What is Sam's Place?

Sam's Place is a used bookstore, cafe, and music venue located in the Elmwood neighbourhood in Winnipeg. We are proud to serve delicious food and beverages, offering everything from sandwiches, salads, and soups to desserts and specialty coffees. Our stage hosts a wide variety of events, including many talented local and traveling musicians. Sam's Place is a project of Mennonite Central Committee Manitoba, and it is made possible by a vibrant community of dedicated, hardworking staff and volunteers.

Proceeds from Sam's Place support the work of MCC in Manitoba and around the world.
