Four Places to Eat in Saskatoon

This prairie city is a foodie's paradise 


 

From produce-stacked farmers’ market stalls to hip restaurants helmed by local chefs, the food scene in Saskatoon is booming. Here are four places where you absolutely must dig in to some fresh fare.

Calories Bakery & Restaurant

Experience brunch at this popular spot where chefs have been using local ingredients since before it was the thing to do—think heirloom tomatoes, swiss chard and edible flowers from the on-site garden. Try the corn and house-smoked cheddar waffles topped with chicken in a wild mushroom sauce. 

NOSH Eatery & Tap

Veggie-lovers should head straight to NOSH Eatery & Tap, where the creative menu is enough to convert even the most die-hard carnivores. It’s full of hearty dishes, like the black bean and quinoa burger, but if you’d rather not go full-veg, opt for walleye or trout fresh from nearby Candle and Diefenbaker lakes. 

Saskatoon Farmers’ Market

For other local treats, gather up some items at this 41-year-old farmers’ market in Riversdale for a picnic at nearby River Landing. Fill your basket with oil and vinegar from The Prairie Pantry and buttery-soft bread from Darlene’s Baking.

Ayden Kitchen & Bar

Don’t leave without eating at Saskatoon-born chef Dale MacKay’s Ayden Kitchen & Bar. Since 2013, this spot has been an anchor of the city’s dining scene. Opt for the local bison tartare or smoked chicken breast with bacon and sauerkraut and try one of mixologist Christopher Cho’s seasonal libations.
