I visited the White Star Diner on a trip to visit my girlfriend and her family this past February out in Manitoba. If you want to know what it is to truly be cold, I suggest this area in the winter.
It was the morning of Valentines day and we were out tromping through the snow filled streets, seeing the sights. Winnipeg is a very interesting city and has a ton of sights, even in conditions that would bring other cities to a screeching halt. What better meal for a romantic Valentines breakfast than a stop in at the White Star? None, I would say. I had a pulled pork sandwich topped with bacon, and a side of Poutine. Anna had a grilled cheese and a chocolate milkshake. Walking around all day outside in that kind of weather, it’s just the thing that hits the spot.
It’s a great old fashioned type of place, in an infill site, with ghost signs behind. Inside, it has a window counter and an open kitchen.
The White Star Diner is located at:
58 Albert St Winnipeg, MB R3B 1N6, Canada
I used to work in a building nearby and still do on occasion and the White Star ,wonderful food!
But Winterpeg is like that .BTW you chose one worst winters on record to visit.
Oops next time I will edit a wee bit more. What I meant to say was that I used to visit a couple of times a week (much to the dismay of my waistline.)Winnipeg is full of little places like that but I’m afraid they are disappearing all too rapidly .
