Café Morala is one of the oldest independent coffee houses in this part of Ottawa. Under the watchful eye of owner Miriam Rangel it has become a firm local favorite thanks to its cozy atmosphere and vivid Latin-inspired decor, food and drinks. In addition to the coffee, which comes from a roaster in Picton, customers can indulge in specialties such as Mayan Hot Chocolate or Dulce de Leche coffee and sample a selection of freshly baked goods, soups and savory lunch foods.
A café with a difference, socially conscious Happy Goat Coffee Company is a ‘niche artisan roaster’ who source their beans directly from small farmers in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The resulting coffee is not only ethical and ecologically friendly but also fresh and distinctive in taste. The café itself, located in a converted warehouse in Ottawa’s Little Italy, has a relaxed bohemian ambiance and owner Henry Assad often hosts parties and social events there. Happy Goat supply their coffee to many local cafes and sell raw beans and specialty coffees on their website.
A micro-roastery and coffeehouse founded in 2002, Francesco’s Coffee Company produces batches of fresh-roasted coffee every 17 minutes and continues to innovate in the field of coffee roasting with regards to both quality and freshness. They have highly knowledgeable, enthusiastic coffeehouse staff and supply both retail and wholesale artisan coffees, including organic artisan coffees such as Mexican French Roast and Peruvian Viennese Roast and various teas.
