Billed as a gourmet sandwich bar and coffeehouse, Pressed is a welcome addition to its Centretown West neighbourhood. An ever-changing blackboard menu offers an array of sandwiches made with high-quality ingredients (smoked chicken, eggplant tempura, and margherita are a few favourites), along with soups, salads, and sides. The cozy cafe is also a popular place to be on weekends when brunch is served. Try the Hangover — a waffle topped with smoked beef brisket, cheese curds, and gravy. Add a latte, and you’re ready to take on the day!
