best hintonburg restaurants + cafés

I heart Hintonburg

Hintonburg continues to be the Ottawa neighborhood to keep your eye on and it’s maybe a little difficult to explain why. For me it’s the authenticity of the neighborhood and the locally owned and run restaurants – not to mention the neighborhood’s inclusiveness of all kinds of people from a variety of economic backgrounds. It’s vibrant, it’s creative, it’s a little sketchy in places (in a good way) and it’s real! There’s so many reasons to love Hintonburg!
