Strong Badger Coffeehouse

Earlier this week a friend of mine posted on Facebook that he had gone on vacation and come back to a new coffee shop at the end of the street. I looked at the picture and saw the name Strong Badger. I knew I needed to visit as soon as possible. I first encountered Brock the owner of The Strong Badger Coffeehouse when I covered the Outdoor Community Cafe at Knox United. He was serving iced coffee at the time and…Continue readingStrong Badger Coffeehouse

Forth Coffee – Dogwood Roaster

There’s a lot of buzz around the coffee scene in Winnipeg, and it’s not all caused by excess caffeine. Thom Bargen is soon to be part of a new space on Graham Avenue. Twist Cafe has new owners, and Nils Vik of Parlour and his partners are working with Dogwood Coffee to bring small batch roasting to the city. They are sharing space with Forth Coffee, a new coffee house/restaurant in the Exchange. The cafe at Forth is managed by Renee Girard,…Continue readingForth Coffee – Dogwood Roaster
