The Cauldron Kitchen is a shared commercial kitchen available for rent by the hour. We are proud to share our kitchen with Ottawa’s growing food community. Learn how we can make your culinary dreams come true. 



The Cauldron Kitchen is about community. The cauldron is a symbol for the village cauldron where the villagers come to make food together, each bringing their own skills, tastes, and innovation. At The Cauldron Kitchen, we aim to provide a space for food ideas to grow and mature. We want to help grow a sustainable food culture in Ottawa, by providing the space for food starts-ups, established food businesses, and private citizens to create and prepare delicious food.

The Cauldron Kitchen Inc., is a partnership between David and Dave. David is an energy engineer with a keen sense of opportunity, while Dave is a seasoned food veteran, and co-owner of a successful craft butcher shop and delicatessen, The Piggy Market. Together, they cooked up this concept and plowed ahead to build this shared commercial kitchen business. Their passion lies with the desire to see good food on the table and on the street. It is their wish to see The Cauldron Kitchen bubble into a thriving food community. Come join us and stir a while at The Cauldron.
