  1. The Peace Garden – 47 Clarence St.

    Now here is a real find.

    Many years ago now, I was with some friends in the Byward Market of Ottawa one hot summer day. We had decided to take a break from shopping to have lunch. We noticed a really little sign outside of The Times Square Building that told us of the Peace Garden Restaurant just inside. We weren’t sure about lunching in an office building eatery, but we were hungry and it was too hot to walk any further. We investigated, found a truly delightful, peaceful spot, and have been regular customers ever since.

    This restaurant has an Indian influence and is mostly vegan and all vegetarian, but the offerings are so diverse and plentiful that you won’t miss the meat. Really, you won’t. (I’m salivating as I’m writing just thinking about the food!)

    You order most things at the counter, and help yourself to other things that are farther along the counter. You can eat there, or take your food to go. It’s all very laid back.

    If you’ve never been, try the dahl soup and one of their special platters for lunch. Everything on the menu is good. Come hungry, because you’ll need to leave room for one of their incredible desserts to have with your tea.

    Do ask the staff to recommend dishes, or to tell you about the food. On one trip to the Garden, I was with a group of four, and we were talking to one of the ladies behind the counter about an item on the menu that none of us had ever tried before. As it happened, none of us ordered the item. Just as we started eating our lunch, the woman with whom we had been talking brought a serving of the “new” dish out for us to share so we could all have a taste to see what it was like. Awesome.

    The food, the staff, the prices are great. Worth a try.

    1. Clarence Street is in the Byward Market section of Ottawa.
