EL MERO MERO
First a food truck, and now a full-blown restaurant! You’ll be able to try everything from tamales to queso fundido to enchiladas, alongside their full range of tacos. Know the other bonus of opening a restaurant? Being able to add some more, ahem, adult beverages to the menu.
Where: 12223 156 Street NW
This Vancouver-based chain specializes in the wildly fluffy Japanese souffle pancake. If you’re looking for a sweet brunch (or dinner) treat on a warm day, this is our top pick.
Where: 8103 104 Street NW
We’re late to the party on this one, but it’s still more than worth a mention! This new restaurant is actually located at the Art Gallery of Alberta, making it the perfect way to cap off a visit there.
Where: 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square
SAMMIES BY SODO
Well, looks like we’ve got our next treat ourselves lunch covered. A new concept launched by SoDo, the Sammies front focuses on exactly what you’d expect- delicious, deli-style sandwiches that go great with a sunny summer day. It’s a simple option for new restaurants in Edmonton, but we guarantee it’s worth it.
Where: 11011 Jasper Avenue

Arguably the most exciting name on this list, Leopard is a new pizza spot opening in Glenora. And while that’s enough to grab our attention, there’s a more important factor here – it’s the first sister restaurant of the beloved, and nationally acclaimed, Bar Clementine.
Where: 14053 West Block Drive
Of course, it’s not all general timeframes, as Edmonton’s newest spot for ice cream opens in early July! A sweet treat to beat the heat this summer? Yeah, that’s a no-brainer.
Where: 10983 127 Street
Edmonton, it’s finally open! Known all over North America, P.F. Chang’s is finally open here in Edmonton. Is it as delicious as everyone says? There’s only one way to find out!
Where: 6004 Currents Drive NW
Originally announced last fall, the concept is a more casual option with a focus on delicious sandwiches. End-of-summer summer lunch idea? We love to see it!
Where: 10403 83 Avenue NW
EL FURNITURE WAREHOUSE
Last but certainly not least is this ‘premium dive bar’ concept that has taken over cities like Calgary and Vancouver. When every food item on the menu should be $10 or less, that just means wayyy more budget for some beers (or non-alcoholic alternatives) with your friends!
Where: 10765 Jasper Avenue
There you have it! Our top picks for the new restaurants, cafes and more to try out in Edmonton this summer! Enjoy all the delicious options, friends.
