You don’t need to travel far to feel like you’re grabbing breakfast in a quaint Parisian café. Joanna’s Café is truly a gem in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown Winnipeg!
Breakfast at Joanna’s is just as classic and indulgent as you’d expect from a hotel restaurant (it’s attached to the Marlborough Hotel)! Each choice on the menu is delicious, whether you’re stopping in for a quick cup of joe and a cinnamon bun or looking for a new place to indulge on a Sunday morning. When it comes to breakfast, I like to keep it traditional—which is why Joanna’s Café and I just work. They stay true to the classics, but always include a little twist.

A downside of Joanna’s Café is that it’s hard to chew your food with all that jaw-dropping architecture surrounding you! The architecture is as mouth-watering as the food in front of you. If you are like me and enjoy the occasional solo meal out, Joanna’s is the perfect spot for a little alone time. You can feast your eyes on the gorgeous stained–glass windows, which let natural light filter in, or study the beautiful oak beams and wrought-iron chandeliers.
For the visual artists among us, Joanna’s is the perfect spot to Instagram your coffee before you sip.
Joanna’s staff rarely makes a false step. Even at breakfast, when the restaurant is packed with hotel guests and the after-church crowd, you’re always made to feel like a guest rather than a customer. For service like this, you’d expect to pay a lot more—but two can dine at Joanna’s for under $30!
What Are You Waiting For?
I don’t know if it’s the most important meal of the day, but breakfast at Joanna’s is definitely the most stylish. Whether I’m meeting friends, recovering after a night out, or holding my next team meeting, you can count on me to suggest, “Let’s go to Joanna’s.”
