Take a seat at SOLO District


After what feels like an impossibly long winter, the sun is finally starting to peek out from behind the clouds.


We’re trying to enjoy every ray so we’re taking full advantage of brand new seating here at SOLO District.
Orange and blue benches were recently installed along Skyline Drive and between Shoppers Drug Mart and Whole Foods.
Custom built by Green Theory Distributors, these benches are made from heavy gauge powder coasted aluminum. They’re the perfect place to stop and enjoy a coffee or sit and have a chat with a friend. Plus they add a beautiful pop of colour to our community!

Welcome Neighbour! Ricky’s Café delivers fresh eats

No neighbourhood would be complete without a place to kick back, relax and have some classic comfort food with friends. SOLO District’s newest business provides all that and more.
Ricky’s Café recently opened their doors, bringing an array of tasty new options to our community. Whether you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion, grab a quick bite on the go, or get out of having to do the dishes, this is the place for you.
Read on to sample some of what Ricky’s Café has to offer.

A classic clubhouse sandwich, served with crispy sweet potato fries.


WHAT IS RICKY’S CAFÉ?: A new spin on an old classic! Ricky’s Café offers a streamlined menu and upscale yet comfortable décor for a comfortable dining experience for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We also have a “Grab and Go” Gourmet Deli Sandwich Bar with high quality made-for-you sandwiches, crafted with fresh breads and served Panini-style or oven-baked. We also offer a Gourmet Home Meal Take-out that’s ready when you are — customers call in and we prepare it fresh for pick up or delivery.


Ricky’s Café is a perfect match for the density of people who live and work in SOLO District’s fast-paced environment. We give people the option of eating in, taking out or having meals delivered to their door.

Some of the delicious toppings available for fresh, made-to-order sandwiches.


We are excited to open our second location on March 23 in Red Deer, Alberta. Same concept, same great food!


Different from Ricky’s All Day Grill, Ricky’s Café offers gourmet home meal take-out and a grab and go Panini-style sandwich bar.


The half-pound Mighty Mushroom Burger with sautéed mushrooms, double slices of Swiss cheese, mustard and mayo. Yum!

The mouth-watering ginger chicken bowl with grilled naan.


Fresh, fast and gourmet.
