Stellas Sherbrooke

July15

Stella’s has become an institution in Winnipeg, thanks to its well executed authentic fare and cheerful service. I haven’t managed to get to Stella’s multiple locations. I am content to stick to the locale that I know the best. Unfortunately, the Sherbrooke St. had to be rebuilt after a fire but the newly opened location is even nicer than the former with light flooding into a south bank of windows.

I was meeting a foodie friend from Toronto who was in town for the recent Dietician conference. I wanted to take her to a place unique to Winnipeg. Her eyes immediately fell upon the Mexican breakfast and I know many people including my own daughter-in-law who think that it is one of the best breakfasts in town.

The tasty meal is certainly great value with a perfectly prepared sunny side up egg resting on top of soft corn tortillas and topped with tomato, green onion and grated cheddar cheese. Huge scoops of salsa and guacamole share the plate with premise made hashbrowns and a sparkling cilantro sauce.

I immediately knew that I wanted one of Stella’s famous cinnamon buns, intending to share it with my guest.

As a result I chose a lighter breakfast of scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese with rice, refried beans and salsa. The dish was jammed with flavour and very satisfying. Turned out that my guest was chock full and couldn’t finish her breakfast. As a result, it was my responsibility to eat that cinnamon bun all by myself. Luckily, I had more than enough room for the decadent treat: iced, buttered and grilled! Gooey and “cinamonny”, Stella’s cinnamon buns are amongst the cities’ best. Where do you buy your favourite?
