Our Story

We use only the best ingredients that keep customers coming back.

We are a family run restaurant in Regina - and we love what we do.  And it shows in our food.  It is wholesome, home-cooked and tasty. 

Nicky's Café was established in April of 1986 by Nick Makris and John Makris.  It continues to be proudly run by family members.

Why is our food so good?  Well first of all, we make HOMEMADE burgers. We use only the finest and freshest ingredient available to mankind. The patty consists of only Canada Choice fresh lean ground beef, ground by us, carefully charbroiled for maximum juiciness and flavor.  And you get half a pound! The buns are custom baked sesame-seed buns, and it is all topped with the freshest of sauces and garnishes.

We support local suppliers where ever we can and you can taste the difference. We get our potatoes from farms near Craven.  We also serve our specially selected smoked bacon thickly sliced on our premises.  We serve old fashioned Canadian maple flavoured ham that is fresh baked, not pressed.

We are famous as well for our Lentil Soup.  We have served over 3 million bowls to people from all over the country.  We even invite you to take a stab at making it at home - the recipe is available in the restaurant.

Who said, “You can’t take it with you!” Nicky’s proudly packs up most of its goodies so that you can take ‘em home, to the office or on an outing. Call ahead and we’ll have your “To Go” order waiting. Ask for a free “To Go” menu.
