Today was exploring day in Winnipeg. To start off the day we were introduced to Stella’s Cafe for brunch. This restaurant has several locations in Winnipeg and I can understand why! Great food and service makes this a popular place for a meal no matter what time or night.
Stella’s offers breakfast all day, quality fresh baked goods and an extensive menu of burgers, salads, and soups. We were told they make the best cinnamon buns in the city. Their service is also very friendly.
I ended up ordering the banana and blueberries French toast, a brioche cinnamon French toast glazed in heated maple syrup. I also ordered a cinnamon bun on the side. I found my French toast quite sweet. The cinnamon was on the hard side so I saved it to take home and heat up.
My bf ordered the ham and mushroom omelette, which came with sourdough toast and a fruit cup. It was a really well prepared omelette, and I loved that it was not too salty. The ham and mushrooms were both really tasty.
After brunch we went for a walk in Assiniboine Park, where it houses the bear and soldier statue of Winnie the bear that inspired the character Winnie the Pooh. There’s also a butterfly garden and zoo there but we didn’t go.
We then made our way to The Forks, Winnipeg’s version of Granville Island. The new Canadian Museum of Human Rights is in is finishing touches there as well. We peeked into the shops and walked along the river a bit.
In the evening my bf had a gig at the Pyramid Cabaret, a popular venue for bands and musicians. It was a late night but we managed to squeeze in some good eats, sights and visit with family. We look forward to heading on our US leg of this trip starting tomorrow. Minneapolis here we come!
