Romantic Getaway or Foodie Excursion?Foodie Excursion
There’s no shortage of great places to eat in Saskatoon. The city is home to top chefs, local fare and unique cuisine. In fact, there are more restaurants in Saskatoon, per capita, than any city in Canada! After winning Top Chef Canada, Dale MacKay moved back to Saskatoon to open Ayden Kitchen and Bar, which was named one of the best new restaurants in Canada in 2014 by enRoute Magazine.
Competition in the city is heating up as more and more restaurants are opening their doors. Looking for vegetarian options? Stop by Nosh Eatery and Tap for a bite. If you’re craving something with a Cajun flavour then swing over to Bon Temps Cafe for New Orleans-inspired food and décor. For satisfying comfort food and great drinks, try Congress Beer House or The Rook and Raven Pub.

It doesn’t get much more romantic than staying in a castle on the river, so check in to the historic Delta Bessborough Hotel. If a contemporary boutique hotel is more your style, splurge a little and check out The James Hotel. Slip down to the swanky Lobby Bar while living in the lap of luxury for a few nights. It is the perfect place to grab a glass of fine wine or a vintage cocktail.
Now that your accommodation is taken care of, it’s time to plan your evening. Good food is easy, but then what? If your special someone is interested in live music, then you’ve come to the right city. There are plenty of local pubs offering live tunes and the Broadway area is a great spot to pub crawl. When in the Bridge City, don’t forget to take in the scenic river views. Take a stroll on the riverside path, or strap on some skates and glide along on the outdoor Cameco Meewasin Skating Rink.
