Easter weekend is nearly upon us! And while it will be another low-key Easter for many families, it doesn’t mean you need to skip out on the celebration (or do the cooking yourselves!). Ottawa has so many great options for takeway dinners and treats – sit back and enjoy the holiday while supporting some of your favourite local restaurants and small businesses.
Here’s where to get Easter food and chocolate treats in Ottawa this year:
Epicuria’s ham dinner for six is accompanied by scalloped potatoes, orange and mint green beans and roasted carrots on the side plus fresh dinner rolls to devour. Add on a dessert to complete the meal or grab one of their famous quiches for your brunch table before they sell out. You can also find cookies and chocolate treats in store. Curbside pick up and limited local delivery is available.
Thyme and Again
Thyme and Again has put together multiple take out meals for four to pick up (or have them delivered for a flat rate). Choose from ham, roast chicken, prime rib and roasted Branzino. If you prefer to mix and match everyone’s preferences, select the individual dinners and build your own meal for everyone around the table.
Hop to place your Easter dinner order from Dinewell Catering, available for pick up on April 1st or 3rd. Your selection includes a main (ham, ravioli, beef or salmon), a variety of mouth watering sides and dessert. This all-in-one dinner combo can be selected for two or for five people.
The Village Quire
Send a thoughtful snail mail card for Easter to loved ones across the Country (or across the City) or create the perfect Easter basket filled with chocolate and gift items from The Village Quire. Pick them up in store or have your items shipped via their online shop for your convenience.
Pot and Pantry
Known for their gorgeous kitchen and household items, you’ll be able to stock up on sweet Easter décor and indulgent treats at Pot and Pantry. Discover napkins, plates and bowls for the table in pretty pastel colours. Or stock up on chocolates and gift items.
OCCO Kitchen is once again making local shopping even easier thanks to their Easter Market. Shop for pre-made Easter baskets for the kids, or choose from a series of chocolate bunnies and treats made locally. Place your order online and pick up when you receive the ‘ready’ email!
The Cupcake Lounge
If you are planning to make dinner at home, or have outsourced the main meal but still need a dessert finale, browse the selection at The Cupcake Lounge (for pick up or delivery). Easter cupcakes by the dozen, decorate your own Easter cookies, cookie packages ready to go, cake pops and other delicious bites await.
The Loot Bag Lady
Special Easter baskets for the little bunnies in your life are ready to go, or can be custom created by The Loot Bag Lady. Arrange for a porch pick up or delivery of these curated gifts like mini stuffed animals, sidewalk chalk and stickers packaged in a basket and ready to give.
A complete meal for 8 from Farm Boy is perfect for larger families or those who love leftovers. With your choice of turkey or ham as the star of the dinner, you’ll also be impressed with the savory sides like chive mashed potatoes, cranberry apple sausage stuffing and maple roasted carrots. We know how popular these dinners have been at other holiday times!
