Swiss 2 Go

Question: what makes a sandwich even better? When it’s served on a pretzel bun! One hot summer day, my friend and I were in the area of Beverly on 118 avenue planning to go to a different restaurant but it was closed. We ended up passing by Swiss 2 Go and decided to stop in. I had been to Swiss once before, when it was at its old location beside West Edmonton Mall. I didn’t know where it had moved to and was glad that we stumbled upon it. You won’t find your average sandwich here. These delicious sandwiches will fill you up with their fresh loaded ingredients and unique combinations! And of course.. pretzel bunsssssss!!!! Service is very friendly as well, I really enjoyed how the owner took the time to talk to her customers.

The Beverly location is a lot more spacious than their old westside location. There are definitely more tables and seats. I also really liked the pretzel decoration on the wall, I want one for myself hehe. Swiss 2 Go offers a variety of different sandwiches to choose from along with soups and salads. There are a few vegetarian options as well. I consider it to be somewhat healthy, which is good because a healthy eatery can be rare in the Edmonton food scene. For those with a sweet tooth, a clear case of Swiss desserts will most likely catch your eye. Everything is housemade ensuring that the Swiss food is authentic. Swiss 2 Go has combination boxes for those who want to try a bit of everything. They include a sandwich, soup or potato salad, water bottle, and small piece of Swiss chocolate. It’s wallet friendly and will leave you filled up! 
Swiss Potato Salad $4.99
We shared a potato salad, which was a mixture of potatoes, hard boiled eggs, pickles, apple pieces, and chopped up dill. The apple added a refreshing touch to the salad. Overall, the salad was very lightweight and the sauce wasn’t too rich or creamy. My friend and I enjoyed it because it was different from the usual potato salad.
Italian Bride $7.99 (reg size)
For myself, I ordered their famous Italian Bride sandwich. It was a feature in Avenue Magazine’s “25 Best Things to Eat in Edmonton” in 2013. I had also ordered it on my first visit to Swiss 2 Go. I noticed that the pretzel bun had changed since then. The first time I had it, it was a bit hard and chewy to eat. This time, it was definitely easier to eat and it had that nice crisp every soft pretzel needs! It also provided a nice salty touch to the sandwich. The sandwich is filled with proscuitto, roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and Bocconcini cheese. I got mine without the tomatoes and with swiss cheese instead just because of personal preference. I recommend trying it first with the original ingredients though. I can be a super picky eater sometimes! Anyways, the sandwich is drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. The sandwich was very flavorful and although it was the regular size, I almost couldn’t finish it. 

Club House $9.99 (large size)
My friend got a large size of the club house sandwich. It was on a pretzel baguette, which was sliced in half. It was filled with a huge amount of toppings! The salami and bacon combined with purple onions, alfalfa sprouts, swiss cheese, and avocado. Mustard and mayo were drizzled on the inside of the baguette. It was a very big portion and tasted fresh.
Bite Sized Swiss Chocolate
We were too full to try one of the delicious looking desserts so we settled on tiny pieces of Swiss chocolate instead. I can’t resist anything that has dark chocolate!
Swiss 2 Go is definitely a hidden gem with unreal sandwiches. It’s hard to find a place like this in Edmonton that offers something out of the ordinary. I recommend stopping by here for quality food in a friendly environment.
