About Our Food
Since 1988, we’ve been bringing together regional farmers and a warm family kitchen feeling at what used to be known as the “granola mall” of Ottawa. Through simple & honest cooking from scratch, The Green Door provides the local community with delicious, accessible, and nourishing food.
Each day, you can expect to choose from a selection of hot dishes and salads, all of which were prepared from scratch. Our menu shifts with the seasons as local farmers deliver fresh, organic produce to our back door. However, you can always find some favourites such as the tofu-broccoli stir fry or avocado salad.
We make great effort to minimize food waste both in the kitchen and with our pay-by-weight style buffet. We collect vegetable off-cuts to make our soup stock, and set aside the leftover scraps for our farmers to use as compost. Our take-out containers are compostable & recyclable, and we also encourage the use of containers brought from home.
The majority of our menu is gluten-free, vegan, and organic - and all dishes are clearly labeled as to whether they contain gluten, dairy, soy, or nuts. Please find a guide to our buffet allergen labels here. We do not use any sweetener in our soup, bread, hot dishes, or salads. The Green Door is fully licensed with a selection that includes organic beers and wine.
There is abundant parking near the restaurant, and OC Transpo buses #5, #55 and #16 will drop you off at our front door. Please connect with us if you have an order, request, or would like to make a reservation for 5 or more.
