When this Italian grocery branch of the well-known store in the city first opened, they had just a small section of it designated for a light lunch or coffee. They have expanded that area a bit, and it is now easier to find an empty chair. You eat on one of a parallel row of long counters and sit on... More

The renovations have eliminated the risk of not getting a seat in the morning. They have many different paninis and croissants. I do not like the lack of reduced prices for refills of coffee. Gets a little noisy closer to noon hour. Bigger selection of pastries than Duchess and the prices are lower, too. I had the premade cold sandwich... More

Just re-opened after a lengthy shut down due to renovations. Same great food, plus Pizza and a deli/food section. Not too impressed with the high stool seating, but guess it makes more seating room. Nice atmosphere and great service.

The sandwiches are excellent with a good variety of choices The service is friendly and fast and in Edmonton there are 3 locations West End of the city, Downtown in Little Italy and on the South side of Edmonton. Also you can a perfect cup of coffee as you like it or grab any other drink you fancy

So i brought the family here as i wanted my wife to have some pizza. Well this location currently does not do pizza only the west end store currently does pizza. So disappointment. We did have some Italian deli sandwiches which were good. It only cost $22 for 3 deli sandwiches. They do make specialty coffees here as well but... More

Stopped in for a couple espressos and chocolate donut. This is real Italian espresso served in a typical small and usually full small seating area. Definitely not like the fancy hipster cafe places. I appreciate both styles - but it's so nice to have a simple and more authentic Italian espresso experience. It's connected to their Italian grocery store as... More

Spinelli's on 95th street is the original eatery. It has the best latte in my opinion and the best selection of healthy snack foods and gourmet pastries. It is so popular it's hard to get a decent spot in the very crowded dining space. But customers are willing to wait and relish the experience of people watching knowing their turn... More

Everything is fresh and made in the store. It is part of the south side Italian Centre store that has an amazing deli counter. Several variety of sandwiches and desserts. Coffee is excellent. As a bonus you can do your grocery shopping before or after.

The staff are friendly and patient as you try to make up your mind - lots of delicious choices! They have great coffee. The grocery section of the store is well laid out and the fresh produce is high quality. Lots of choices here too. Very clean.

For 40 years, Edmonton's "Little Italy" has made real, old foods live on: a zillion varieties of cheeses and meats from here (Edmonton makers), there (all over Canada and the Hemisphere), and everywhere (Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East) sit behind glass awaiting your acceptance of a sample taste: I once counted 14 types of feta alone, and if you...
