I’ve been eating lunch regularly at Neechi Commons at 865 Main Street. A number of schools I serve as a faculty advisor for the university are in the area. I’ve discovered it’s a great place to go for lunch. The commons is an Aboriginal owned and operated cooperative and contains not only a restaurant but also a grocery store where I often stop after my school visits to pick up items I need for supper .There is also an art store called……..
The waiters are friendly, helpful and polite and the food at Niche Commons is always good. I especially enjoy the homemade soups. Last week I had a delicious cream of cauliflower and yesterday’s special was a beef barley. The bannock is wonderful and so are the salads. Yesterday I tried the wild rice salad. The restaurant has a full menu with all kinds of burgers and breakfast items as well.
Neechi means friend/sister/brother in Cree and Ojibwa.
Neechi Commons is the largest commercial employer of First Nations and Metis people. More than 50 people are employed by the store and the art shop represents the work of some 40 artists.
