Fools + Horses: Coffee, culture and connection
For anyone paying attention, Winnipeg has really stepped up its coffee game over the past few years. It’s places like Fools + Horses that make it so.
Since opening on Broadway in 2015, F + H’s friendly and inclusive vibe has made it a popular place to meet, work, relax, recharge and otherwise just be. They recently opened a second location at The Forks market, which makes for a livelier but equally welcoming atmosphere.
Both locations offer a full espresso menu anchored by Pilot Coffee and featuring an impressive lineup of rotating roasters. From the nitro-infused cold brew coffee to the steamy Boreal Latte (pictured below), they truly have a beverage for every mood – and every season.
For those feeling something a little stronger, the Broadway location also serves up whiskey, wine and delicious local brews.
Oh, and food. Because what’s a coffee shop hangout without munchies? From seasonal sandwiches and shareable charcuterie boards to doughnuts (from Bronuts and Oh Doughnuts), pastries (from Pennyloaf Bakery) and Manitoba-sourced yogurt parfaits, the menu is a perfect combination of simple and sophisticated.
Their gourmet toasts also make for a light and flavourful snack any time of day.
But what really sets F + H apart is the atmosphere. They aim for connection, and it’s evident in the details. Their sleek Modbar espresso machine helps keep the counter clear and the always-smiling faces behind the bar make for an engaging customer-barista experience.
They also host community events and stock their shelves with a killer collection of locally-made products like jams, spreads, and honey.
Best of all, Fools + Horses loves local just as much as we do. To show that love, they’re giving We Heart Winnipeg cardholders 10% off all brewed coffee and tea purchases.
If you don’t have your card yet, get it here. If you do, head on down to F + H and say hello. They’ll be waiting with open arms.
