Joe Black Coffee Bar

Joe Black Coffee Bar, located on Portage Avenue, just across from the entrance to Assiniboine Park, is one of those places that I have visited several times over the years without ever reviewing. It’s right at a bus stop, and a place to get away from the crowds when park traffic is really busy. I’ve been trying to get out and review some more restaurants in the St. James neighbourhood, and so finally decided to visit with the intent to…Continue readingJoe Black Coffee Bar

Candle Light Indian Restaurant – Sargent

This restaurant has changed it’s name, it is no longer Candle Light, but Suba’s Cuisine. Although it advertises itself as Sri Lankan and South Indian cuisine, it also has a couple of fast food options listed on it’s window. I have not had a chance to try the new place out. One thing I have noticed is that the restaurant always seems to be empty no matter what time I walk by. Hopefully this new option will work out.  Since…Continue readingCandle Light Indian Restaurant – Sargent

Carbone Coal Fired Pizza – Downtown

Carbone for Pizza. Carbone has closed their downtown location. While downtown Winnipeg is changing and there are many new buildings and new restaurants popping up, it’s still a bit of a desert around lunch time on Saturday’s.

Carbone Cafe Club Hours Monday – Thursday | 11am – 10pmFriday | 11am – 12amSaturday…Continue readingCarbone Coal Fired Pizza – Downtown

Greenish Cafe – Downtown Skywalk System

The rainy weather over the last few weeks has forced me inside more on the occasions that I am out walking. When I’m downtown this means traveling through the Skywalk system. Roughly halfway between Cityplace and Portage Place, lies Greenish Cafe, a Sushi and Salad place. There has been a sushi restaurant there for quite a few years, but I’ve never really been tempted to go in. However, over the last few months there has been a renovating of the space,…Continue readingGreenish Cafe – Downtown Skywalk System

Georges Burgers-Submarines, McPhillips

Today’s review has a bit of a connection to my past. One of my former places of employment was Watt Street Foods on the corner of Watt and Kimberley. Over the years we provided the hamburger meat for several Georges Burgers and Submarines, including the one on McPhllip’s. Recently I found myself traveling up McPhillip’s on a couple of occasions and decided to stop in and give George’s a try. Located in a strip mall, the restaurant is long and…Continue readingGeorges Burgers-Submarines, McPhillips

Doner Delight from Iggy’s

Yesterday, I was wandering through downtown after meeting up for a quick coffee with a friend or two at Second Cup.  As I was approaching the Law Courts building I saw what appeared to be another new food truck.  I went over, and sure enough, it was.  This one is called Iggy’s Family Doner. (I realize there’s an umlaut, but it doesn’t translate well to the blog post).Given that there was only one person in front of me, I thought…Continue readingDoner Delight from Iggy’s
