If you’ve never seen the Canadian Prairies, get to Regina. If you’ve never tried prairie pizza, same. This pizza is to Saskatchewan what donairs are to Nova Scotia—there are attempts to copy the style, but no one can master it. Home to a large population of people of Ukrainian heritage, the city also features spots that serve up authentic and traditional Ukrainian food. If you’re travelling to Regina, don’t leave without trying these:
Deep dish pizza from Houston Pizza
Saskatchewan natives are passionate about their pizza. If you’ve tried Chicago deep dish style pies, then you’ve come close to prairie pizza—but you’re still not quite there. Well-travelled Regina natives with a lot of pizza experience say they’ve never had it quite as good as at Houston’s. Their brand of three-inch-deep pizza can’t be replicated. Recommended toppings/fillings: beef and onion, spinach and feta, pineapple and hot peppers, or a classic pepperoni and bacon. Regina pizzerias deserving of an honourable mention: Tumbler’s and Western Pizza.
33 ⅓ Coffee Roasters
Run by people who take making a good cup of coffee very seriously, 33 ⅓ shares a space with a brewery called Malty National and a record shop. The combination of coffee, beer, and vinyl (plus your need to meet your daily caffeine requirements) make this stop essential.

Once a year Bushwakkers brewpub brews up a batch of mead. It’s available only for a few weeks around Christmas and nearly the entire city will begin lining up at dawn to get some. In Regina. In winter. Some of them will be dressed as Vikings. If you’re not that brave, try one of Bushwakker’s other house-brewed beers. Pair them with their “Saskatchewan Hot Plate” (a selection of Ukrainian staples like cabbage rolls, kielbasa sausage, pierogies, sauerkraut, and beer bread).
Italian Star Deli
Carlo and his mom Gina work out of the back of their small, 50-year-old Italian family grocery store making the best sandwiches in Regina. Stuffed with a selection of meat and cheese, they’re a favourite of locals and expats returning to visit. Order yours spicy and get treated to a delicious dose of “Mama Gina’s La Bomba super spicy spread.”

Regina Farmers’ Market breakfast
The market runs on Saturdays from March to October each year as well as Wednesday mornings during the summer months. In addition to local produce, you can pick up things like baked stuff, good coffee, and cheese. The main reason to go, however, is for the incredible breakfasts from one of the many food vendors. This one comes with wild boar bacon.
#TBT to our #MarketBrunch last weekend! Everyone enjoyed their brunch bowl which packed a punch in regards to flavour and included products from all these vendors: flour from The Healthy Grind, @millersbygonefarm eggs, @floatinggardens greens, Pusch Bros. tomatoes, Pure T Organics lentils, Golden Prairie Wild Boar bacon, and Scandinavian Sweethearts pickled garlic & scapes! This amazing local meal, made only with products from RFM vendors, was prepared by @maalinche of @thebackyard_. #brunch #BrunchTime #YQR #YQRfood #FarmersMarket #FarmToTable #KnowYourFarmer #KnowYourFood #RealBread #RealFood #EatLocal #SupportLocal #ThrowbackThursday
Blue Bird Cafe
Two things: 1. Regina Beach is home to one of the coolest, most authentic retro diners we’ve ever seen. They serve amazing fish and chips as well as soft serve ice cream, the ultimate summer food. 2. Regina has a really awesome beach.
