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...

Lovely restaurant and polite server. Overpriced for the quality of the food but the atmosphere is relaxing and bright.

This is a café within an independent bookstore that we like to support. It has an adequate selection for vegetarians. It's frequently packed. If you're in a rush to get in and out, perhaps this is not your best choice. If you want to relax over good food, it is. Because I am a grown up, I recently treated myself... More

Went here for lunch with a group of friends. It is very busy and you are not able to make reservations. The food is plentiful and has a bit of a different twist to old favorites. You can feel a bit rushed if you go during lunch time as there is always someone waiting for you table when you are... More

Prairie Ink is a cute and cozy restaurant set in the McNally Robinson book store on 8th Street in Saskatoon. We went for Saturday night lattes and was pleasantly surprised to see that there was live music that was very good and it was a nice touch to a evening out with friends. The service was a little slow but... More

This restaurant had a more interesting atmosphere compared to most others, and the food was simply amazing! Very high quality and unique choices of salads. My favourite so far is the lentil/beet/goat cheese salad and I will definitely be visiting again (especially to show my friend what it is like since I know she will love it too)!

Comfortable restaurant, part of McNally Book store. Enjoyed our meal. 5 different order and everyone felt their food was very good and well presented. Server was very pleasant and helpful. It was fun to browse through the Book Store both before and after our meal.
