Go here from time to time for business lunch. Light lunches are my preference here but I have also enjoyed dinner at Merlos. Never disappointed.

It was with great expectations we went into Press and Bean. I had heard so much about it, and was expecting to be wowed. It was not very busy,just two other tables. Orders were made. The appetizers were wonderful. From there things went downhill. We waited for over 50 minutes to get the main course. Only once we were advised... More

Recently this has become a place for a "work" lunch to celebrate a milestone of some kind and has offered consistently good food and good service. The panini sandwiches are excellent and the strawberry and spinach salad is equally good. In bigger groups the food may not always be the hottest though every visit has left everyone happy with value... More

I had the Calgary Herald half sandwich with a caesar salad. Too much BBQ sauce on the sandwich for my liking, and a bit messy so I had to cut it up with fork and knife, but it was fine. The salad was pretty good. They kindly let us stay a while after we finished eating to talk. Good prices... More

Ate here in early December with another couple. Food was really good as usual. We have never had a bad meal at PB in 20 yrs. always consistent quality. The downtown location was a regular place for us. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

The food itself is great. I really enjoy their Texas news panini. However the amount of time that it takes not only to get your food but also to order and receive your bill is not acceptable. I don't know if there is a problem in training or managing or what but to go here for a reasonable amount of... More

The food at this restaurant is very tasty and good size portions. The only negative comment I have about restaurant needs to be upgraded.

This was one of our favourite places to dine. Last few times we visited, said I'd never go back again. Some of the menu items that we would order, disappeared and was told they could not get from supplier anymore, Bull**it!!@ Price went up for them to purchase, but the restaurant price was way up anyways.
