***Sadly this Restaurant is Closed***
We love discovering new places, especially when they’re around the office, which doesn’t have many fun spots for lunch. We were recently invited to Café SanPresso, a new café and sandwich shop located in the West Island. They wanted to bring that East End café feel to the west and after our visit, we can assure you that they know what they’re doing.
We arrived at the café and were warmly greeted and quickly explained the menu written on the chalkboard behind the bar. He recommended us his favourite sandwiches. We settled on splitting two sandwiches, the veal and the SanPresso Special, but we would like to return to try the salads and sides.
The sandwiches come in two sizes, small and large; we opted for the large. The veal was breaded and the sandwich was all dressed. Italian panini all dressed means that it had lettuce, tomatoes, marinated eggplant, and hot peppers. Just the way we like it. The bread was delicious, soaking up any oil from the hot peppers and eggplant. The breading was crunchy but the meat was tender.
The SanPresso special is made with sausage and thinly sliced steak and it’s ridiculously good! This was our favourite of the two. The sandwich was overflowing with sausage, steak, and all the toppings. It was fresh and filling, and it definitely hit the spot. Again, the bread never got soggy and held everything in the sandwich. This is one you’ll want to order again!
Satisfied with our lunch, we finished off with a cappuccino each, presented with a mountain of foam on top! And for a little added decadency, we were offered the SanPresso Oreos, which are deep fried. The truly adult way of eating Oreos. The batter was crunchy, the cookie inside was soft and slightly warm; it was comforting and gluttonous all at the same time. We were too full and tired by the time we returned to work…
SanPresso is a great addition to the West Island which was lacking in quick and delicious lunch options. They also have a night menu that includes wings, jalapeno poppers, potato wedges and more, and they will soon be getting their liquor license.
If you work or live in the West Island, we strongly advise you to conveniently forget to pack a lunch and head to SanPresso for one of their delicious sandwiches. You can be sure that the Divas will back!
