Bars & Cafes


Located on the excellent people-watching corner of Byward and Clarence, in the Byward Market, this Tex-Mex restaurant's large windows offer a great view. The Mexican and South-Western United States menu features large portions of standards like nachos, fajitas and particularly tasty quesadillas, as well as pastas, ribs, Santa Fe pizzas and home-made desserts. It also has a small bar at the entrance. Popular with a young, casually dressed crowd, Blue Cactus marks itself as "Ottawa's most popular restaurant,"
