Myhre’s Sandwich Shop & Poutinerie
Myhre’s Sandwich Shop & Poutinerie has provided diners with the complete meat shop experience since it started chopping and preparing meat in 2002. Brad Myhre, a long-time fan of Montreal’s famed smoked meat restaurants, wanted to open a spot where Calgarians could indulge in an authentic deli lunch without having to fly five hours. Wilensky’s, a Montreal landmark immortalized in Mordecai Richler’s novel The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, influenced the deli’s dazzling wooden walls and tables. They are open every Monday to Saturday, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

“As good as it gets outside of Montreal, and I’m a diehard fan of Schwartz’s deli! I stick to the traditional with hot mustard and punchy horseradish. Generous amount of meat with a good amount of fat on it in between some decent rye bread. The coleslaw and pickle really help cut the richness and round out the meal. Wash it down with a cherry soda for the authentic deli experience! Friendly and attentive staff, and great service! You can bet on me coming again soon.” – Zac Ardena
Lazy Loaf & Kettle
Lazy Loaf & Kettle is owned and operated by Michel and Helen Labonté. They developed the Lazy Loaf and Kettle into the flourishing company it is today by relying on recipes passed down over decades and being bold enough to concoct a couple of their own. The popularity of the Lazy Loaf, which has grown from 2 to over 30 workers in 20 years, shows the Labontés had the right formula by beginning with and sticking to home-grown ingredients. Customers and employees have been faithful to the old-fashioned sugar buns, homemade soups and salads, and baked goods from Grandma’s recipe box.

“I absolutely love their sandwiches and love how you can customize what you want. The deserts are amazing and the cookies are massive. Definitely a family favorite and worth the wait (average 5-10 minutes after ordering) for fresh and delicious food!” – Steven Neilson
Press’d Sandwich Shop
Press’d Sandwich Shop is a timeless staple in Canada. It’s a story about a search to find people what they really want for lunch: the ultimate sandwich, set on basketball courts and food courts. Gavin Fedorak and Scott Gordon, two University of Arizona basketball teammates, were in Phoenix in the mid-2000s, finding solace in sandwiches following an especially lopsided loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils. The food they found was wonderful freshly cooked bread stuffed with high-quality meats, cheese, and vegetables. They were filling and reasonably priced, and the whole encounter turned out to be a victory for the boys after their defeat on the court. It also ignited the beginning of an idea for their businessmen.

“Visiting from California on business. This place is run by two very nice gentlemen, made me feel right at home. Everything was really neat and clean. I had the Blazing Buffalo and just loved it. Fresh bread and ingredients. If you are in the area and need a bite, do check them out.” – Siddharth Rane
Euphoria Cafe is a one-of-a-kind cafe that functions as a community gathering spot for family and friends, students to read, social gatherings to be held, a place to relax and work, and even a spot to host the writing club, among other activities.

“One of the only quality cafés in NW Calgary. Currently serving Rosso (local roaster) coffee with high-quality pour-overs available by the cup. The baked goods and food have always been very good and there are GF/Keto/Veg options for those who require them. For a small shop, there is a surprising amount of seating indoor as well as some tables outdoors. Free parking and lots of places within 100m to sit and enjoy a drink outside.” – Brad BJ
Spolumbo’s Fine Foods & Deli
Spolumbo’s Fine Foods & Deli uses only the best quality in their sausages, burgers, catering platters, and everyday specialties, all of which are created right here. Many great employees have come and gone over time, but every member of the Spolumbo team lives their ethos of excellence, service, and community, whether new or old. They instill these ideals in their employees through their own rich cultures and organizations, constantly setting the example from the top-down, similar to the Vatican except without the striped pajamas security guards.
