Tallest Poppy has great sandwiches served with potato chips and pickles, the chicken & waffles are pretty amazing too . I have been here many times, and the only time I didn't enjoy myself was when I brought the wrong company. If you are big on the visual the tables and chairs are old and mismatched. Also feels like it's... More

It was a bit like stepping back in time with the booths and decor. Service was most pleasant with Hilary as our server. Coffee was great. The beef brisket sandwich was a perfect size and very flavourful. It came with ripple chips (haven't seen those in a long time) and a dill pickle wedge. For a little extra $, you... More

I have eaten here many times both for business lunches and family dining and always had a great meal. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and make great suggestions if you are not sure about...

New menu since last time here, and great to see 10am Saturday gets you choice of lunch or brekky. Best breakfast sandwich in city, and the fried chicken is fantastic.

I ran across this place by accident & heard about it so I decided  to try lunch here. The interior is very artistic the tables are all different with different chairs they have paintings on all the walls. I ordered the chicken & matzo ball soup $5.75 & the beef brisket sandwich $11.75. The chicken & matzo ball soup was... More

Went to the tallest poppy for the first time since it relocated from its Old Main Street location. I had heard this place was amazing and I remembered their set menu on Main Street was fabulous. The restaurant is bright and airy and doesn't seem crowded. The service was so good. He was there when we needed him he laughed... More

Stopped in about 6:30 Saturday night for dinner and, although no reservations are taken, it was no problem to get a table. It's not the most comfortable restaurant I've ever been in, but it's ok. The menu is, as others have said, quite eclectic. My girlfriend really wanted to try chicken and waffles, and, after sending back the first serving... More

I went with a buddy that lives within walking distance who vouched for the place. First time visit for me and I will return when I go back to Winnipeg. A funky, old diner vibe and classic dishes with a twist.

Awesome atmosphere. Definitely a hole in the wall type of restaurant with beverage and food options. Friends I went with ordered their chicken and waffles; the chicken was said to be tender and the breading very impressive. I ordered their trifecta burger with fries, which was also very good.

Thank vanharrewynk
