OEB Breakfast Co 300 Main

OEB Breakfast Co is a Canadian chain of breakfast/brunch restaurants. Originating in Calgary they have spread mainly across Western Canada. With a Toronto location and a couple south of the border. When I first heard that OEB was going to be part of 300 Main, I was somewhat skeptical. I figured we might be getting something along the lines of Mercatino, which I felt was more about style than substance. Fortunately, OEB really delivers the goods. I’ve made several visits…Continue readingOEB Breakfast Co 300 Main

Chiu’s Restaurant – Tache Avenue

Chiu’s restaurant is a Chinese-Canadian restaurant located in the Family Medical Centre, just across Tache Avenue from St. Boniface Hospital. I first visited around five years ago, around the same time as I tried Pastrami & Things. At the time Chiu’s was going through some changes. I can’t remember if it was new owners, new chefs, or something else. However I wasn’t particularly impressed with it. Chiu’s Buffet A few years have passed and I decided to give the restaurant…Continue readingChiu’s Restaurant – Tache Avenue

Ludas Deli – North End Treasure

Over the last few months, I’ve been trying to visit different neighbourhoods in Winnipeg. When I was checking out North End restaurants, Ludas Deli* was one that got my attention. I had been there several years ago. My friend Travis Unger had worked as the wilderness camp coordinator for Inner City Youth Alive, a Evangelical Mennonite ministry. Inner City Youth Alive is located just across Salter from Luda’s. It’s also home to St. Aidan’s Christian School, which I’ve written about…Continue readingLudas Deli – North End Treasure

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

Graham Avenue Chili Hits Spot

For years Twist Cafe on Graham Avenue was my favourite haunt. So much so, that Soups,Sandwiches & More was totally neglected. Or almost so. They did cater a couple of events I attended, but I never got a good idea of what they served. As of last year, Fools and Horses is my new favourite place. So, I don’t go down Graham Avenue as much as I used to. However, the other day I was in the area, and thought…Continue readingGraham Avenue Chili Hits Spot

Nook Diner-Sherbrook Street

Friday night, I finished the Winnipeg Harvest Poverty Pledge. Saturday morning I was in the mood for a good old-fashioned breakfast. Bacon, eggs, potatoes, and toast. Many of the staff at St. Margaret’s, one of the parishes where I work, regularly visit The Nook Diner on the corner of Sherbrook and Wolseley. I figured I’d give it a try. I went fairly early in the day, hoping that it wouldn’t be too crowded. It wasn’t and I was able to…Continue readingNook Diner-Sherbrook Street
