I had read about this little sandwich shop that served coffee so on a recent trip to Edmonton, I thought we would go check this place out. The shop we went to was Farrow’s first location. Farrow has been around since 2014. I originally went there for the coffee but stayed for a sandwich.
To say the place is small, is an understatement. This is a place that if you want to change your mind after you make a decision, you need to go back outside to do so. This place has 3 stools in the window to sit at and a couple of picnic tables outside.
The kitchen is wide open, no hiding anything here. The guys working the kitchen really move the sandwiches out the door.
From what I had read about these guys was that pour overs were their specialty, so when in Rome. They support multiple roasters and change them up all the time. The day I was there they had five different roasters to choose from.
I obviously had a pour over for $4.75. I chose the Kuma Coffee. It was an Aragon – Guatemalan. The tasting notes of Cherry, Melon, and Papaya. This was a nice sweet coffee, it was excellent.
I really loved the artwork on the cup as well.
While we were there we ordered the Grick Middle sandwich for $8.50. I am so glad we did because the sandwich was outstanding. The bread was fresh and soft. The ingredients on the sandwich consisted of a fried egg, bacon (can’t go wrong with bacon), arugula, tomato jam, smoked cheddar cheese and rosemary garlic aioli. All ingredients were super fresh and the sandwich was made right before my eyes.
Did I already tell you the sandwich was amazing, maybe I did?
As I was sitting on the picnic table enjoying my sandwich, about 30 people had come and gone getting the amazing delicacies. These guys are the really into the art of sandwiches.
They also had some baked goods for sale. All of these are also made in house, so they must be pretty good too.
The service overall was terrific. I had to wait a few minutes to get my sandwich, but that was only because there were people in front of me waiting to get their sandwiches. Just so you know, it was worth the wait.
Monday to Friday: 8:00AM – 7:00PM
Saturday and Sunday: 9:00AM – 7:00PM
There is street parking and a lot across the street, depending on the day you go, you will have to pay.
I can tell you one thing, the next time I am in Edmonton, I will be going there to try one of their other creations.
