Lake of the Woods Brewing Co 242 Hargrave St

Lake of the Woods Brewing Co, on the main floor of the Hargrave Street Market is one of those places that has become a bit of a hangout for me. While I’m always on the lookout for new, and different spots to eat and drink, I always appreciate a place that can become a second home. When I look for a place that I will want to visit regularly there are two things that I look for. The first is…Continue readingLake of the Woods Brewing Co 242 Hargrave St

Gaberniks – Winnipeg Square

It’s time for another revisit post, and this time around it’s Gaberniks in Winnipeg Square. My original post was in 2015, so seven years later seems like a good time for an update. I noticed, when reading through my original review, found below, that I hadn’t really said much about the café itself.

OEB Breakfast Co 300 Main

OEB Breakfast Co is a Canadian chain of breakfast/brunch restaurants. Originating in Calgary they have spread mainly across Western Canada. With a Toronto location and a couple south of the border.

I’ve made several visits…Continue readingOEB Breakfast Co 300 Main

Jennifer’s Restaurant 7 Sisters, MB

Last month I paid a visit to Jennifer’s Restaurant in Seven Sisters. This was an unusual visit, in that it is only the second time in just about 10 years, that I have dined outside of Winnipeg. By that, I mean places that I couldn’t reach by Winnipeg Transit. The occasion for the visit to Jennifer’s Restaurant was our annual clergy conference. We were meeting at Wilderness Edge Conference Centre in Pinawa.  Jennifer’s Restaurant for Supper  If you are familiar…Continue readingJennifer’s Restaurant 7 Sisters, MB

Stoneworks Bistro 360 Main Street

Stoneworks Bistro is a new restaurant opened up in the Shops of Winnipeg Square. It’s located in the spot that once belonged to Pizza Hotline. Stoneworks Bistro offers a variety of soups, sandwiches, a daily special, and some sweet treats. I first heard about Stoneworks Bistro from Brian Gilchrist. I got to know Brian when I was a ministry student at St. Paul Fort-Garry Anglican Church. Like most people I know, I haven’t seen Brian for several years. We do…Continue readingStoneworks Bistro 360 Main Street
