Delicious and Economical: Lorenzo's

In search of a late afternoon lunch today, I wandered over to Zuppa Cafe, but was disappointed to find out that they would be closed until January 2. They have one of the most inexpensive meals I have ever encountered in the city centre area - a bowl of hearty, homemade soup of the day and a side of baked pita chips for $3 - perfect for a light lunch.

Thus, I made my way to my reliable backup - Lorenzo's in Edmonton City Centre West (10025-102A Avenue). Though they recently moved from the City Centre East food court, they haven't changed the specials they offer. My staple in high school, they were not only affordable (a pizza, pasta, and drink combo for about $5), but also, the service has always been excellent. The woman who is a mainstay at Lorenzo's is always friendly, efficient, and sprinkles terms of endearment like "honey" in her speech, making me feel welcome and taken care of.

On this day, I ordered the small lasagna, which came to a measly $3. Though there was only one layer of cheese, there was enough pasta layers for a filling midday snack, rounded out with a generous topping of meat and tomato sauce.

Lorenzo's is a great place to go for a quick bite!
