Nothing beats a good sandwich. The key is great bread and The French Baker has the best bread in town for their sandwiches ($5).

Between this impeccable bread were layers of arugula, tomato, cheese and ham. The bread is baked daily in an old French oven using quality ingredients, and its delicious taste comes in part by allowing the dough to ferment and develop flavour in the traditional ways.

The sandwich options change daily depending on what their sister kitchen, Benny's Bistro, is cooking up.

Another favourite at this bakery is their lime coconut lime cake ($1.95).

It's moist and the flavour so subtle that you have to let it linger in your mouth to enjoy the full benefit of all the components.

Their Illy coffee is strong and made fresh. And on your way out, you can pick up some tarts or croissants to go. They have the best croissants in Ottawa.
