Colombian Coffee Cafe

Coffee and pastries! A timeless duo that will never lose its connection. My favourite place lately is @thecolombianyeg ! Ever since they opened, I’ve found myself here pretty often.

One of the best cafes to study and drink yummy coffee with pretty latte art 🤗 Not to mention I’m now obsessed with their bagels.

Not only is the food and coffee great but the service is unreal too. Everyone is so incredibly friendly and I’ve never felt so welcomed anywhere else like I do here. I can’t tell you enough how great the people working here are. Just always happy and always socializing. This is currently my absolute favourite cafe in edmonton.

Derose Bros Meats

This is by far that best hidden gem I’ve came across in Edmonton. Just off 99st, is @derosebrosmeats 🔥
They have so many options for sandwiches and so many home made products to buy. All super local or home made. Since their a butcher shop, their meat is super good quality and freshly cut. It’s all run by an unbelievably nice Italian family, who are just passionate about authentic Italian food. Super comforting, filling and affordable food 👌🏼

The sandwich I got for the first time was the Fettine and ohhhhh myyyyy godddd it was killer, ever since then I was hooked onto Derose. I could eat sixteen more of the Fettine and still not get tired of it. Unreal. Also a favourite of mine is their Philly cheese steak and cheese burger, both super affordable and absolutely incredible. They have rotating specials everyday, my favourite is “steak and lobster Friday”. $15 can get you some fresh, full of flavour lobster and the best cooked steak, all between some bread. It’s a monster sandwich so be ready to share it or eat it all and food coma like I did.

I’m gonna be here a lot considering it’s so close to my work 😂

Caramunchies

Oh hello caramunchies!! These are amazing. They’re so simple yet so addictive. I brought these to share with one of my colleagues and he goes “I could eat a giant bag of these”, me too. They’re actually incredible. Not only are they good but they’re locally made here in Edmonton!

Go support her and get some great stocking stuffers!! (Or just some munchies for yourself!

Tokiwa Ramen

Black garlic, goma goma, black garlic

Tokiwa has stolen my heart and isn’t letting me have it back… but i’m really not complaining! This ramen joint tucked into the brewery district, downtown, is my go-to favourite place to eat. I could eat here everyday (and I just about do).

My order is the Goma Goma($14) with extra noodles($3.50). The perfect bowl of creamy, porky goodness. They make the ramen completely from scratch. All house made, even the condiments on the table are made by them too!

I can never get enough of Tokiwa. After trying just about ever well known ramen spot in Edmonton, I crown Tokiwa #1.

Seoul Fried Chicken (SFC)

Most definitely can never go wrong with @seoulfriedchicken for lunch 👌🏼 So affordable, so delicious.

Garlic Soy Set

Their 5PC Lunch Set is actually so unbeatable. It’s super filling, super flavourful and SUPER YUM. After trying the entire menu, my favourites are GP Cheese and Garlic Soy 😍🍗 The kale caesar salad is really good (set comes with two sides) and I wasn’t disappointed, but I still think I like the slaw or Mac and cheese pesto better 🤘🏼 And of course fries always.

Farrow Sandwiches

All hail the sandwich masters over at Farrow Sandwiches.
(Located in Ritchie and Garneau area on 109st)

One thing I’ll never say no to is perfectly crafted sandwiches by Farrow. I’ve never once had a bad experience here and it’s always suggested the most every time we’re discussing our work lunch destination. Bread is always the perfect match to its ingredients inside, each component compliments one another. It’s absolutely fantastic! This is totally an upgrade from the sandwiches you’re used to.

Not to mention they make unique flavoured (and regular) donuts + brownies. I’ve never had a bad donut at Farrow. They’re just killing it over there.

Constantly rotating their “feature” sandwich and their infamous fully vegan option, theres always something great and new to eat at Farrow.
