Sam's Place is a cafe and used bookstore, run by Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Manitoba, where youth find community as they develop employable skills and gain experience amongst volunteers.

We are proud to serve delicious food and beverages from sandwiches, salads and soups to desserts and specialty coffees. Our stage hosts a variety of events, often including performances by talented local and traveling musicians. Bookshelves feature a wide range of categories from Canadian Fiction to Children's Literature to Theology and more.
