Sobeys in the Urban Core- “To where the Neighbourhood comes to get Fresh.”


Last night I wandered down to Sobeys  which just opened on the corner of Lisgar and Metcalfe.

Welcome to Ottawa’s Urban Lifestyle-  – walking and biking to all your needs.

Wow, many of us had hoped that the old Goldstein’s on Elgin would be replaced by another grocery store but this is better than one could hope for.Certainly all the people who also work downtown are overjoyed as well.

With the amount of condos being built downtown, the “hoods” were in dire need of a large grocery store. Especially with good take out and pre cooked foods.

This one delivers that in spades. SOBEYS  Clean, friendly, and choice galore.

The take out food is plentiful and varied with a Sushi counter with Ramen noodles and soup . There is a serving counter for take out and a self serve counter which both times that I have been there ( late evenings) is almost sold out ( the chick pea masala is excellent). Lots of cooked vegetable’s ( my favorite the spaghetti squash- cooked al dente – which was of course sold out).


The cheese displays are endless. Picture is only part of the display.


Just try to get past the  cake counter. The cream pies have their own cooler !


Fish counter looked great and a butcher counter as well as display coolers.


The vegetables make you want to become a Vegetarian.


There is a coffee bar attached and a wine outlet.

Best of all- Open from 7:00 a.m. till 11:00 p.m. every day.
