WELCOME TO THE DAILY GRIND!
ALL DAY BREAKFAST!
We serve an extensive menu of locally sourced and organic food for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
including Texican & Southern dishes, Burgers, Sandwiches, Soups, Salads
all made in-house, including our proprietary bread baked daily onsite.
Our delicious Coffee, Espresso and Loose-leaf Teas are Organic and sourced fair-trade from farmers in Mexico, Guatemala and Peru through Equator Coffee in Almonte, ON.
Vegan & Vegetarian options are always part of our menu of soups, sandwiches, Texican food and fresh-baked treats.
Our hot chocolate - available regular or Mexican - is also dairy-free, 100% natural and milled by Purest in Perth, Ontario.
Soy is absent in most of our creations, and we offer a special selection of sugar-free and paleo delicacies.
If you happen to be gluten-free or Celiac - you have found a home here - you can eat everything on the menu, and all the specials!
Finally - if you're a regular ol' dude with no special ingredient restrictions or preferences, then you'll find that while we seem to characterize ourselves by our sensitivity to food sensitivities, our greatest attention is on the QUALITY and TASTE of everything we put on the table.
Either way we're convinced you will experience the difference it makes when the food you eat is made with a deliberate care and conscience for the natural qualities of the ingredients used to make it.
We host parties, DJs and bands on the week-ends and other select nights, as well as art shows, acoustic shows, jazz on Wednesday nights and other events. Click here to access the events celendar and see what's coming up.
Any night (or day) of the week you can come with a group, order food and drinks and play a record, Atari, Chess or other board games in your own room upstairs. The rooms can also be reserved for private meetings or parties.
SYNTHESIS, spinning synth-based music spanning back to the 80s (EBM, Synthpop, industrial, post-punk, death rock, new wave, etc.) is hosted by DJ Reverie every 2nd Friday of the month, and ONDAFLOR with DJ D-Mass, every 2nd Saturday of the month.
The Daily Grind is located in Chinatown, Centretown, Ottawa - between Bronson and Bay St.
There's plenty of metered parking on Somerset St. as well as on the side streets, and the OC Transpo Bus stops directly in front of the Cafe.
