The Palace of Eats is comfortably nestled in the heart of the Connaught neighbourhood. The atmosphere is best described as upscale deli. Old-fashioned windows and detailed woodwork add to the ambiance and are reminiscent of Calgary in the ’20s or ’30s. A quaint lunch counter is ideal for those grabbing a quick bite alone. The Palace staff knows the value of dining with family, friends or co-workers. There is limited seating available allowing you to get together and dine in a group. Or if the weather cooperates, get your sandwich to go and take it across the street to Connaught Park.
The Palace of Eats prides themselves on sandwiches made from the highest quality ingredients. They use smoked meat ordered directly from Montreal as well as imported Polish sauerkraut and gouda cheese for Reuben sandwiches. The meat is carefully steamed on-site and customers can watch the process occurring. You can choose to have 6, 8 or 10ozs of smoked meat in your sandwich. These hearty sandwiches are served on true Winnipeg rye bread with a side of coleslaw, a juicy Kosher dill pickle and crisp potato chips. All of this food is sure to satisfy even a king-sized appetite!
Not Just Smoked Meat!
Not a meat eater or simply in the mood for something other than a smoked meat sandwich? Try the Bagel and lox. This delicious combination features B.C. Smoked Salmon on a bagel accompanied by cream cheese, capers and red onions. A local baker who studied at St. Viateur Bagel in Montreal provides authentic Montreal bagels to the deli on a daily basis. In addition to bottled water, regular pop and V8 beverages, the Palace has a selection of old-fashioned sodas. You’ll probably find the sandwiches moderately priced but in this instance you definitely get what you pay for. Whether you decide to eat in or take-out you should try dining at the Palace.
Wheelchair Accessible: only for take-out, may not be suitable to eat in.
