Winnipeg Diner

Simple, Delicious Diner Food from Scratch

The White Star Diner offers a modern take on traditional diner food. Everything we serve is made from scratch, in keeping with true diners where frozen fries or mechanically deboned alfalfa burgers would have never been served. It may be simple diner food, but it is delicious simple diner food made with quality, fresh ingredients and seasoned just right to bring out all the flavor.

Owner Bruce Smedts has been in the restaurant business his entire life. He is the slightly crazed fellow usually up front when you come in. He has two passions in his life, food and the majestic ocean liners of the 1930’s and 40’s. The restaurant has given him the unique ability to combine the two, spending time cooking in the kitchen and allowing him to display some of his pictures of favorite liners from that amazing era.

The restaurant is named after the Cunard-White Star Line, for which the some of the world’s most famous ocean liners sailed. The fleet included sister ships Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth which were the largest liners ever to be built at the time of their launch. The duo dominated Trans-Atlantic passenger service for the duration of their decades long careers. All of their ships were famous for their White Star Service, which meant going above and beyond. We like to do the same for our customers, serving them only the best homemade food in a bright, friendly environment.
