Battista’s Calzone Company

11745 84th Street - Monday to Friday 11-3
Battista’s Calzone Company broke ground in Edmonton in October of 2010 and quickly established a solid reputation as a delicious purveyor of – as its name suggests – calzones. A calzone, for the uninitiated, is a bit like a pizza that has been folded in half, baked, and then eaten like a sandwich. Six flavours prevail on Battista’s concise menu; the most popular three feature homemade meatballs, spicy Italian sausage, and Italian cold cuts. A nutella version slathers tender dough with rich chocolate-hazelnut spread and fresh
strawberries.

Credo Coffee

10134 - 104th Street
Enter Credo and you are greeted by a sky-high wall of windows, striking artwork, the bustle of multiple baristas working behind the counter in a perfectly choreographed dance, and the scent of freshly ground coffee beans. Credo is one of a scant few Edmonton coffee shops that brews Intelligentsia beans. This direct trade coffee follows a strict philosophy of environmentally friendly growing practices, fair prices for farmers, and exceptional quality of taste and aroma.

Sabu Sushi Bar


7450 82nd Ave
A certain building, just northeast of the perpetually busy 75 street and 82 avenue intersection, has housed an inordinate number of food-related businesses that range from the Buddha Bowl to Juggs Pub. The location seems to bear a curse, since no restaurant has persisted for even a minorly appreciable amount of time. Sabu Sushi Bar is the building’s latest occupant, and they are a tenant worthy of a long term relationship.
