Along busy boulevard Provencher, and just over the pedestrian bridge that connects Winnipeg with St. Boniface, is a delightful coffee shop called Café Postal.
It's small, en français of course (about ten percent of Winnipeg's 750,000 people speak French), and it serves Pilot Coffee. The beans are ground and weighed for every espresso drink.
Friendly and inviting, Café Postal gives off a gentle feel-good vibe. There's indoor or outdoor seating, which makes this is great spot to stop and regroup after visiting the Museum of Human Rights across the river. And after a visit to that place (the story of human rights is one of misery on a grand scale) a good strong coffee is just what you need.
The coffee is excellent.
