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 never managed to visit. In the end, my first visit came about 15 years after I left the area, because I needed change for the…Continue readingCottage Bakery & Cafe – Pembina Highway

Modern Coffee – Inkster Boulevard

I’ve been seeing posts on Facebook about Modern Coffee for the last few weeks. The place looked and sounded to be quite an interesting new coffee choice.

There are lots of windows that give lots of…Continue readingSan Vito Coffee – Silver Heights Shopping Centre

Joe Black Coffee Bar

Joe Black Coffee Bar, located on Portage Avenue, just across from the entrance to Assiniboine Park, is one of those places that I have visited several times over the years without ever reviewing. It’s right at a bus stop, and a place to get away from the crowds when park traffic is really busy. I’ve been trying to get out and review some more restaurants in the St. James neighbourhood, and so finally decided to visit with the intent to…Continue readingJoe Black Coffee Bar

Pastry Castle – Edmonton Street

A couple of months ago, I was walking down Edmonton Street, and noticed that the storefront next door to the Magic Room had brown paper up on the windows and that there writing suggesting that the Pastry Castle would be opening soon. After I posted a picture of this, I discovered that it was a new location for the cafe, as it had originally existed in St. Vital.I’ve visited a few times since I wrote this review. I noticed the…Continue readingPastry Castle – Edmonton Street
