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.

Must Try:

  • 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.

  • 5/5


  • 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.

  • 5/5


  • Small, narrow and very busy.

  • Smaller tables and bar rail for singles or couples vs bigger tables to work on.

  • Cosy and rustic.

  • 3/5


  • 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.
