Blackbird Brasserie – Tache & Marion

We have a 4 pm service at St. Philip’s, and every second week we alternate between following it with a meal, or coffee and a snack. Yesterday was a coffee and snack day, and afterward a group of us went down for a meal at Blackbrid Brasserie. This was my first visit to the restaurant since I reviewed, although I do pick up their sandwiches from the Canteen which is the coffee shop attached to the restaurant. Given that the…Continue readingBlackbird Brasserie – Tache & Marion

Frenchway Cafe – Lilac Street

The Frenchway Cafe is one of those places that gets talked about a lot, but somehow or other I never get around to writing up. About 15 months ago I paid a visit to interview Larissa Webster, the owner, as part of a post I wrote about a fundraiser called Stone Soup Luncheon. We ended up talking more about the French approach to food than we did about the event itself.This made for an interesting conversation. It was made clear,…Continue readingFrenchway Cafe – Lilac Street

March Reading Roundup

I’ve been doing a fair bit of reading during the month of March. Much of it revolves around food, but there are books of theology and detective fiction.

I still intend on doing some of the longer posts such as finishing of the trilogy of posts that I…Continue readingMarch Reading Roundup

Rodos Greek-French Eatery

Rodos Review I find my schedule takes me in and through downtown on a regular basis. This means I can often make short detours on my trips to visit various restaurants in the area. The last couple of weeks I took the time and paid a couple of visits to Rodo’s French and Greek Eatery In Winnipeg Square. Winnipeg Square is one of those places that is slightly off my track, but doesn’t add to much time to my trips.…Continue readingRodos Greek-French Eatery

Le Croissant-Taché Avenue

It’s been five years since I started working in the St. Boniface area. Le Croissant was one of the first places I reviewed after moving in. I stop by every few weeks or so. I could stop by even more frequently but neither my waistline nor my wallet would appreciate that. On change in my life since I first visited, is that I have spent a lot of time reading about France and French food. Whether this be in the…Continue readingLe Croissant-Taché Avenue
