The blackened chicken fettuccine alfredo is a highly-rated dish and after trying it out ourselves, we immediately understood why on the first bite.

Contact details: +161-3843-0000

Operating hours:

  • Monday – closed
  • Tuesday to Saturday – 8 AM to 7 Pm 
  • Sunday – 9 AM to 5 PM 

The Baker lies in an unassuming spot, often left undiscovered, even by Barrhaven locals. We’re also guilty of this, but thanks to the hands-on research we did for this article, we discovered a new gem in this lovely neighborhood. 

It’s fun being a tourist in your own city every now and then! 

Anyway, the ultimate standout dish for us is the super zataar, which also happens to be The Baker’s number one recommended flavor. This tasty menu option is served as a pie filled with zataar (a blend of spices), halloumi cheese, tomatoes, and olives. 

It’s perfect for those who have an affinity for earthy, salty, and tangy notes. 

They also have a few vegan flavors such as zataar, spinach, and veggies, ensuring our plant-loving friends aren’t left out. 

5. Fat Les’s Chip Stand & Wham Burger

  • Sunday – 11 AM to 7 PM 

Fat Les’s Chip Stand & Wham Burger is an eye-catching food truck in Barrhaven, though it doesn’t have to appeal visually to passersby. 

If you’re near its location, you’ll have no trouble getting a whiff of its mouthwatering offerings, tempting you to the hunger-inducing aroma of poutines, hotdogs, and burgers. 

This lovely scentsational spot boasts a multitude of menu items, indulging its patrons in a world of savory flavors. 

That said, it seems that the poutine ultimately stands out as the crowd favorite, which comes in different flavors. From the classic one to exciting flavors like mac & cheese, butter chicken, and popcorn chicken, you won’t get enough of it. 

In fact, just a single bite of it, and we were immediately converted into diehard fans of their own take on the Canadian classic – and that’s putting it lightly.

Operating hours:

  • Monday to Sunday – 4 PM to 9 PM 

Juluca’s is a stylish Italian restaurant known for crafting delectable European plates with their own exciting twists. 

The ultimate in-demand dish at Juluca’s is no other than the pizzas, which customers are presented with a comprehensive variety. They have classic flavors like margherita, cheese, and Hawaiian. 

That said, they also have exciting, unique bites such as the Diablo pizza that spicy aficionados will go crazy for. This fiery creation features hot sopressata, artichokes, hot banana peppers, and green olives. 

It certainly has a spicy kick to put it lightly, but it also has a slightly bitter taste and tangy notes, making the complex flavor profile the highlight of this tantalizing dish. 

Aside from pizzas, they also have pasta, desserts, liquor, and a lot more, ensuring your adventure doesn’t stop at the doughy goodness. 

8. The WORKS Craft Burgers & Beer

What stands out as the most popular one out of the bunch is the war pig which features sauteed mushrooms, BBQ sauce, cheddar, and maple bacon. 

We’re also a big fan of the juicy Lucy, which we’re quite sure cheese lovers will go crazy for. It comes with a juicy 8oz. burger with cheese stuffing, along with classic inclusions of lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onions, and mayo. 

Oh, and here’s a little insider tidbit: their milkshakes are a must-try, probably even more popular compared to their burgers! Try the birthday sprinkle shake – you won’t regret it! 

9. Greenfield’s Public House


Address: 900 Greenbank Rd, Nepean, ON K2J 1S8, Canada

Contact details: +1 613-823-9900

Operating hours:

  • Monday to Sunday – 11 AM to 2 AM 

Greenfield’s Public House is a buzzing gastro pub with an intimately dim-lit interior. 

While they don’t offer a rich variety of menu options, almost everything we’ve tried knocked us off our feet. After all, quality over quantity, right? 

The nachos are probably the crowd favorite, elevating the classic bar fare by a ton. We also recommend trying other, more filling meals like the indulgent chicken Philly with a sweet and smoky flavor profile. 

On certain nights, patrons of Greenfield’s are also given an extra treat in the form of live music. Make sure to check out their website to be updated on their schedule. 

10. San Marino Pizza 


Address: 2201 Jockvale Rd, Nepean, ON K2J 3N1, Canada

Operating hours:

  • Monday to Thursday – 11 AM to 10 PM 
  • Friday and Saturday – 11 AM to 11 PM 
  • Sunday – 4 PM to 10 PM 

San Marino Pizza is an old Barrhaven favorite that has been in the neighborhood since the late ‘80s. 

This unassuming joint serves a lot of heavenly bites, with the Mediterranean pizza being our top favorite. It’s an exciting dish that features black olive, feta cheese, sweet red peppers, and tomatoes. 

Other worthy contenders include the San Marino special and beef burger. 

Aside from pizzas, they also have ridiculously good subs. If you want to go for the classic option, try your whack at the meatball sub. If you enjoy layers upon layers of flavors, take a bite of the club sub, which comes with bacon and turkey.

Operating hours:

  • Monday to Sunday – 7 AM to 2 PM 

Playfully named Tutti Frutti, this indulgent breakfast and lunch spot is a Barrhaven gem, offering wholesome flavors that will have you excited to wake up. 

From french toast to crepes and waffles to poutines, they have a wide array of menu options to cater to the diverse palates of their patrons. 

The pancake is a popular choice. After all, they don’t call this a breakfast staple for nothing! 

You can choose from a variety of flavors like bananas and Nutella, strawberry and pastry cream, and fresh fruit and English cream. 

For a savory option, we highly recommend the breakfast poutine, a hearty dish that features potatoes, cheese curds, bacon, sausage, hollandaise sauce, and egg.
