Café Postal

There’s a new cafe in Winnipeg that’s shaping up to be real nice place.  Café Postal opened yesterday in St. Boniface, giving everyone one more reason to experience the already wonderful group businesses and eateries that already exist there.  Along with the eclectic restaurants and vibrant little music venues is a great place to get good coffee.

Not a lot of standing or sitting room, just a few seats by the window, so don’t bring your laptop and expect to hangout with all your friends there all night over a few fraps.  It’s not ‘that kind’ of cafe. But a great view of the beautiful St. Boniface ‘downtown’, and really, really nice countertops all around.  If I was more of a carpenter than I am I would tell you what kind of wood and all, but I’m not, so maybe just ask.  You can see more photos from the inside of the beautiful space here.

On opening day they were brewing beans from Te Aro.  I’ve never had the chance to actually try anything from Te Aro before so this was a first for me, and unfortunately I didn’t catch which blend it was that they were serving as Te Aro has both the Big Bro and Elevens as regular options.  Whichever option it was it was great blend, not too risky or anything but a good solid espresso.

I’m kicking myself a little that I didn’t just get the straight shot, but I’ll be back soon enough.  They will be stocking other options from Te Aro each week to start, so when that first shipment arrives I’ll stop by to pick up a bag or two.  I’m hoping that the El Salvadorian Nejapa Los Vientos will be available, the description sounds quite nice, I’m sure it will taste just the same.
