  • Ian R.Simply the best breakfast in Ottawa!! The hangover breakfast is so full of everything, didn’t need lunch that day!

  • Tobias NegeleAfter hearing a lot about this diner I went there with some pretty high expectations. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich with their famous poutine and was really disappointed by the tasteless meal.

  • Emily ADecent breakfast but don't be fooled the home fries are mashed up to be like a mash potato mound

  • TV Food MapsCheck out Elgin Street Diner as seen on You Gotta Eat Here

    55555 by TV Food Maps


  • Sam ShiAn affordable late night place in the downtown area. Poutine is alright but not exceptional. The fries and gravy not hot enough to melt the cheese curds. Milkshake is quite good. No beers sold here

    55555 by Sam Shi


  • Annie MartineauAuthentique, très bon club sandwich, parfait pour un lunch avec des enfants : crayons à colorier et menu pour enfants. Un brin cher par contre: 65$ pour une famille de 4

    55555 by Annie Martineau


  • Ghaida YallaNo Quebec poutine but I can't count the number of times I've had their 4 cheese poutine late at night. Often good for 2 people!

    55555 by Ghaida Yalla


  • Reena B-SBeen coming here 20+ years. Perfect for breakfast or anytime, really.

    55555 by Reena B-S


  • Tobin ElavathilOne word...poutine. I want to go back and try the rest of the menu.

    55555 by Tobin Elavathil


  • Justin ManuelI'm going to echo what most the people on Foursquare are saying about this place -- get the poutine, you won't be disappointed.

    55555 by Justin Manuel


  • Bennett C.You can jack up your poutine by requesting 1/2 fries & 1/2 onion rings! Try with the ESD poutine topped w/ bacon!

    55555 by Bennett C.


  • Brian QuaifeMilk shakes are huge and fantastic!

    55555 by Brian Quaife

  • Tiffany WilliamsI'm from Quebec - have tried just about every poutine from Montreal to out in the countryside and Elgin Street Diner gives them all some stiff competition. One of the best poutines I've ever had!!

  • SeanOur new favorite. Can't beat these fries

    55555 by Sean


  • Maureen K.Big portions and good service. Air circulation is wonky though, it's either quite warm or chilly.

    55555 by Maureen K.


  • Martin N.Useful tip- it says you can upgrade your fries that come with a burger or sandwich for $3.49 but don't just pick the plain poutine. You can also upgrade it to ESD poutine (recommended!)

    55555 by Martin N.


  • JPOfficially not worth a visit. This is a 2 out of 10 on the pouting quality meter.
