Did someone say brunch? Pop by the patio at The Don Restaurant for strong coffee, umpteen bennies, hashes, Gloms Kuak (it’s fried cheese!), pancakes, burgers, perogies – and more! Or recharge at Stella’s at Plug In for simple, healthy and inspired offerings – including some of the best jam in town.

Visit with a couple of pals at the pub! Tavern United Bell MTS Place features a rooftop patio with views for days, and Elephant & Castle has a street-level patio that is sure to help you “Get Your Brit On”. In the mood for something different? Visit Browns Social House on Portage or Local Public Eatery on Garry for elevated neighbourhood pub experiences.

Downtown delivers on upscale dining adventures. Have you checked out Sunset Terrace & Bar at the Fort Garry Hotel? With some of the most stunning decor and the elegant dining options (they’re even open for weekend brunch!) in Winnipeg, this patio is sure to wow even the pickiest patio-goer. Capital Broadway’s dog-friendly patio offers elegant cocktails and elevated dishes that will make your tastebuds dance! The Keg on Garry Street does steak well (or rare, or medium…). They also offer a famous Caesar, surf & turf and vegetarian options to choose from. Earl’s on Main Street serves West Coast vibes with prairie charm. Their menu is a balance of fresh & healthy and stick-to-your-ribs comfort food. Check out their large vegan menu!

Discover dining options at downtown food halls. The patios at Hargrave Street Market and The Forks offer the chance to feast on different fares from all their food hall options. Burgers, tacos or pizza? Nah, try burgers, tacos and pizza!
