We happened to drive through MacGregor and we almost finished driving the main street when we noticed the bison sign, we stopped and backed up. So happy we did. What a treasure. We will be marking it as a place to stop when in the...area. The place was clean, food that tastes like it was caringly made with good ingredients and great coffee. The presentation was nice and the friendly staff made the whole lunch experience something that left us smiling. While there we also shopped for some gifts, the special kind you don't find in the big box stores.More

Everything I’ve ever tried here has been delicious. They are very friendly they are welcoming to children. Their flowers are beautiful. Sometimes they have a little five dollar mini bouquets and they are so adorable!

The best little place, they’ve got you covered from coffee to treats to supper and everything in between. It’s one of my favourite places and I love making the trip to visit, grab a drink and of course something from the kitchen. ❤️ Highly recommend!

Walking into Bison General I found a brightly lit store with a great atmosphere, music playing in the back ground, friendly staff, flavourful food (the cinnamon buns are d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s) and specialty coffees, hot or cold. Bison General offers beautiful bouquets of flowers for sale along...with a variety of other items. The menu is so tempting, everything sounds yummy! Jen prepares the food, creating wonderful dishes and treats (try the salted toffee brownies or the Crack & Cheese!) and Mike serves the customers in a warm and welcoming way. A well run family business nestled in the heart of MacGregor, Manitoba. It's easy to find, just a two minute drive off the #1 highway.More

I have a job that normally would frequently has me visiting Portage and Brandon, and neither of those cities has a coffee shop with half the personality and quality of Bison General. If you are in the area, make sure to stop by.

There is so many great things about Bison General. I have NEVER had a bad meal. Their soup, salads, sandwiches, pizza, and baking is all amazing. They put so much thought and love into each meal. The flavours are so delicious and different (not something...you come by often in small towns and I LOVE IT). My favourites are the bacon, blackberry and Brie sandwich and the sweet with heat bbq chicken pizza! When I have people come to visit I always suggest going there for a coffee, snack, lunch or some shopping. They are the kindest people and always make you feel like family. If you have kids they have the cutest little lunch board PERFECT for keeping kids happy and quiet while you enjoy your lunch. Bison General is a true gem in this little town!More
