Kildonan Park café to open earlier

  • Print

The City of Winnipeg has approved extended operating hours for a new café slated to open in Peguis Pavilion at Kildonan Park later this summer.

On Wed., May 15, city council’s executive policy committee approved a 10-year lease of the pavilion to WOW! Hospitality, which is planning to open a daytime café and evening restaurant at the pavilion, which has been without an occupant since late 2008, in early August.

The café was slated to open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Sunday, but will now operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. between July and September to test the market for early hour business.

Old Kildonan Coun. Devi Sharma pushed for the changes.

The café will operate Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. between October and June.

The restaurant will operate year-round Tuesday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sundays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

WOW is planning a daytime café with about 30 seats serving wood-fired pizza, couscous salad, wraps, pitas, house-cured corned beef with homemade mustard, along with coffee, ice cream and other snacks.

The 70-seat restaurant will be upscale fine dining, with Lake Winnipeg pickerel, steamed mussels, crispy sweet pork belly, and Arctic char as a handful of items of being planned for its menu.

As part of the lease agreement, the restaurant and café may close for up to 90 days per year.

The lease will head to city council for approval Wed., May 29.
