A very Ottawa way to enjoy the last bits of summer

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa

The other day Mark and I – plus the pooch – went for a walk from Westboro Beach towards Remic Rapids. I had heard there was a little pop-up bistro here and wanted to see if it was still open. And guess what, it was.

It’s definitely worth a visit. It turned out to be a very pretty place to sit and enjoy a pint. There’s a short menu with hot dogs and gelato and the like but we were there primarily to enjoy a beverage and a view. And as an added bonus, dogs are allowed!

It was a very nice outing but for one thing… There are portapotties on site but I’m not sure if this was a weekend issue or not but at the time of our visit they were, er, seriously subpar.

We were there during the day but I’m betting it’s equally nice at night. It’s open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every night but the grill closes a little earlier. The page on the NCC website doesn’t mention what day it will close for the season but I think the fellow behind the grill said they’d be running until October.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
