Through the years, Mondragon has solidified their reputation as a valuable source for hard to find books in addition to vegan, local, organic and eco-friendly food in Winnipeg. Over the years, the bookstore and coffeehouse have continued to bring in interesting speakers, live music, and movie nights along with new and delicious menu options.

Mondragon is currently owned and operated by fourteen community members, many of whom are long time members, serving on the collective for five years or more. The Jubilee Fund Inc. originally supported Mondragon Worker Cooperative in 2004 when the cooperative purchased the restaurant from the previous owner. The Fund was pleased to once again provide a loan guarantee to the worker cooperative to provide funds for the renovations, and for the purchase of equipment and inventory necessary to start this new enterprise.
