The multiculturalism in the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba make it one of the best places in the Canada to eat and enjoy foods from around the globe. It doesn’t matter what your personal tastes are, there is a restaurant, cafe, or bistro with an atmosphere and price range you will love. Here are three top spots to eat in Winnipeg to include in your next Manitoba travel plans. (In no particular order, you just simply have go there! You’ll be addicted!)

1. Stella’s Cafe and Bakery

Anyone in the city looking to enjoy a quiet lunch, relax with a book, or spend breakfast with a loved one has to try Stella’s Cafe and Bakery. That is what this place is known for – desserts, breakfasts, and lunches. Found on both Kenaston and Osborne, the desserts are all made right there. The meals look fantastic and taste even better than they look. Portions are not too small and not too big and the prices are really quite reasonable. Inexpensive when you consider the care and effort put into each menu item. The service is efficient and knowledgeable while still creating the comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Be warned, however, both locations can get extremely busy!

2. Amici Restaurant and Bombolini Wine Bar

If you want to dine like a rock star, the Italian restaurant Amici’s on Broadway is sure to please — even Mick Jagger was impressed. This place is even a member of Canada’s Top 40. This is not the typical family restaurant. Fine dining combines with an elite ambiance for a high-class and romantic evening meal. Some of Canada’s top chefs carefully scrutinize every fine detail of the meal and the service is the finest in the city. You and your guests will truly be treated like royalty. The pastry chefs are not to be left out of the equation either. Good thing the meal is delicious. Otherwise, it would be difficult to concentrate with the dessert cart going by. You will definitely pay for your meal, but it is worth every succulent morsel. For a more affordable alternative, Bombolini’s is right there and it is run by the same kitchen.

3. Muddy Waters Smokehouse BBQ and Blues

Western Canadian cuisine is the feature of this unforgettable steakhouse. Not far from The Forks and other popular Winnipeg attractions, Muddy Waters has the best ribs you will ever taste in your entire life. This is a place of fun, partying and great food albeit a little unusual. When you order the ribs, the entire thing comes with a galvanized pail. Now you’re asking why…For the bones! This is definitely not a suit and tie affair. You might want to consider a bib though. There are two large patios at Muddy Waters so you can enjoy looking at the historic Forks historical site while you enjoy your meal. The food is reasonably priced and the service is excellent.

These are just a few of the great places to eat in Winnipeg. For more information, visit World 66 and enjoy your trip!

Just because gas prices are rocketing doesn’t mean you have to turn your romantic getaway or honeymoon into a staycation. Manitoba has some fantastic spots to get an unforgettable vacation at prices you can handle. Budget vacations means thinking outside the box and a taste for trying new things!

Northern Manitoba – “Bluesky Bed & Sled”

Dog sledding anyone? Believe it or not, this remarkable vacation is affordable for even the tightest of budgets. Once you arrive at the fantastic bed and breakfast you will immediately fall in love with the local area. The quaint B&B is beautifully decorated giving you the feel of luxury and comfort in one space. You almost seem to travel back in time as you open the door.

Once you have settled in, a tour of the area is a great place to get started. The B&B work in conjunction with Bluesky Expedition gives you the perfect opportunity to see and learn about this amazing ecosystem. The sledding tours are led by Manitoba native and resident expert Gerald Azure and his amazing four-legged friends. Best of all, there are opportunities for guests to see the area and get to know the team all year round. Definitely worth the trip!

City Vacation – Bob and Margret’s Place

If it sounds like you are stopping in to stay with a friend, you are exactly right. Located next to the river, this stunning and historic house is a home away from home. You get the benefits of living in your own home with the added benefits of staying in a hotel at reasonable rates! From here, you can spend afternoon sightseeing at the many local attractions and beautiful scenes in historic Winnipeg. The city often hosts a variety of events and festivals all year round, so it is always a good idea to check around. The B&B is the perfect opportunity to take a lunch for a picnic. Head down to the river or to the nearby Vimy Ridge Memorial Park or Munson Park across the river.

Winnipeg has some great places to see during you stay. With a donation, the Grant’s Old Mill is a great opportunity to see a real working mill from the 1800s. The Living Prairie Museum and the Manitoba Crafts Museum are fantastic as well. The Manitoba Museum, the Children’s Museum, and the Forks National Historic Site do charge an admission, but it is definitely worth the small charge.

These are just two great romantic honeymoon vacations available in Manitoba. When you are looking to travel to the area, keep your eye out for deals. Many places like the Manitoba Tourism website has many great deals. You can get passes that get you into the best of Winnipeg’s sites or deals on accommodations and adventures for Churchill and the rest of Manitoba. Whether you would like to see polar bears or city sites, you are sure to find it here at a price you can afford!
