About Us

Livin' the dream...

Welcome to The Modern General Store Inc.  

Many years ago I dreamt of owning my own something that finally came to reality.  I just made up my mind that the time had come to do what I love: entertain people in my kitchen.  So, in 2016, wineglass in hand in sunny Ottawa I drew out the floorplan for what the store looks like today.  The style, industrial farmhouse, is really just a collection of things that appeal to me so I thought it might work as a comfortable, warm spot for others to meet over a cup of really good coffee and a delicious treat made one batch at a time: The old-fashioned way with butter, sugar, eggs and damn good chocolate.        

Along with a great team of local talent, I welcome you to The Store.

Our Mission

Rise and Shine


We bake fresh every morning and the warm smell of baking often escapes onto the street before we've even opened. We're dedicated to kickstarting your morning with warm muffins, buttery scones and a cup of hot coffee!

Handcrafted and Local Goods


We work with local suppliers like 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters and Silk Road Tea to source the freshest and most authentic ingredients, and use old-fashioned techniques to ensure the highest quality. Our goal is to make your tastebuds happy!
