What do you think about the closing of Mondragon after 20 years in business?

  • Justin Mezibroski, 3rd year, Biochemistry

    A lot of small businesses in the city, especially a lot of these more, I guess, fringe businesses that don’t reach a huge market, they’re struggling to make ends meet.

    I think it was a long time coming...The service got worse over time, and now that’s sort of a product of their declining business.

  • Bilan Arte, Chairperson, CFS Manitoba

    I think that the Mondragon has served as a really awesome community organizing space, and a really good space for folks to be able to organize both locally and collectively for things like food and the provision of books.

    Mondragon was the most unique restaurant in the country, hands down. The A Zone is the only building of its kind in North America-there’s not an autonomous zone in the United States, even. And, they had great food!
