If you're a student, do NOT go to Roast n' Brew Coffee on Rideau. This location is extremely rude and cold to students. I bought an expensive iced latte which was not very good. After studying there for a few hours, a barista asked me if I was going to buy something else. She said if I didn't buy something else I had to leave. No one else in the "restauraunt" was approached who had been there the same amount of time as I had. I mentioned it to the manager on my way out and she did not apologize for singling me out because I'm a student.
I really wouldn't recommend this place. It's over priced, and the poor service doesn't make it worth it. Bring your business to anywhere but here.
I've been going to Roast'n'Brew ever since this location opened up and my impression so far has been anything but what the first person described. I'm also uottawa student and throughout the whole winter semester I'd come to Roast'n'Brew for lunch almost every single day. Their price range is not any higher than what average prices on uottawa campus would be. The only difference is that the quality of their food and drinks is considerably higher than what coffee shops tend to sell on campus.
I also do think it's a common courtesy- not to spend hours on end in a coffee shop after buying one drink at the very most. From what I understand, this place is run by a family and they have electricity and rent bills to pay which no one can afford if customers keep coming in, using their coffee shop as a study room while barely bothering to buy more than just a cup of coffee. It's not Starbucks or Tim Hortons.
P.S. Coincidentally, I bought their "expensive iced latte" a few times. And it was pretty good. Whatever they added to that latte did not make me experience severe allergic reactions unlike those frappuccinos at a place like Starbucks.
