Feast Café Bistro
587 Ellice Avenue
Winnipeg, MB R3B 1Z7
When chef-owner Christa Bruneau-Guenther opened Feast Café Bistro, she never expected the humble cooking and spirit of this West End neighbourhood restaurant to foster such national attention.
It is one of only a handful of Indigenous-owned and operated restaurants in Canada that is rooted in First Nations cuisine
Having only been open since December 2016, Feast is already a neighbourhood and community hot spot while Bruneau-Guenther, a member of the Peguis First Nation who grew up in Winnipeg’s North End, has become an ambassador for Indigenous cooking in North America.
She’s already been featured in publications and media outlets including Chatelaine, Canadian Living, WestJet Magazine, the CBC, and most recently the Globe and Mail, where Christa was part of the article “Canada’s Kitchen: 2018 Edition. Meet the country’s next guard of culinary stars.”
Christa has also been a featured speaker at the Terroir Symposium in Toronto, has cooked at the First Nations Fire Feast in the Yukon, has done events for Destination Canada in Vancouver and was the 2017 Travel Manitoba Indigenous Tourism Award winner.
