Pizza Place

“**Best bacon & eggs in the city for cheapest price** **Amazing world famous pizza** yes it has shipped globally many times This is a family run old school dinner. Don't let appearances fool you. We go hear almost weekly for our Saturday or Sunday breakfast and they treat us like family and have our order on the table not long after we walk in as they have it memorized. Be sure to sit in the section closer to the door and not at the back wall. **No Alchohol** -Note : if you want cheese in your eggs, ask for mozzarella for real cheese. If you ask for cheddar it will be the processed cheese slices.”

From an excellent $30 lunch to a 7 course meal, each course with its own wine for $200+, there's great dining for every budget. Search Signatures restaurant Ottawa on line.”
