Heading to a new town for ultimate can be fun, but the most frustrating thing can be finding good restaurants to take your team! There’s nothing worst than having to browse through reviews of dive bars in the middle of nowhere, hoping to stumble across a gem. Lucky for us (and for you!), we asked a friend of ours for some suggestions and he replied with a gold mine. We figured it would be selfish to not share this information, so here is his email, filled to the brim with delicious suggestions. You’re welcome!
Hey! I would recommend visiting the West Broadway/Wolseley neighbourhood for sure. Sherbrook St between Wolseley Ave and Broadway has a bunch of good bars and restaurants. My friend and his brother own a place called Cousin's in that neighbourhood that is a good spot for beers and has veggie friendly food. The Tallest Poppy and Sherbrook Street Deli are good around there too. There's another place called Langside Grocery, on Langside St nearby that is supposed to be really good though I haven't been there yet. Thom Bargen is a good coffee place in the area.
If you go west along Westminster past Maryland you get into Wolseley, which has a few nice cafes and shops and is pedestrian friendly. There's a juice bar and a popular bakery.
There's a place called DeLuca's at Portage and Ruby in Wolseley that is a combo Italian wine store/grocery and has a great restaurant that's open for lunch every day but Sunday. One of my favourite spots in town.
Another popular place for drinks/dinner is Corydon Avenue. There are a bunch of patios and bars and restaurants. I'd recommend Saperavi for the Georgian food. There are a couple places with big patios and then a few places with small rooftop patios around there too that are kind of chill (Roost and Market Burger).
Sort of between the Corydon area and West Broadway are a few great places, Cafe Carlo on Lilac which has good food and drinks, and Close Co, the Grove and Maque around Grosvenor and Stafford.
The other area I'd recommend is the West Exchange, near Old Market Square. Deer and Almond is a good restaurant, Albert Street cocktails is decent and Parlour Coffee is good. I've heard really good things about Clementine for brunch as well Yellow Dog is a favourite bar of mine around there on Princess, sort of closer to downtown. There is a taproom called Little Brown Jug I like around there too. Across Main there's a place called Cibo that's good for drinks.
The Commons at the Forks is worth checking out for beer, wine and food too. There's also a really nice sit-down restaurant in there called Passero.
Another couple of good, random restaurants are Mercadito Latino (Salvadorean), Viva (Vietnamese) on Sargent, or Pho Kim Tuong on Ellice (Vietnamese), Vera Pizza on South Osborne, and BMC market for tacos, also on South Osborne. The Park Theatre on South Osborne has a bar and is a comedy/music venue worth checking out. Chaeban is an artisanal ice cream place on South Osborne that has vegan options.
Assiniboine Park is nice, and The Park Cafe is good for brunch--actually we had our wedding reception there. If you walk across the footbridge to Portage Ave from Assiniboine Park there's a good ice cream place and a few restaurants worth checking out.
