Mottola Grocery is a grocery store for gourmets and gourmands, located in the Hargrave Street Market in downtown Winnipeg. They specialize in high quality, local and imported groceries. They also sell a good range of takeout sandwiches, salads, and baked goods.

Harrisons Coffeehouses, Coffee Roaster

Harrisons Coffeehouses and Coffee Roaster is a newish entry into the Winnipeg coffee scene. There are three locations in the city. One at The Forks, one on Waterfront Drive, and one at the Outlet Collection. My visits have all been to The Forks location. In addition to the three coffeehouses, they also have a roastery at The Forks. One thing that has changed for me during the pandemic, is how infrequently I get to The Forks. Typically I would be…Continue readingHarrisons Coffeehouses, Coffee Roaster

Bronuts, Exchange District

Bronuts taking part in an emerging trend.  One of the biggest trends in dining out is taking simple fare and, to use a popular Masterchef phrase, elevating it.
