A Couple from Seven Oaks

pizzaland1761-main

Main Street. First we have Pizzaland, which is my go-to pizza delivery place. Pretty decent pizza.

Next we have 1761 Main Street, former home of Lisi’s Ranch House. I never ate there—which I now regret—because it looked like an interesting place. I’m not sure how long it had been around, but any time a North End institution like this closes it’s more than a little sad.

Main Street Goodies

Well okay, only one Main Street goody—that being Baraka Pita Bakery. I’ve been addicted to this place ever since I moved into the area. The chicken is to die for. Best shawarma in the city, by far.

Elsewhere, it’s the North End Water Pollution Control Centre (roughly across from Kildonan Park) and a block at Main and Atlantic, in desperate need of TLC.

Main Street. Previously unedited photo from 2010. I was disappointed to find that this West Kildonan establishment had recently removed its awesome signage. I hate to see this stuff disappear from Main Street. Here’s another one that recently vanished.

Main Street is full of anachronisms and here’s one of them; the Manitoba Clothing Co. looks like it crawled right out of 1955.

Main Street. A reader tipped me off that this old mosaic tile signage had been revealed under the Hartford Bakery sign which had been hanging over top of it. Hartford Bakery is now gone and a new bakery (or just a new name?) has taken its place.

Blondies

Blondies

Main Street. While aimlessly flipping through the channels the other day, I thought I detected a familiar face. After closer inspection I realized I was right. “That’s Blondie!” I shoyuted to my vegan wife. Turns out Blondies had been featured on “You Gotta Eat Here,” the Food Network’s answer to “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

And it’s true—you gotta eat here (unless you’re vegan). Don’t let the building’s crusty exterior scare you away; Blondie makes a mean burger. Just follow her rules.

Or you will pay the price.
