Covid-19, Delivery food bag

Our response to The COVID-19 Crisis

By | Update | No Comments

Like all restaurants across the world, we have been monitoring developments with the spread of COVID-19 very closely. The necessary adjustment were made and accustomed to the needs of containing the virus.

Responding to Covid-19

To ensure we abide by recommendations and promote social distancing, we closed our dine-in area. We remain committed to serving the community and ensuring our employees’ livelihood by offering food delivery and pick up. You can call us to place your order at 204-221-1636 or 204-295-7155. Delivery is available for certain part of the city directly by calling us.

Covid-19, Delivery food bagWe continue our partnership with Uber Eats and Skip The Dishes but have unfortunately terminated our contract with DoorDash. Our opening hours were modified to 12 pm to 6 pm. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve unfortunately had to lay off some of our employees which saddens up deeply.


Other changes we’ve implemented are adding a glass panel between the kitchen are and the counter. While we always maintain our restaurant in tip top shape and spotless, we’ve increased the cleaning and sanitization frequency. In addition, only one employee works the kitchen to minimize contact and contamination. We will continue to intensify our food safety protocols to uphold the highest possible hygiene standards and strive to provide a fast, fresh, personalized and most importantly safe experience.

Helping The Community

On March 25, we wanted to extend our help to the Grace Hospital where we offered the Emergency Ward (nurses, doctors, cleaning personnel) free wraps. The overwhelming reaction and messages we received were so heartwarming and unprecedented for us. Seeing these overworked people being so grateful for such a small act of kindness towards them brought us to our knees. We were thrilled to be a part of their day and let them know that we support them through this crisis as they are the true heros!

In addition, we donated some wraps to the residents of Heritage Lodge to help out in this time of need. With seniors being the most vulnerable, extending our help to them is our way of letting them know they are in thoughts and prayers.

If you are a senior, healthcare worker or a person with disabilities, or know someone that is, we are offering 50% off your first order nadn free delivery on subsequent orders.

Thank You to Our Customers

Without our customers, we wouldn’t be here without your support. Many people have stepped up on social media to let us know that they are supporting us to keep our staff employed and our doors open. We are ever so grateful for you, for being there and keeping us in your thoughts.

Please stay safe and take care of yourselves and each other during this difficult time. We hope this COVID-19 crisis will be over soon to be able to dine with you once again.

Winnipeg, Manitoba, a new café has opened its doors in Winnipeg.

Yafa Café Arabic Street Food Ltd., owned and operated by Rana and Sarah Abdulla, is set to be home to a stunning new café, loved and renowned for its architecture, its art, its great service, and, for its superb food and coffee.

Yafa Café, offers state of the art modern facilities with its Arabic ambiance, for a vibrant experience. Customers enjoy greater space, more comfortable seating, a large outdoor decking space for the summer months.  It is fast becoming the go-to meeting place for coffee-loving Winnipeggers.

Rana Abdulla, the owner said “when people experience the Café, they aren’t just enjoying great food and drink in a fantastic Arabic style setting, but they also witness how we are boosting our culturally diverse city.  We have items and styles of cooking people have never seen that will draw all kinds of customers and businesses with prices that are competitive and affordable.  This is an addition to Winnipeg, not new to Winnipeg, it’s great news for everyone”.

The café is located few blocks from Polo Park on the corner of Berry and Portage and minutes away from the Assiniboine Zoo. “You can’t get a better location than that,” said Abdulla, who believes that the café’s setting, décor and healthy exotic menu will bring curious and discerning people into the eatery, and that the quality of the food and ambience will bring them back again and again, with their friends.

The owners describe it as a café and community workspace that aims to foster a vibrant culture of appreciating culture and diversity.

The entrance reflects a thoughtful reuse of an old building dating back to 1911 and the interior introduces a creative design for maximum speed and efficiency of service while shining a bright light on Arabic street food, reimagined and poised to assert itself as the best food.
