Parlour Coffee Main Street North

I originally wrote this post about Parlour Coffee about a year and a half ago.  I wrote it for bubsblurbs, my other, no longer extant, blog, but thought that it belonged here.  Obviously some of the things in the post have changed, but the coffee from Parlour is still every bit as excellent. One of the joys of working smack dab in the middle of downtown Winnipeg at place like Holy Trinity, is the number of places one can get to…Continue readingParlour Coffee Main Street North

J. T. Spring Roll – Food Truck Emeritus

J. T. Spring Roll began my love for food trucks. I went to the St. Norbert Farmers Market today.  I try and get out there every once in awhile.  I started my day off with breakfast at Stella’s, and then grabbed a bus out to the farmers market. I like to go out and visit the Bread Lady, and the presence of the Green Bean Coffee Tent makes for another must stop place at the Market.While I was there, I…Continue readingJ. T.

Kokeb, Fine Ethiopian Food Edmonton Street

Stopped in to Kokeb for the first time in quite a while the other night. I figured I might watch a bit of the Jets game while enjoying an early evening supper. While I enjoy walking along Broadway and sampling the varieties of food that the trucks have to offer, when the weather produces the kind of temperatures and humidity that were on display yesterday, it’s nice to have an air-conditioned place to pop into to enjoy my lunch.  Kokeb,…Continue readingKokeb, Fine Ethiopian Food Edmonton Street

Stella’s: From Breakfast to Late Night Treats

In a little under a decade and a half, Stella’s Cafe and Bakery has gone from a trendy little cafe in Osborne Village to a powerhouse on the Winnipeg restaurant scene.  The formula has been simple.  Great, fresh food, with an emphasis on healthy options(fortunately they haven’t let the healthy bit ruin their desserts).  Along with that they place a high value on good service. Despite all this, Stella’s hasn’t been all that high on my list of places to dine…Continue readingStella’s: From Breakfast to Late Night Treats

Snakes on a Plate

Snakes on a plate comes from keeping an eye on neighbourhood restaurants. A few months ago, while strolling down Portage Avenue, I saw on the corner of Portage and Lipton, a new little restaurant by the name of Café Ce Soir.   I made note of it, with the intention of visiting one day.  As is often the case with new restaurants, I looked to discover what their internet presence was, and started following their Facebook page. While scrolling through…Continue readingSnakes on a Plate

Pop Up Brunch

Raw:Almond has become a big hit on the Winnipeg winter dining scene. I’ve gone to three of the brunches and one of the dinners and I’ve gathered them all together here. The pop up brunches have been the best part.  Much has been made over the Raw:Almond pop-up restaurant.  The Winnipeg Free Press has covered it a couple of times, the link is to the second of these articles.   You can also find out about it on the local CBC…Continue readingPop Up Brunch
