The Roast with the Most

Head to Bridgehead Roastery, which recently opened in Ottawa’s Little Italy neighbourhood, to see the inner workings of this fair trade café.

Over the last decade, Bridgehead has gone from a little-known cafe to a major presence in the city. The fairly traded, organic coffees it serves are delicious, and the food is equally enticing (and healthy, to boot): breakfast offers staples such as steel-cut oatmeal, while sandwiches, soups and salads are available for lunch. The baked goods are hard to turn down; the carrot cake especially is to-die-for. A massive new roastery was recently opened in Little Italy, and it’s worth a visit just to see the inner workings — and try a mug or two at the roastery’s brew bar, of course.

130 Anderson St., 613-233-1221, plus 14 other locations; www.bridgeheadroastery.ca.
