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.

It's Easy Being Cheesy


It isn’t difficult to find good cheese, like gouda, provolone and emmentaler, in Edmonton. It’s a wee bit more difficult to find unusual fromage, like Polish hunter’s cheese and Friuliano, but if you know where to look (think the Polish Centre and Italian Centre Shop), it is not the quest for the Holy Grail. However, if you’ve a yen for something truly unique and extraordinary, look no further than Paddy’s International Cheese Market and Everything Cheese.

Safron’s Caribbean Delight

As the weather turns colder and skies grow darker, warm and spicy food is an intuitive escape. Safron’s Caribbean Delight, housed in a vivid yellow building on Alberta Avenue, should be on your winter travel itinerary for a Caribbean culinary voyage.
