We had breakfast on Saturday morning at a new Winnipeg restaurant called Feast. They serve modern dishes rooted in traditional First Nations foods. Everything is prepared with locally sourced ingredients. Feast is at the corner of Ellice Avenue and Shebrooke just across from the West End Cultural Centre. The eatery is housed in an historic Winnipeg building designed by J.D. Atchison an architect from Chicago who designed more than a hundred buildings in the city in the early 1900s. The interior space has been beautifully renovated with lots of light, a bar and comfortable seating. They’ve maintained the old tin ceiling but added…….Lovely light fixturesand large illuminated photos of Manitoba landscapes that sweep across the space. The menu includes breakfast, lunch and dinner items featuring things like bannock, wild salmon, grass fed bison, home made berry jam, maple syrup, fry bread, cranberries and saskatoons. I had The Ellice for breakfast with bison sausage, hashbrowns, bannock and eggs. It could easily have been shared between two people. Feast was a cozy place for breakfast on a very cold morning. We will definitely be back.
