party
- V's salted caramel
- Maple bacon
- Nutty Nutella
And of course, they have classic flavours such as cinnamon sugar, chocolate dipped, honey glazed, and vanilla dipped. Their donuts range in prices, but their signature donuts are $3.50 each and their classic donuts are $3 each. You can also get a half dozen or a dozen.
If you're not a fan of donuts, no worries. They have a whole ice cream menu and they serve swirled ice cream along with hard scoops. They have classic flavours, but they also have a ton of toppings that will transform the ice cream completely. And if you're feeling adventurous, they have options like ice cream tacos, ice cream floats, and ice cream donuts!
I feel like you can never go wrong with a good, homemade donut. Especially since these flavours are so unique, you know you're getting the real deal. While this is a cafe, they only have patio seating available so you can sit out there in the warmer months, but maybe take them to go during the colder months! However, they do also sell a ton of coffee and tea options, so if you do go in the colder months, you can grab a drink to warm up!
Mimi's In Manotick is located at 1088 Bridge Street, and the hours vary. For more information on the menu, location, and hours, visit their website here.
