          Occasionally, so much is going on in a growing city that even the down-to-earth local restaurant makes me want to relocate! The cafe/diner on the foot bridge in the middle of Downtown Winnipeg is one of these — It has become a tourist attraction all to itself, because it’s on a bridge and overlooks an archeological site, a zoo, and a park. Founded in the Great Depression, it preserves old style cafe home cooking and a Rock and Roll Era decor and feel that blue-collar neighborhoods have always loved. In fact, people from all social strata get a kick out of it. 

In the heart of the Downtown historic and business district, patrons can see all sorts of neighborhoods from the bridge, including one of the longest outdoor skating rinks in the world. 

Cafe on the Bridge, Route 57, Winnipeg

The company that owns this diner/cafe on the bridge is Salisbury House/SALS, employing at least 560 people in two dozen units and a Central Commissary that designs new dishes and meals.  SALS  has been a healthy and economically stable, growing company since its start in 1931 with the motto to match US President Barack Obama’s –  Yes We Can!

With a Rock ‘n Roll decor, good food, HUGE portions,  and part ownership by one of the members of the band The Guess Who, You can’t lose if you enjoy period diners. This one should be on TV!
