The Green Door Restaurant

Ron Farmer, Jenny Ong, and Charles Miller, Owners

“We specialize in high quality, wholesome foods and baked goods made from ingredients that are locally grown and produced,” says Ron Farmer when he discusses the philosophy of The Green Door. With five decades of experience in the food industry between them (bakery, restaurant, catering, natural foods store, organic gardening), they bring to the restaurant the expertise necessary to fulfill their promise that everything on the extensive menu is prepared on site.

Established in 1988, The Green Door qualifies as “Ottawa’s oldest and best known vegetarian restaurant.”  The menu reflects the seasonal harvest of locally grown organic produce and the casual ambiance is enjoyable for both newcomers and regulars.  They offer a catering service for large and small groups.  ‘The Green Door Cookbook, 2nd edition’ is available, as are gift cards and funky t-shirts featuring Ron’s original art.

Ron, Jenny, and Charles are firm advocates for the food security benefits that are derived from supporting local growers and producers.
