Ottawa's Downtown Italian DeliThe best place to find a sandwich downtown is La Bottega. Stacked with meats, cheeses, hot eggplant, hot peppers, lettuce, tomato and olives, these $5 sandwiches can be shared with a friend along with a soda and a chocolate bar, cannoli, or a gluten-free cookie. Peak times are noon to 1pm, so expect a line if you go during that time. Great if you're solo here on business and looking for a quick bite, but also if you want to stock up your hotel room with snacks (including cheeses, lots of delicious cheeses).
