It’s 7 a.m., you and your roommates wipe the crusties from your eyes still hungover from the night before. You want to get dressed for your 8 a.m. class but the pain in your empty stomach won’t let you care about your looks.

You go to the fridge – empty, sigh. But not to worry, you know there’s a breakfast waiting for you only a couple steps away for only $4.99. Your destination = Father & Sons.

If you’re an Ottawa student, chances are you’ve eaten breakfast at Father & Sons. But why do Ottawa students love it so much? If you haven’t experienced it yet, here’s 5 reasons why you should TODAY.

Father & Sons knows students, that’s why they open at 7:30 a.m. Monday-Friday so you can get your bacon on before your dreaded 8 a.m. class. During the week breakfast is served until noon, and until 3 p.m. on weekends and holidays. So you can go ahead and sleep in before your hungover breakfast mission on that Sunday afternoon!

3) Quality

Father & Sons has a huge breakfast menu, but nothing is more classic than their signature Breakfast Special. Featuring: 2 eggs, 2 slices of toast, homefries and your choice of sausage, bacon or ham plus coffee or tea, nothing hits the spot quite like it.

2) Price

What do students love more than food? Affordable food. At $4.99, the breakfast special can fit even the tightest student budget. But get there early, after 11 a.m. and on weekends it’s $5.99 but what’s an extra dollar compared to 4 years of rising tuition costs right?

Sitting directly across from uOttawa at the corner of Osgoode St & King Edward Ave, Father & Sons couldn’t be any more convenient. No need to cook or order Uber Eats, the breakfast of your dreams is less than a 5-minute walk from uOttawa residences and Sandy Hill.
