I have not had much time to seek out independent coffee in Ottawa, so I'm glad my schedule allowed me to find Origin, located in the historic and splendid ByWard Market neighborhood.

This homey cafe is quite charming, with several different rooms where one can sit, including a smaller one in the back, perfect if you want to find some privacy, or make a phone call as I needed to. While there, I enjoyed a solid, if not spectacular, roast from a newer roaster called Little Victories (love that name), and I look forward to returning to Origin when I can.

Friendly barista, outlets, wifi, and even a tasty breakfast sandwich makes Origin a winner in my book.
