Our Story

About Komfort Kitchen


Original Site

Komfort Kitchen is located in the NE corner of 9th Street & Princess Avenue, in the heart of the Downtown Hub of Brandon, Manitoba, Canada.

The building, erected around 1911, was once a small confectionery store. The market expanded and they began selling food and drinks to hungry people. As time went by a caf� was established for the citizens of Brandon. The well-known Princess Cafe stood for many years as a recommended place to eat from the 40’s until the 90’s.

Established 2005

Restaurant opens

In 2004, Derek Woychyshyn was approached to create a new restaurant at 835 Princess Avenue! It was decided that a breakfast and lunch joint would fit right in to Downtown Brandon. After a three month face lift, Komfort Kitchen opened its doors on February 3rd, 2005.


In 2009 it became apparent that more space was required. Our small restaurant had grown a reputation of having great food and friendly service, so more and more customers came in for breakfast and lunch. This resulted in the neighbouring building of 829 Princess Avenue providing the space for a large expansion. A complete renovation turned 1,000 sq feet into more space for both the dining area and the kitchen. The kitchen was expanded to meet the needs of both the restaurant as well as the catering side of the business. The added space also allowed the KK to boost the seating capacity from 47 to 80. With the help of a BNRC grant, both buildings had a store front facelift to create a common, more updated look.
