“I Did Eat Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

I saw Pressed featured on You Gotta Eat Here. By fluke the episode aired just before I was to go to Ottawa. After dropping my bags at my hotel I walked straight to the restaurant (25 minutes away). It was well worth the trip. The menu is well balanced for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans. Julia; one of two very friendly staff; was thrilled to hear that I had chosen their place because of the publicity from the TV show. She paired a perfect beer selection to go with the Pulled Wild Boar sandwich. It was a fabulous combo and was just the right amount of food for lunch. Prices were very reasonable. The atmosphere is very simple and relaxed. Pretentious foodies who demand the decor satisfy their sensibilities need not bother annoying the rest of us with their presence. Will definitely return to this hidden gem.

Waffles and beef brisket are delicious. Coffee is outstanding. Very resonably priced. Strange concoction with the waffles but absolutely delicious!!

“Becoming an addiction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2012

I originally came here as part of Found magazine's cross-continent tour and decided to have dinner as well. I'm so glad I did as this spot's now become a favourite. Small but cozy, this sandwich (and waffles on weekends!) shop is a wonderful spot to spend a few hours catching up and chowing down.

The beef brisket, pulled pork, and trout sandwiches are all outstanding and the caesar salad is one of the best I've ever had. The spicy sweet potato chips that come with every sandwich are sometimes a bit too greasy but habit-forming nonetheless. The waffles are good (though not as filling as the sandwiches) and I'm drooling just thinking about the sour cherry/hot sauce combo that I had with my last order.

Cheerful service, kitschy atmosphere, fair prices and good food. Pressed is definitely a neighbourhood favourite.

“DEFINITLY GO HERE!!! Fave place. Millions of vegan options x”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012 via mobile

This is my face place in Ottawa! Really great coffee, really cool, cosy and quirky and DELICIOUS food! So many vegan options too. The owner was lovely and the whole experience was great. The staff knew I was vegan and directed me to the MANY vegan options. Independent business, art on the walls, open mic nights, comfy sofas - who could ask for anything more? x
