Extra large, extra delicious hot pressed sandwiches are the main reason diners flock to this city center bistro. The Press sandwiches are filled with original ingredients like blue cornmeal crusted soft shell crab, roasted portobello mushrooms and smoked salmon. Look for plenty of homemade fare — from the fries to the desserts, with a full children’s menu available. Floor to ceiling windows keep this small eatery airy and bright, with friendly and efficient service. Weather permitting, you can take your lunch outside on the summer patio and watch the hurried commuters pass by.
Hot off the Grill
Aside from their legendary sandwiches, expect to find gourmet grilled items like Tuscan chicken, herb roasted lamb shanks and juicy New York steak. Free Press burgers are also popular, featuring one with cheddar and another with gorgonzola cheese. Not to be forgotten, are the Free Press homemade pasta dishes, prepared with only the freshest ingredients. Salmon fettuccini with creamy dill sauce and garlicky chicken Alfredo are sure to please the most discriminating palate. A selection from their extensive wine list is the perfect accompaniment to the meal.
Read All About It
The broadsheet style newspaper menu remains the same for the lunch time business crowd and evening diners. Located just two blocks from the Edmonton Journal’s downtown offices, The Free Press was bang on in selecting its quirky décor. Famous pages from years gone by are hung on the walls and suspended from the ceiling, including pages that commemorate Charles Lindbergh’s famous cross-Atlantic flight and New Years Day 2000.
