Au Café Show supports and celebrates the Ottawan region by promoting local artists and sourcing most of its products from nearby suppliers. The café's founders, Frédéric Jobin and Geneviève Shaw, studied theatre at the University of Ottawa, putting them on common ground with many of the artists they promote. Their coffee and espresso beans are roasted by Tierra Coop, and patrons can enjoy them with locally baked breads and pastries as they browse the web using free WiFi. Their staff assembles sandwiches and wraps stacked with gourmet ingredients, such as smoked chicken with fresh strawberries and candied walnuts. Other sandwiches feature calabrese salami with green olives and cheddar, or feta, kalamata olives, and cucumbers. Throughout each month, movie screenings and art shows populate the events calendar.
