Hi Foodies,

On Tuesday night, Matt and I visited The Cold Pressery, one of my favourite local cafés located in the heart of Mississauga right by Square 1. 

How awesome is this menu board?
The Cold Pressery is an organic juice bar that has a relaxing and laid-back environment, promoting a healthy living.  It's a warm and welcoming space where you will often find people studying/working, swinging by for a post-workout smoothie or hanging out with friends over board games.  The Cold Pressery has a variety of menu options like juices, smoothies, food and snacks.  All the menu items are made from healthy and fresh ingredients and not to mention, the café is 100% vegan!  Cold Pressery also sells fresh nut milks, desserts and they even have a fresh juice program.

Every Tuesday night, The Cold Pressery holds "Cold Pressed Comedy", with no cover!  How awesome is that?! Each week, stand-up comedians from across the GTA come to perform and give you a good chuckle!  Matt and I have had "Cold Pressed Comedy" on our list for quite some time.  We finally had the opportunity to go and decided to head there early to enjoy a light dinner at the café.  

For dinner, Matt had the vegan grilled cheese and I had the chipotle bean tacos.  To drink, we both enjoyed Iced Matcha Lattes. The Iced Matcha Lattes were so good, the perfect amount of matcha flavour, agave for sweetness and almond milk for a creamy finish! 

Chipotle Bean Tacos
The tacos were served on two gluten-free white corn tortillas with a medley of beans, chickpeas, onions, mushrooms, celery & corn on avocado spread topped with diced tomatoes and purple cabbage drizzled with a smoky chipotle sauce. They were so yummy and colourful.  The tacos were light with a delicious variety of texture and the smoky chipotle sauce tied the dish together perfectly.

Vegan Grilled Cheese
Warm melted Daiya cheese sandwiched between two pieces of perfectly golden toast plus roasted tomatoes and spinach.  A classic grilled cheese made vegan! 

Left: carrot cake | Right: mocha
For dessert, we ordered some vegan cupcakes - carrot and mocha.  They were fresh, moist and yummy! Of course, I had to order one of my favourites...the Açaí bowl.  Açaí puree blended with banana, mango and almond milk.  Topped with hemp seed & pumpkin flax granola, seasonal fruit and coconut whip cream.  This healthy and delicious dessert gives any frozen yogurt joint a run for their money.

The food was amazing and the comedy was fantastic.  There were 5 stand-up comedians, including David Andrew Kent and they all had a great lineup that really got the crowd going. The headliner was Paul Thompson, he was absolutely hilarious!  We had such a great time laughing at all the jokes and impressions, it was the perfect weeknight activity.  I love how they have new comics every week, the perfect reason to keep you coming back for more laughs.

We had a fun filled night at The Cold Pressery and can't wait to go back for another comedy night with our friends!

Where is your favourite week night hang out?
