Winnipeg - late/all night diner near airport???
We're flying to Yellowknife in a couple of weeks and have a nasty layover in Winnipeg, midnight to 6am! I was hoping to find an all night diner or someplace we could hang out for a couple of hours to reduce the time sitting at the airport. Google turned up nothing so I thought I'd ask on this board.
Anyone familiar with the city have any suggestions?
There are not very many options in Winnipeg at that time of night. If you are willing to cab it out of the airport I would suggest Papa George's on the corner of River& Osborne (probably a $10-15 fare). They are open until 4pm and serve the usual pizza, Greek etc all quite tasty. Salisbury House which is Winnipeg institution is also open all night. There are many locations- the cabbie would know them and they serve typical greasy spoon fare- famous for their hamburgers known as "nips".
Closer to the airport you will be stuck with Perkins or similar. I wish you luck.
