What are the popular spots in Westboro?
Westboro has many hidden secrets that the locals will be ecstatic to point you towards. These include many vegan-friendly and alternative food options, including Natural Food Pantry, Thyme & Again, the ultra-popular Pure Kitchen Westboro, and Strawberry Blonde Bakery. For other dining and snacking choices, consider Sapporo Sushi, the nearby iconic Ottawa Bagelshop and Deli to the east, and Cloudforest Coffee.
Otherwise, stop in at the Bridgehead at the intersection of Golden Avenue and Richmond Road to unwind with a tea and a good book, or cross the street to the beloved local iteration of the Ottawa Farmers’ Market. There are plenty of spots along Richmond Road in particular for everything from ice cream and sporting goods to swimwear, cocktails, donuts (at Maverick’s, a local favourite), and so much more! Not only that, but you can take to the Trans-Canada Trail and venture out to neighbouring communities with ease.
Of course, there’s even more to explore just beyond Wesboro’s borders. Why not hop onboard an OC Transpo bus for easy access to downtown Ottawa’s many landmarks and attractions, or head over to nearby Carlingwood Mall to access some excellent veterinarians, shops, and amenities? The choice is yours, and you have plenty that can be made when calling Westboro home!
