At Winnipeg J.A. Richardson International Airport (YWG), there’s a Plaza Premium Lounge that Priority Pass members can enter. The lounge space is decent and can be crowded during a busy time.
Plaza Premium Lounge Winnipeg is the only lounge at Winnipeg Airport for Priority Pass members. Therefore, while the lounge is small and decent, enjoying a buffet of food and beverages for a quick rest and relaxation before flights is nice.
The Plaza Premium Lounge Winnipeg is located at Gate 6 in the domestic flight area, so international or US-bound flight passengers will NOT be able to enter the area and thus cannot enter the lounge because it is a separated section due to the immigration area.

There’s only one terminal at the Winnipeg airport, which serves both domestic and international flights out of Winnipeg. However, each section is fully separated, as seen in the photo below, and that’s why US-bound flight passengers cannot use the lounge.

There are also lounging chairs across the lounge and some cubical seats that offer little privacy.
You can also find a few dining tables by the bar. The bar also bar stools.
The lounge size is not large, so it can get crowded during the busy time. I was visiting in the morning, so it wasn’t too bad.

Additional Lounge Seats
It was a morning flight, so I was inside the lounge when the buffet was breakfast.
They served scrambled eggs, sausages, cubed potatoes, and toast. They also have a salad section too, oatmeal and yogurt, etc. It’s a small buffet breakfast, but it’s all you can eat, so you can enjoy free breakfast as much as you want.
There are non-alcoholic beverages inside a self-serving fridge by the buffet area and a full-service bar in Plaza Premium Lounge Winnipeg.
Plaza Premium Lounge Winnipeg does not have bathrooms, so you’ll have to leave the lounge and use the airport bathroom.
There’s Wi-Fi inside the lounge.
