Caesars and mimosas. The brunch drink that everyone loves and will look for on any breakfast menu. However, everywhere seems to sell caesars where as mimosas are more of a rare find here in Ottawa. That's sad, because there is nothing better than orange juice and champagne mixed together.
Whether you're one to order a mimosa at 8 am or 2 pm with your first meal of the day (we've all been that hungover), it's an essential to make your brunch classy AF. So if you're not much of a caesar person or you're just a brunch snob like all of us want to be, these are the best places in ottawa to get a yummy mimosa.
1. Flapjack's Canadian Diner // 354a Preston St.
Not only does Flapjack's Canadian Diner have the most indulgent breakfast in Ottawa, but they also have $2.95 mimosas every single day. No, I'm not kidding.
2. Benny's Bistro // 119 Murray St.
Benny's Bistro is definitely an upscale brunch spot in Ottawa, and they make no exceptions for their amazing mimosas. At $8 a glass they are a little more pricey, however it's a must to go with your delicious unique brunch.

4. Gezellig // 337 Richmond Rd.
Brunch at Gezellig is served on Sundays from 10 am to 2 pm, and since it's only one day a week, you must treat yourself to one of their mimosas. You can get two small plates per person for $20, and the plates aren't even that small so it's an amazing deal. With a mimosa on the side, you'll have the best Sunday ever.
5. The Standard Luxury Tavern // 360 Elgin St.

At Backdrop Food & Drink, their mimosa goes along so well with their bruncher burger. You may not think that a burger and a mimosa would go well together, but think again. The burger has a sunny side up egg on it as well as hash browns on the side, so it's technically a breakfast food, right?
