The 3Cents Café, originally named “3cents2” is a Yemeni and Canadian themed coffee shop. It started it’s first location in Bank Street. The café started off it’s first years making “pan bread”, which is a type of Yemeni bread brought to Canada. After the impact of Covid-19, the 3Cents Café changed the menu with a big update, adding sandwiches and crepes, and also implementing an “Oud Party” where music is life. Right now, 3Cents Café is a welcoming place to get tea, subs, and so much more!
I found this little gem of a place about two months ago and I always come back! I tried several of their menu items and they never fail to deliver. The food is super tasty, they offer great portions, customer service is extremely friendly and the ambience is welcoming and unique! 100% would recommend – choose local!
“This is one of the most authentic Middle eastern places I have visited: The atmosphere is incredible; it is an authentic Middle Eastern vibe. The decoration and the songs interact with each other and bring back memories from back home. The drinks and food are amazing. It can satisfy all tastes with generous serving portions. Highly recommended place to visit if you are in Ottawa”
This was my first time eating out during the pandemic and I felt 100% comfortable. The staff were cleaning everything very often, wearing masks and gloves. They have sink for washing hands and handsanitizer. They also sell little travel size sanitizers.
Food and service is great. They have a bookshelf with a good collection of books. The place is cozy and cute. Great place to hangout with friends or alone. Oh, there’s free WiFi too!!
