Eat In, Take Out: Swiss 2 Go

March 01, 2014

Every once in a while I crave a good sandwich. Everyone has their personal preferences for meats, veggies, and condiments. For myself, I love a sandwich with cured meats. It has to be moist (either from vegetables or sauces) and the bun has to be soft with a slight chew.

Swiss 2 Go - 17104 90 Avenue - Edmonton AB

I first encountered Swiss 2 Go at the Avenue Edmonton Party for the 25 Best Things to Eat for 2013. They won an award for their Italian Bride sandwich, and I was able to sample a mini version of it. Being nothing short of delicious, I knew I needed to visit their location for the real deal. Flash forward several months, and I finally stopped by last week!

Swiss 2 Go is a little cafe best suited for takeout orders. However, with little tables scattered around the space you're open to taking a seat and enjoying your meal. Chalkboards overhead at the counter highlight the menu, while a display case on the left houses single-sized desserts and snacks to take on the go.

Swiss 2 Go offers a variety of soups, salads and sandwiches as part of their regular menu. All the sandwiches are served on a housemade pretzel bun and are available in two sizes, so you can order according to your appetite.

For lunch, my boyfriend ordered the Thanksgiving ($7.99 - regular): smoked turkey, French Brie, romaine hearts, red pepper, mayo & mustard on pretzel baguette. All the ingredients were fresh and there was a kick of heat from the mustard. The vegetables gave the sandwich a nice crunch and also helped to balance the flavour.

For myself, I had to get the Italian Bride ($7.99 - regular): Italian prosciutto, roasted red pepper, sun dried tomatoes, sliced Bocconcini, fresh basil drizzled with extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinaigrette on pretzel baguette. Does that not sound amazing? The flavours work together so well - saltiness from the prosciutto, tangy notes from the sundried tomatoes, and freshness from the red peppers and bocconcini. The pretzel bun itself had a nice hard crust while the interior was soft like a pillow. My only gripe with the bun was how hard the points on the bun were - it hurt when pushed against the roof of my mouth. I do have to mention that you have to be prepared to get a little messy, as the moisture from the red peppers and oil from the sundried tomatoes makes the sandwich slippery and a little difficult to eat. It's totally worth it though!

At $7.99 per sandwich you might feel that it's a bit expensive. However, Swiss 2 Go offers a great deal with their "Sandwich Team Box" that allows you to make a combo of a sandwich, soup or salad, a bottle of water & a bite size swiss chocolate for $12.99 (regular) or $14.99 (large). That's definitely comparable to having lunch at a restaurant. With so many different sandwich combinations I'm sure there is something that will satisfy your tastes. Swiss 2 Go is located in a small strip mall across from West Edmonton Mall and is a great alternative to eating in the food court or a restaurant in the mall. If you drive by too quickly it's easy to miss, but trust me, you don't want to drive past this place.

  6. Always wondered what the heck was up with that place as it is right by where we deliver ice. Seemed so odd. Who has heard of a swiss cafe before? After reading your review I became hungry which means now I have to check the place out. Hard to find a good sandwich in this world.
