Food Scene
World-class, authentic French bakery. Their opening hours are unfortunately very brief (8:00AM to 1:00PM most days, closed Mondays and Tuesdays) and everything is baked fresh daily, so make sure you get there early to get a good selection of stuffed croissants.

Another world-class bakery, I'd say almost on par with Le Croissant. Worth checking out.

Excellent restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Dinner is a bit more of the "fine dining" variety, hence a bit more expensive than breakfasts and lunches, but the food is worth it. The location also boasts an excellent view of the Esplanade Riel Bridge and the Canadian Museum For Human Right.

If you are looking for a great restaurant of the "greasy spoon" variety, look no further. Their coffee is terrible but it adds to the charm. The food never disappoints. All-day breakfasts.

This restaurant is located inside the Franco-Manitoban cultural centre. It has a spacious outdoor patio, with live music, during afternoons and evenings, on select days.

This is a great place. If the lineup at Clementine is too long, just walk over to this place instead. It is a close contender with Clementine for it's quality brunches and lunches. They also smoke their own meat, which is absolutely delicious.

This place is a local institution. It's been there for more than 40 years, and hasn't changed one bit during this time. The menu is still the same as when I first started going here 15 years ago. They make some of the best rotis in town, and make sure you get an order of doubles too - so good! They also have an outdoor patio that is open during summer months, and hosts live music on weekends I believe.

This drive-in restaurant is another local institution, that has been there since the 1950s. If you're looking for a great burger and fries, old-school style, this is your place. I highly recommend the chili-burger in a bowl. The milkshakes are also excellent. The service is notoriously (and hilariously) bad however. Kind of reminds me of the "Soup Nazi" from that old Seinfeld episode. I suppose it adds to the character of the place.

Another good drive-in burger and fries joint. This has also been here for many years. Very similar to the Dairi-Wip but not as good in my opinion. Though some people prefer Mrs. Mikes. You can be the judge :)

Drinks & Nightlife
This bar is in the basement of an great Irish Pub (called The Toad) in the trendy Osborne Village neighborhood. They generally host decent live music. Especially on Tuesdays where you will usually find quite a happening party down there for "Soul Night" (soul music band, with horn section etc.). Lots of fun.

Shopping
If you are a tourist in Winnipeg, and you like "touristy" spots, The Forks is about as touristy as Winnipeg gets. It is quite a beautifully developed space, with shops, restaurants, historical guided tours, guided boat rides in the summer, and boasts the longest skating rink in the world in the winter. Skate and canoe rentals are available.
