What I tried:
Nutella hot chocolate, Mocha Latte and a Almond Tea Latte.
A variety of drinks and snacks available.
Beautifully handcrafted lattes
Great location and quaint little shop.
It is a very small space so be prepared to wait for a seat.
Noise level a little high should you want to use this space to work.
The mocha latte was great. They are also known for their scones, matcha and spicy chai lattes as well.
Very friendly and explained what was unique to their establishment thoroughly.
We only had about 30 minutes to spare at MOC, so we only ordered drinks. My favorite was the mocha. Not too strong and sweet and perfect to drink.
The Nutella hot chocolate was decadent and not extremely sweet.
The tea latte provided by Sloan Tea is always a treat. Floral and fruity notes.
Small, narrow and very busy.
Smaller tables and bar rail for singles or couples vs bigger tables to work on.
Cosy and rustic.
Next time I am in Ottawa I will definitely visit Ministry of Coffee again and this time spend more time there brunching. Give it a try and you will not be disappointed.
