Pressed


Wow, I love this place! I went here for lunch expecting to try and soup and salad, until I saw it – gluten-free bun available – yay! So I indulged in the most sinful sandwich on the menu, slow-smoked beef brisket with caramelized onion and aioli. Although that dish with it's side of sweet potato chips and spicy pickled green bean would have been more than enough food, I couldn't help but get the ceasar salad with bacon bits to start. Oh, and a B. Goods  ginger cookie for later (it was made with spelt, how could I leave it behind!?).


My husband had the margherita sandwich, basil, tomato, fresh mozzarella and pesto. Also a winner.

The toughest part was having to go back to the office when I was done eating.  Space is open, airy and bright with church pews and couches. It's the kind of place you just want to stick around and sip latt├ęs all afternoon.

Service was awesome, food delicious but sandwiches pricy. Sandwiches range from $6 to $13.

My butternut squash and apple soup was also quite good, as was the Caesar salad.

Thanks for introducing me to this one.

Your posts always make me wish I lived in Ottawa.

Well, we're getting closer. My husband and I moved to Toronto this spring. Maybe someday I'll be able to get up to Ottawa and try some of these delicious looking restaurants.
