The Café

Few museums offer as beautiful a dining space as the one at the War Museum. The Café benefits from the modern architecture of the Museum, and its massive bay windows opening onto the terrace overlook the Ottawa River. While at The Café, you can view reproductions of artworks by artist Hikmet Çetinkaya. This artist’s work focuses on the poppy which is an international symbol of remembrance. Visit our Catering and Banquets page or Facility Rentals page for your private events.
