The Guild Room, 10 Blackburn
The café at All Saints Ottawa has progressed by leaps and bounds in the last

couple of months, and is now the sunny setting for an espresso machine and a daily

 menu of soup, salad and smoothies (all made in the neighbourhood), as well as

assorted fruit and baked goods. The cappuccino, charmingly presented in vintage

cups, is a bargain at $3.50, and there’s decaf if you need it. The Guild Room is

open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, so anyone who’s working or going to activities

in the building can count on a pick-me-up when they need it.
