The weather is getting seriously cold in Winnipeg! There's no better way to get warm and cozy than with comfort food. If you're not in the mood to make some at home, here's where to dig into some seriously delicious comfort food around Winnipeg.
Bistro on Notre Dame
If you dig the idea of elevated comfort food that just happens to be local, sustainable and responsibly sourced, Bistro on Notre Dame is your kind of place. They serve approachable, yet upscale, comfort food. Take, for example, their twist on fish and chips -- IPA battered hot buttermilk whitefish, thick cut fries and kale-slaw. We should all do what we can to support Indigenous-owned businesses, and Bistro on Notre Dame is Metis-owned.
If you dig familiar comfort food in an unexpected way, be sure to visit Kevin's Bistro. Did we mention they serve 5 kinds of mac and cheese?! Their menu is full of comfort food surprises like cauliflower crust flatbreads, rich and creamy pasta dishes, tacos and more. Their food is also locally sourced!
Feast Cafe Bistro
If you want to explore Indigenous-inspired food in a comfort food style, Feast Cafe Bistro is for you. Owner Christa is a proud member of the Peguis First Nation and weaves Indigenous traditions and flavours into her modern food. Expect approachable dishes like Bannock pizzas, burgers, sandwiches and tacos.
Whether you love sweet or savoury comfort food dishes, Sam's Restaurant has it all. The food is inspired by the flavours and traditions of Germany and Austria -- think freshly made schnitzel, burgers, salads and pastries.
Dairy Maid and Deli
If you love deli and diner style comfort food, you need to visit Dairy Maid and Deli. With a menu that's loaded with classic diner breakfasts, salads, burgers, stacked and grilled sandwiches, fries and soups, you can't go wrong.
We hope you find these amazing restaurants as comforting and delicious as we do on a cold day in Winnipeg.
