Weekends were practically made for waffles and there’s really nothing better than brunching with your besties, especially after a long night of partying. Luckily, if you live in the capital your brunching options are as bottomless as the mimosa’s you’re likely to order. So if you’re looking for some truly beautiful Ottawa brunch spots, look no further. 

There’s just something so appealing about waking up late and meeting the squad for a plate full of Eggs Benny and crispy home fries. 

And trust us, with vibrant purple, blue, and pink hollandaise sauces, Ottawa’s Eggs Benedict game is unlike any other.

Whether you’re looking for something light and delicious or rich and heavy, the capital's cafe scene has you covered. 

Beyond the tasty food, many of these places have interior decor that is simply to die for as well.

Just imagine being surrounded by flower chandeliers and electric furniture. It’s really an Instagram dreamland out there.

So, if you love brunch as much as we do, then why not take a look at the list below?

All that’s left to do now is rally the squad and get ready to indulge yourselves with a brunchtime treat.
