Our Sweet Summer

Ah August, you are our last chance to enjoy Canada’s great outdoor offerings, such as hiking, camping and fishing! So, before leaves start to fall..let’s celebrate our Civic Holiday!

Have you started planning fun activities to do nearby? Not yet?  Well, Ottawa can be the perfect backdrop for your last long weekend this summer! The city’s historic landmarks – from the iconic Parliament Buildings to the Rideau Canal – are surrounded by natural beauty!

Want to round out those experiences with activities that will excite your kids during the day? Did you know that on August 4th you can celebrate Colonel By Day, the holiday named for Ottawa’s founding father, with live music, dancing, heritage demonstrators, costumed characters and face painting for kids! And for food that will comfort and surprise you (depending on the mood!), don’t forget to visit our brand new location at the renovated Rideau Centre located in the heart of downtown Ottawa…one block east of Parliament Hill! We can’t wait to know what you think!


For those who will stay in the city, don’t miss our delicious monthly featured crepe – Brownie Bash, a yummy marshmallow crepe for a camping-like atmosphere, right in your favorite shopping mall! Consider it a mental break. And make sure to enjoy every mouthful!
