is a curated destination experience within a walkable area of our city, creating a community of authentic, local retail + design culture.




This month's feature member is Cibo Waterfront Café.

Cibo is a Design Quarter Winnipeg member because We serve amazing, fresh dishes from within a unique, historic Winnipeg building! Cibo happens within a repurposed industrial building on the bank of the historic Red River. For much of the 20th century, the "pump and screen house" building provided water coolant to Winnipeg's downtown steam heating plant. High ceilings, massive windows, industrial masonry, simple lighting, warm furnishings and urban riverfront views all create the setting for a spacial dining experience.

339 Waterfront Dr. | Mon - Sun : 7am - late.

> #activatewinter blanket project

Look out for our blankets at Fools + Horses, Little Brown Jug, and Forth patios! We believe cities designed for people are ones whose urban spaces put people first. They provide public spaces to congregate year-round, keeping street life humanized + livable. Our mission with these blankets is to encourage Winnipeggers to do just that! Get outside + celebrate the outdoors just like we do in the summer! As a self-proclaimed “Winter City”, let’s do what we can to make this season an enjoyable experience! #StayCozyTogether
