Santa Lucia Pizza – St. Mary’s Road

It’s been a few years since I last visited Santa Lucia, but yesterday I was looking for something close to St. Philip’s that would be quick. To my surprise, when I got there, the place was quite full even though it was only 5:45 pm. However, I was able to get a table in the lounge. Santa Lucia Dinner on the Run I had a meeting at church at 7 pm, and so I looked for something on the menu that…Continue readingSanta Lucia Pizza – St. Mary’s Road

The Fyxx – Espresso Bar

The Fyxx review: Winnipeg’s coffee scene has changed quite a bit over the last few years. However, it’s not that long ago that there wasn’t much beyond the chains when it came to coffee choices in the town. Late night coffee and dessert choices seemed to be limited mainly to Osborne Village and the odd place here and there. I remember when The Fyxx first opened on Broadway and Donald. It quickly became the place where groups gathered for a…Continue readingThe Fyxx – Espresso Bar

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

Pizza Hotline Vs Za Bistro

A couple of weeks ago, after publishing posts on Nuburger, and Harvey’s, Cory Boehm, a friend and fellow food lover, asked if I had tried either of the new downtown pizza restaurants, Za Bistro, and Pizza Hotline. He said he had been having a conversation with a couple of his friends, and that since both offered similarly priced build you won pizzas, they might make for a good comparison.As it turned out I had just made my first trip to…Continue readingPizza Hotline Vs Za Bistro

Juniors – Saint Marys Road

Here’s another one of those apostrophied restaurants, this time on an an apostrophied street. Juniors has three locations in Winnipeg, serving a classic burger and fries type menu along with some Greek specialties. I visited the location at St. Mary’s and Fermor. I made my first stop at Juniors, because I had been down at St. Mary Magdalene, one of the other Anglican Churches in town. We were planning a joint service for Maundy Thursday. I was busing it back…Continue readingJuniors – Saint Marys Road

Helios – Saint Mary’s Road

December 26, 2019 Update Christmas Day this year was one where there were no family events going on(we are dinner, etc., today). By the time I finish the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services, I’m not really up for preparing any food. I looked and noticed that Helios, a family Greek diner, not far from St. Philip’s is open on Christmas Day. So, after the building emptied out, I wandered down there for lunch. It was around quarter to two…Continue readingHelios – Saint Mary’s Road
