Simply Biscotti, Preston Street, Ottawa (IMG00383)

I introduced K to Simply Biscotti, a neat Cafe/Restaurant on Preston Street, which I had discovered during the 2011 Italian-week Festival.

Altho the ambient settings are not exactly like that in Europe, the food is good and the service has a touch of Italian hospitality.

We now go there quite often, mostly for Sunday Brunch. They serve excellent cappuccino, pastries and of course biscotti to go with the coffee.

Come to think of it, I do miss the cafe and restaurants in Rome - not those in the tourist-trap part of the city, but the little ones in the residential neighbourhood near Ada Park, where I was staying.

I started this blog lotusandcedar after my first visit to Rome (see inauguration entries in 2006) and have many fond memories of the Eternal City.

Simply Biscotti simply brings them all back.

I wonder the small cafe next to the Spanish Steps is still there?

Hmm, great recommendation for Sunday brunch! good idea, as we are running out of places to have Sunday brunch. We'll check it out someday (probably when our basement is finished-finished :o)

There are quite a few cafes in Piazza di Spagna. So I am not sure which one.

I presume it's only abt 9-10 Km from where you live.

From the Hunt Club bridge, take Prince of Wales Drive north to Dow's Lake, turn left, cross Carling onto Preston Street, go north, and Simply Biscotti is on your left, before the Queensway overpass.
