Great selection of food and drinks at the Prairie Ink Restaurant, I had a chicken BLT and a peppermint frost tea and both were delicious and we didn't wait long for our food to arrive after ordering it. It was a busy spot and we had to wait a little while for our table, but it gave us time to... More

Although this restaurant is more like a café, you have a several options and everyone can find something they like. It does get a little loud when they are busy, so try to hit off hours if you are going to relax or chat business.

We had a great late supper. Service was great. We sat and visited with no rushing. I had carrot soup which was amazing. London fog tea was very good.

I had the Prairie Ink Salad with shrimp. It tasted a bit bitter to me. The shrimp was a great addition. My husband had the soup, which he said was fine. My salad was a huge plate and cost $20 CAD with the shrimp. I've been to this restaurant before in the last year and had a delicious pear salad... More

I sometimes head here on Friday nights for coffee and dessert with a friend to catch their live music. The food is good as is their customer service.

This little restaurant is a delight. You browse the bookstore then stop at the restaurant-what could be better? The menu has so many tasty choices it's hard to decide. I have personally tried several and can't say enough good things about each dish I've ordered. The salads in particular are very tasty. The portions are large and each salad choice... More

The soups are always flavourful. It is a very popular place so sometimes waiting lines are a little long. Always a pleasure to wait inside the bookstore anyway. Good selection of vegetarian choices. Servers are always pleasant. On this occasion prompt and friendly service was provided by Brittany.

We found this restaurant and bakery by chance. It is located inside the independent McNalley and Robinson bookstore, which is a gem of a find in its own right. The restaurant menu features home made soups, a number of appetizers and sandwiches, pizza, salads, and huge unique desserts from the bakery. Both the turkey club and chicken club sandwiches were...
