The last entry of my Ottawa In A Day series like having a multi course meal for dinner. The final stretch of the series is obviously ending with a scoop (or two) of dessert (how classic). After doing my usual research aka reading tons of reviews, I chose to go to Piccolo Grande (means small big in Italian, according to Google translate).
This small cafe is at the edge of ByWard Market and we almost missed it. There is a lot of flavours to choose from, some gelato and some sorbet. They also have drinks, cakes and candy bars (the kind you’d find at a corner store).
We were all full from dinner at Coaster’s Seafood Grill, so we decided to share two flavours; lemon sorbet and walnut gelato. The sorbet was really sour (just like eating a lemon) but unfortunately the walnut was stale (according to my parents).
Piccolo Grande’s official website doesn’t seem to work. However, there’s a Facebook page, but it’s not really active.
