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. I don’t get up to the north end of Winnipeg very often, but last Saturday was the installation service for the Right Rev. Geoff Woodcroft, the new bishop of our Diocese of Rupert’s Land. The installation was held at St. John’s Cathedral, which is located just off of Main Street. The service was…Continue readingModern Coffee – Inkster Boulevard

Baires Gelato & Cafe – Marion Street

Baires Gelato & Cafe is now closed. It’s place has been taken by Diaspora Cafe. I have made one visit to Diaspora, and hope to make a second one soon.  A few months ago as I was wandering down Marion Street, I noticed a sign for a new cafe opening in the bottom of a condo complex. I made note and a few weeks ago  I paid my first visit to Baires Gelato & Cafe. I wasn’t in the mood…Continue readingBaires Gelato & Cafe – Marion Street
