Collective café

The Collective is built around the concept of: a group. a common interest. sharing. partnership. coming together. a unified vision.

The Collective café

The Collective café offers informal counter-service offering grab-and-go and takeaway options to be enjoyed in both indoor and outdoor (seasonal) seating areas. Visitors will enjoy a family-friendly range of sandwiches, soups, daily specials, picnic boxes and sweet and savoury snacks. Afternoon snacks round out the day with mezze and antipasto boxes to suit all age ranges.

The region of Ottawa-Gatineau boasts a remarkable array of food artisans, farmers, and producers who contribute to the vibrancy of our city’s flavours. These products tell stories, and just as a good story is meant to be shared, The Collective strives to share these food experiences with all our visitors.

Museums are sensory experiences. We believe part of the visitor experience should be all encompassing and stimulating to the senses, including taste. A visitor experience that includes taste is one that leaves them with a discovery of a new flavour, a story behind the product.

We invite you to discover The Collective at one of three Ingenium locations.
