Dining in Winnipeg – Peasant Cookery

Upscale comfort food in the heart of the Exchange District - A visit to Winnipeg is not complete without a lunch or dinner at Peasant Cookery.

Real food from the land
A a visit to Winnipeg is not quite complete without dinner at Peasant Cookery on Bannatyne Street in Winnipeg’s Exchange District. The restaurant is open for lunch/brunch Tuesday to Friday and dinner six days a week, closed on Sunday. The lunch and dinner menus change regularly and use local and unique ingredients. If you do not read all the way to the bottom, know that this is a place that you should definitely try. 

Peasant Cookery is housed inside a heritage building. It is very open with round and square tables as well as large booths and a row of window seats. The bar/lounge is actually across the hall and looks like a great place for an after work drink and a snack.

The tables and chairs have a comfortable farm house feel and the window sills are lined with pickles, preserves and other canned goods just like your Gramma’s were. The view out the window across Bannatyne or King is of other heritage buildings.

There is a Charcuterie Board option and a Cheese Board option with an ever-changing selection of specialty cheeses and meats. Cheeses can be added by the ounce to the Charcuterie board to ‘create-your-own’ favourites. This is always a good way to start the meal, especially when accompanied by a House Cocktail.

Oysters are flown in fresh and available in a half dozen (with individual pricing to add on). On this visit we shared a Kale and Rosemary Roasted Root Vegetable Salad to start. The sherry, brown sugar vinaigrette was yummy. Pasta was our theme of the day with House Sausage Meatball Pappardelle and Vegan Mac and Cheese (plus Lakeshore Pickerel not pictured).

The food, the service and company always made this a great lunch or dinner out in Winnipeg. If I have time next visit I would like to try the lounge for a snack/cocktail.
