Clementine Cafe – Exchange District

Over the last few days I’ve been blogging primarily about the Fringe Festival. Being in the Exchange for the Fringe, I’ve done a bit of dining in the area. One of the places I’ve visited is Clementine Cafe. Clementine is located on Princess Avenue, and it’s just a couple of blocks from Old Market Square, the heart of Fringe Country. The cafe itself is in the basement of the building. Despite this, the cafe space is quite bright, and well…Continue readingClementine Cafe – Exchange District

Vicky’s Diner – Albert Street

Not long ago I reviewed the new location of the White Star Diner. I noticed that the old Albert Street location had been filled by a new restaurant signed as Vicky’s. Vicky’s is now closed and has been replaced by Daanook Syrian Restaurant.  I heard that it was a new burger type joint, but let it pass. Now, with Fringe Fest starting tomorrow, I thought it would be a good time to check it out in advance of the festival.On…Continue readingVicky’s Diner – Albert Street

White Star Diner – Kennedy Street

For many years the White Star Diner was a mainstay of Winnipeg’s Exchange District. The diner was a little hole in the wall on Albert Street. It was mainly a takeout joint, with a limited number of seats. I had only been on one occasion and that hadn’t been enough to convince me to go back. I wrote this update for the White Star Diner on April 24, 2019. As always, new material is in bold. A few months ago, I…Continue readingWhite Star Diner – Kennedy Street

Tom Yum Thai – Sherbrook Street

Tom Yum Thai is one of those restaurants I’ve often passed, but never entered. As a bus rider, I find that getting to North of Portage, from where I live in the West End, back to North of Portage on Main is often as a trip, as convoluted as this sentence. As a result, I generally walk when I go to such places as Stephanchew’s Church Goods, or to visit the Exchange District.Being on the corner of Sherbrook and William,…Continue readingTom Yum Thai – Sherbrook Street

Noodle Express – Dim Sum

A couple of weeks ago we had our most recent Why Cook Wednesday supper club dinner. We decided on Dim Sum at Noodle Express in Chinatown. I have to admit that this is a restaurant that I haven’t thought much about despite having popped in during past Fringe Festivals. I’ve also tended to shy away form Dim Sum, thinking it on the expensive side. I do though, enjoy the variety. I found out, after arriving that Noodle Express has a…Continue readingNoodle Express – Dim Sum

Across the Board Game Cafe

Since I originally wrote about Across the Board, they have changed location. They are now located on Main Street on the first floor of the McKim Building. I have been since the move, and I find the food and service to be every bit as good as it was in the original location. I’m interrupting my Fringe reviews to post a restaurant one. Although, it does have a Fringe connection. Across the Board Game Cafe is a new restaurant located just…Continue readingAcross the Board Game Cafe
