Garry Street Coffee, Human Bean Coffee + Tea

Downtown Winnipeg has recently seen the opening of two new coffee shops. Or to be more precise, one new coffee shop, and an old coffee shop that has relocated. The new shop is Garry Street Coffee, located at 333 Garry Street, and the relocated shop is Human Bean Coffee & Tea, which after leaving both The Forks, and the Millenium Library, has reopened in Cityplace, just across the street from the library. In some ways the two shops are quite…Continue readingGarry Street Coffee, Human Bean Coffee + Tea

Scout – Kid-Friendly Coffee Space

Coffee shops are great gathering places. They’re great for getting together for planning meetings, for small group idea sharing, or just for having some time to spent with a good friend or two. Unfortunately, most of them aren’t designed with children in mind. Scout Coffee + Tea on Portage Avenue has just changed all that. Now, let me start of by saying, that in my experience, places such as Fools and Horses, Thom Bargen, Parlour, Strong Badger, and others are…Continue readingScout – Kid-Friendly Coffee Space

Along the way I made a couple of visits to…Continue readingRed Lake Coffee Co Truck

It quickly became the place where groups gathered for a…Continue readingThe Fyxx – Espresso Bar

Daily Grind Coffee – Portage Avenue

In the years leading up to my ordination, part of my training consisted in doing placements in various parts of the city. One such placement was at St. Chad’s, at the time sharing space with Saint John XXIII on Portage Avenue at Rouge Road. During the several months that I was there, one of my favourite stops was The Daily Grind, coffee shop. At the time it was in a little strip mall, just northeast of St. Chad’s. Well, fast…Continue readingDaily Grind Coffee – Portage Avenue
