Great Savoury Waffles

We went to Pressed for Sunday Waffle Brunch after trying some of their takeout snacks and loving them. We had 'Waffles Benedict' (3.5/5 - the eggs were very vinegary) and 'The Hangover' (4/5 - the gravy was overpowering to the cheese and brisket) with unlimited coffee (5/5 - great roast, great... read more

Thought we would try the popular "waffle brunch" with a few friends a few weeks ago because we've heard "rave reviews." First of all, you order your breakfast up at the cash. I had asked for a slightly modified version of the waffle (by modified, I was asking for them to not put all of the toppings on the waffle,... More

If it's Monday, consider Pressed for a casual dinner and a down-home music scene that'll keep your toes tappin'. Interesting sandwich choices, with a world of flavour options, and the music starts at 8:00. We'll definitely go back and tell our folksy friends about the music.

Decided to visit here on a recent visit to Ottawa, we looked up restarunts on "You have to eat here" and found this one. The inside was nice and trendy and at 10:00 am wasn't busy at all so lots of room. I had the "Big Apple" waffle, it was excellent although a lot of food. There were lots of... More

Went here with a couple of friends for brunch, and we ordered a variety of sweet and savoury dishes. The waffles were fresh and the poached eggs and hollandaise sauce were the best I have had. My wife was pleasantly surprised with her croissant sandwich. Would come back again and try some other dishes, as this was a positive experience.

Went with the family while on vacation. Didn't live up to expectations. You get a lot of bread but light on meat and veggies. If you are looking for white bread than this is the place for you. Expensive compare to other sandwich shops with poor service. The cashier appears to think that she is better than her current job... More

Had a nice lunch break at Pressed. Had been there only once before. Ordered the red pepper soup and a sandwich with black beans and guacamole. Everything was absolutely delicious. The sandwich came with the sweet potato chips. They don't salt them too much and they have wonderful taste and consistency. The meal took a little longer to come out... More

Nice little cozy café close to the Italian neighborhood. Nice selection of sandwich with homemade smoked meat such as boar, brisket and trout. The homemade chips are also wonderful. Prices are freaking ridiculous for the quality of the food. Waiter was really nice and helpful. I hear the weekend brunch of waffles are also very good but I have not... More

Dropped in, unexpected, at noon. Early enough to get quick counter service and a table without a close neighbour. Menu choices were/are quite nice and varied. Brisket chili for me. Smoked trout sandwich for colleague. Fancy soda pops. Chatted about work without being overheard. By 12:30 it was very busy and much louder. Not good for business lunches, like ours.... More

Visits Ottawa and took the opportunity to visit this resteraunt as it was featured on "You gotta eat here". Can't say this was a great place nor will I come here again. The atmosphere and service were great but the food was not what I expected. The "New South" was interesting, the chicken croquets were a little strange and I... More
