U of W café offers 'ethical options'

  • Print
UNIVERSITY of Winnipeg students have a new place to fill up on fair trade coffee and tea with the opening of the Soma Café, an eatery run by the University of Winnipeg Students' Association.

The café opened two weeks ago in a small but airy space in the university's revamped Duckworth Centre on Spence St. "The plans have been in the works for quite a while," said Sarah Amyot, UWSA's general co-ordinator.

Amyot said the idea was to offer "more ethical options" than what's sold at campus cafeterias.

The café menu includes local bread from Tall Grass Prairie Bakery and jam made by a community group, and Amyot said they're hoping to eventually include fair trade syrup and sugar.

For now, the café is opened until six p.m. Monday to Friday, but may be open on weekends in the future, said Amyot.
