#WelliWander with Lucy van Oldenbarneveld

Lucy van Oldenbarneveld is a well-known, much-loved Ottawa public figure. As a former CBC radio host and CBC TV news anchor, Lucy has woven herself into the fabric of the city and the hearts of the community. Her passion has and continues to be sharing the stories of the people she meets, including those of Wellington West business owners and personnel. Read on to find out where her #WelliWander takes her:

Trove Fashion

I have loved Trove since it opened. Great quality consignment clothes and accessories. The owners and staff are clearly passionate about fashion. They have a smart, effective Instagram game!

Flava Factory

This dance studio is teaching urban dance and our teenager would live there if she could. Amazing instructors who care about their students. They are plugged into the community through events and performances.

Bread By Us

Great products and great people. They pay their employees a fair wage and they give back to the community. I am eating way more bread since they moved into Wellington West. Cannot be helped. So good!

Little Macs

Delicious food. Supporting the local burger and fry movement in our neighbourhood has been a cause my family is solidly behind. 😉 And they have parking which is awesome!

Les Moulins La Fayette

The almond chocolate croissants are off the charts. We have to eat them in moderation. I love stopping for an oat milk latte when I’m out for a walk. A very cozy spot, and I can’t wait to once again sit indoors!
