The temperatures are dropping and that calls for a warm and cozy drink. Discover the best cafes in Winnipeg! They're the perfect places to get comfortable and stay awhile when the weather outside is dreary, or to grab a take away drink to enjoy elsewhere.

Parlour Coffee


Parlour Coffee (468 Main Street) is a cozy cafe trimmed in natural wood that happens to be one of the absolute best spots for coffee in town. It's located in Winnipeg's Exchange District and specializes in high quality specialty coffee. They serve and sell ethically sourced and seasonal coffee from micro coffee roasters including Dogwood, Bows and Arrows, and Quietly Coffee. However you like it, they can make it -- drip, pour over, espresso, Americano, Gibraltar, cappuccino, latte, mocha. Non-dairy milk is available for vegans and lactose-intolerant folks (almond, soy, oat). Bulk up your order with a delightful Cardamom Bun or a Midsommer Cookie.

Folio Cafe


Folii Cafe (2299 Grant Ave.) is a delightful, high-ceiling cafe that is only open on weekdays. They serve excellent coffee standards like cappuccinos and lattes, small bites and gelato. They are located on Canadian Mennonite University's campus, making them a great sport for students and faculty. If you have a sweet tooth, they stock delicious donuts from Oh Doughnuts. They're also a great spot for lunch -- enjoy a panini sandwich, soup and/or salad! In the warmer months, indulge in their gelato offerings.


The FrenchWay Cafe and Bakery

Looking for an authentic French café and bakery experience in Winnipeg? Look no further than The FrenchWay Cafe and Bakery (238 Lilac Street)! Located in Corydon Village, The FrenchWay Cafe is a delightful place for meals, fresh baked goods and exquisite pastries. They also offer locally roasted coffee, organic teas, and use local ingredients. You can even dine here if you are vegan or gluten-free! Stop by for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dessert to indulge in things like omelettes, crepes, hearty sandwiches, macarons and flaky croissants. You'll feel like you're in Paris!

Café Postal


Café Postal (202 Provencher Blvd) is a small but mighty coffee shop located in the heart of Saint Boniface in Winnipeg. However you take your coffee, they dish it out -- even blue lattes! Be sure to try their delicious baked goods, like croissants and cinnamon rolls, as well. If you like their coffee, as many patrons do, be sure to grab some coffee beans to take home!


We hope that these Winnipeg cafes keep you nice and cozy this fall and maybe even make it into your weekly routine! They're so good!
