Cottage Bakery & Cafe – Pembina Highway

Every so often I run across a place, and wonder to myself, how did I miss this place for so long. Cottage Bakery on Pembina Highway is one such place. I lived just off Pembina and McGillivray for the best part of nine years. I was about four blocks from Cottage Bakery and yet somehow …

High Tea Bakery – Portage Avenue

High Tea Bakery, located out on Portage Avenue by Deer Lodge Centre, is one of those places whose product I have tasted on a few occasions, but I’ve never visited the location itself. The most surprising part of that, is that High Tea was for it’s first few years located in the building that now …

Hildegard’s Bakery Will Have you Bingi(e)n’

For the last two or three years I’ve been having people ask me if I was familiar with the pizza nights put on by Integrity Foods. Only by people talking about them (one thing about not driving, rural events are mainly missed).

Crusty Bun Bakery Goodness

I’ve heard about The Crusty Bun on St. Mary’s road several times over the last few years. The reviews from friends have always been positive. Despite it’s being located just down the Street from St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church, I’ve never been in. That’s mainly because my visits to SMM generally occur after The Crusty …

Tall Grass Prairie (Forks)

Tall Grass Prairie Bakery started off in the Wolseley neighbourhood of Winnipeg. It’s a place I had long been aware of, but didn’t really visit often, until I started to be involved at St. Margaret’s Anglican Church. Many of the members there are long-term, loyal customers. It was only recently that I learned part of …

Cocoabeans Butter Tart

Since I wrote this post, Cocoabeans closed it’s Tache location and reopened in a new location on Corydon Avenue. The new location is a full restaurant and has a patio out front where you can enjoy your beverages and people watch. Sadly, the buttertart that was my staple has been replaced on the menu with …
