Those looking for a little bit of elegance and history with their meal should consider dinning at the Marlborough Hotel’s café or bar. The hotel was built back in 1914 in the very heart of Winnipeg and it still manages to capture all the charm and grace of that time period.
The restaurant, known as Joanna’s Café, serves up delicious meals in a beautiful setting. Delight at the Gothic architecture that features stained glass windows and ornate designs. The high rib vaulted ceilings, arches and decorated buttresses really add to the ambiance, as do the hanging Tiffany lamps. The atmosphere is simply charming and perfect for ladies’ brunch or a romantic couple’s dinner.
Those staying as overnight guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast from the café, but the café is also open to all diners who want to come in for a fine breakfast, lunch, or dinner. For breakfast, you can order stacks of hot cakes, eggs benedict, or their whipped cream crowned golden waffles. The dinner menu includes items such as herb crusted salmon, lasagna alforno, and rib eye steaks cooked just the way you like them.
The bar known as the Regal Beagle also exudes that air of high class. Dark wood paneling help give the place its feel of sophistication, as does the wood bar where one can pull up a seat and enjoy a cold drink. There are several pool tables and flat screens for game watching which help keep it trendy. If you want to dine on a little something with your brew they offer a full menu that includes the Regal burger, the Steak sandwich, or the steak and mushroom pie.
No matter if you love classic buildings, are a fan of Gothic architecture, or are just in need of a fine meal, dining at the Heritage building is sure to satisfy.
