2023 RBC Reaction by Collision Lineup: Food

April 12, 2023

Feast Café Bistro

Feast Café Bistro is a 100% Indigenous owned and operated restaurant serving dishes inspired by the traditional flavours of this great land. From day one, Feast has run as a hybrid restaurant and social enterprise. Some crowd favourites include butternut squash bannock pizza, traditional tipi tacos, pan-seared Manitoba pickerel and wild rice, slow-roasted sweetgrass bison ribs with wild blueberry BBQ sauce, and, of course, fresh-made bannocks!

Feast harvests, cooks, and eats with good intention. The folks at Feast pay respect to the plants and animals that give themselves to nourish our bodies. Feast proudly uses foods native to the land, such as wild rice, squash, beans and bison. Feast is committed to working with the community by participating in initiatives surrounding Indigenous foods, education and work experience with local non-profits and providing opportunities to those who face barriers to employment.

“As we eat together, we honour our connections, preserve our history and share our stories. This is where our name comes from, what inspires us and our menu.”

Born and raised in Winnipeg and a proud member of Peguis First Nation, owner Christa Bruneau-Guenther is a homecook turned restaurateur. She has made it her mission to help Feast become a pillar in the community, a place for the community to reconnect and learn about Indigenous food and culture. 

Since opening in late 2015, Christa and Feast have been featured on national and international stages like Food Network Canada, Canadian Living and Chatelaine Magazine. Feast has been honored to host guests from all walks of life—from community members, elders, and families to community leaders, senators, and supreme court justices.
