Best Spots in Ottawa for Flower Lovers

I challenge you to find someone who doesn’t love fresh-cut flowers. Thankfully, Ottawa hosts a ton of amazing florists and floral shops—here are nine different spots for flower lovers to check out!

Côté Fleurs Shop

Hintonburg and Westboro residents may remember Côté Fleurs from its time at the Parkdale Market this past summer. It has since moved to a more permanent spot in Little Italy at 70B Beech street. Check out Côté Fleurs’ small, medium, and large bouquets, or make one yourself with their flower bar!

Also for sale are fresh and dried eucalyptus, dried arrangements, candles, cards, and more. The space also hosts a vintage clothing shop and home decor!
