Went for the first time today with friends for lunch. Service was very good given that the place was full. A bit pricey, but still enjoyed the Reuben sandwich and a smoothie.

Description
Prairie Ink
A bistro-style restaurant that started in 1996, as a wholly-owned part of McNally Robinson Booksellers.

Local
Whenever possible we use local produce and ingredients. We try to use in-season produce as much as possible to support local producers.

Events & Entertainment
We have hosted over 5000 author events, featuring local, national and international writers, speakers and artists.

Healthy Choices
We offer celiac friendly choices. Our baking and desserts are made in-house daily by our bakers. We use farm-fresh eggs from grain-fed chickens and Manitoba sourced menu items in season.

Environment
Our take-out containers are enviro-friendly and compostable. Our UTZ coffee (an industry-led coffee certification program) ensures farmers are treated fairly.
