Bonnie Day – 868 Westminster Avenue

Bonnie Day is located in the Wolseley neighbourhood of Winnipeg. It sits in a spot that has gone through a couple of changes in the last few years. Most recently it was known as Ruby West, I don’t know if it’s the same owners, but the billing program still uses the Ruby West name. Bonnie Day falls into the treat category of restaurant. Before that it was home to the Neighbourhood Bookstore and Café. I wrote about the Neighbourhood Bookstore…Continue readingBonnie Day – 868 Westminster Avenue

Verde Juice Bar – Westminster Avenue

Verde Juice Bar is one of two new places on Westminster Avenue. I ended up there on my first visit, because Joy’s Tea which is next door was closed. The decor at Verde is the same as many of the newer restaurants opening. Lot’s of light wood, and wooden type sign boards and menu. Pleasant enough, but after awhile there seem little to distinguish one place from the next as far as appearance goes. Verde Juice Bar for Beverages My…Continue readingVerde Juice Bar – Westminster Avenue

Sherbrook Street Delicatessen

Sherbrook Street Delicatessen is now closed. It’s place has been taken by Banza Noodle & Tea House. I’m thinking of starting a new category of post here on Dining with Donald.

Plus Clay Oven(Fresh Cafe) is soon to be opening in the Hydro Building downtown.Like Palm Tree, Sherbrook Street Delicatessen is…Continue readingSherbrook Street Delicatessen

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

Tallest Poppy, Sherbrook Street

For several years, The Tallest Poppy bloomed on North Main. A popular breakfast and lunch spot under the ownership of Talia Syrie, the original location was closed when Ms. Syrie took the opportunity to help start up Come ‘N Eat Cafe at the Neechi Commons. Having seen that enterprise successfully get on it’s feet, she decided to return to operating her own restaurant.It’s been a few years since I wrote this review. Although I’ve gone a couple of times in…Continue readingTallest Poppy, Sherbrook Street

Thom Bargen Coffee – Tea

Thom Bargen is another place where I have done shorter reviews on multiple locations. Again, I’m going to combine them into one to make them more google-worthy. In addition to putting the reviews together, I’ve also included my thoughts from when I attended a lecture at St. Margaret’s, given by co-owner TJ Hiebert, on the subject of coffee culture. Graham Avenue Underground Downtown Coffee CultureWinnipeg has seen the blossoming of several, small, boutique, coffee houses in the last two or three…Continue readingThom Bargen Coffee – Tea
