Tis the season for treats, lights, decorative shrubs, and for many of us, shopping. I know many people swear by online shopping, and I find myself in that category quite a bit, too. But there are some things one just has to pick out in person. For me? Groceries, pants, lipstick, candles.
One perk about being out and about shopping is that you might want to treat yourself to lunch. Or maybe breakfast, dinner, or midnight snack, depending on when you like to shop. I recently discovered Pressed Cafe in Nashua, which just so happens to be around the corner from the mall in Nashua, off exit 1 on Spit Brook Road. Their mission is to provide healthy, fast food. The vibe I got walking in was a little more upscale than I expected, with fun lighting and beautiful wood surfaces.
My late lunch/early dinner was enormous, so heads up on big, hearty portions. The food was so good that I ate it all. The funky white dish (bowl, mug, a hybrid?) is filled with their scrumptious butternut squash soup. It’s definitely on the sweet side, but I could drink this for any meal. The sandwich is their Medusa which is PRESSED in a panini maker. Fresh ciabatta bread is stuffed with layers of crispy eggplant, lettuce, tomato, and avocado, and topped with a spicy and creamy feta spread, hummus, and salty olives. It’s filled with so many different flavors, textures and deliciousness. As I mentioned, I destroyed my meal in one sitting but I bet that sandwich would taste amazing as leftovers.
Here’s a close-up on the sandwich because those layers deserve it. I think the feta, hummus, and olive combination was my favorite part.
I also got a coffee, which honestly didn’t taste great with the sandwich, but was 100% necessary with the day I was having. They have a full coffee bar, as well as some great looking smoothies and raw juices. Whatever you need to finish up your shopping, they probably have it!
You can visit Pressed Cafe at 108 Spit Brook Road in Nashua, as well as their brand new drive through only location at 3 Cotton Road, Nashua. They are open until at least 9:00 pm seven days a week!
