Richmond Nursery | 11 Nurseries and Garden Centres in Ottawa. A great all-around garden centre, Richmond Nursery offers a wide-reaching selection of plants at reasonable prices. It’s also a first rate spot for toddlers—their shady walkways and bunny hut are always a hit, plus their water garden pond and giant wind chimes are sure to delight.
Fletcher Wildlife Garden | Located just across the street from the Museum of Agriculture and Food, the Fletcher Wildlife Garden aims to cultivate a series of different environments housing a variety of animals and plants. We love their cultivated rock garden and pond, the field of carefully selected wildflowers that provide food for all manner of butterflies and a large amphibian pond where you’ll find frogs, turtles, ducks and blackbirds.
Carisse Studio Café & Photography Gallery: Try a smorgas—an open-faced egg salad sandwich with baby shrimp on top—or maybe an avocado stuffed with grain-fed chicken. We highly recommend their egg tarts, authentic tiramisu, watermelon smoothies, and of course, their made-to-order Italian coffees. The walls of the cafe are filled with fun, fascinating and lovely photos—check out a silly behind-the-scenes Trudeau, wild-haired Mick Jagger or a stately Dali Lama.
