Sam's Place is a cafe, used bookstore and music venue located in the Elmwood neighbourhood in Winnipeg. They are proud to serve delicious food and beverages, offering everything from sandwiches, salads, and soups to desserts and specialty coffees. The stage hosts a wide variety of events, including many talented local and traveling musicians. There is a cover charge of $5. Performers are compensated with donations by passing around the old red cowboy boot that sits on the stage, and a free drink.
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.
