The mâmawi cafe is a student-run food program that is at the heart of the mâmawêyatitân center in North Central. The cafe’s purpose is to provide training opportunities for Food Tourism & Hospitality Pathway students at Scott Collegiate. Under the guidance of our teacher and in-house red seal chef, students obtain high level skills, certifications and meaningful experiences that will equip them to be successful in the industry after high-school.
The cafe is open to the public for drop-in (in house day-to-day menu) or pick-up (online a la carte menu) Monday to Friday!
Place an order online and let our team make your office lunch or your corporate event a success. Help us spark an impact in the community!
Food Tourism & Hospitality Pathway
The tourism industry is one of the fastest growing job sectors in the world. There is a growing interest in food tourism – a taste of place. Starting in grade 10, students learn the day to day operations of running the mâmawi cafe. In grade 11, there is a focus on Indigenous food systems and culinary opportunities. In grade 12, students continue to develop their culinary skills, adding creative input into the cafe. They will also participate in an internship in the industry. Upon graduation, students are ready to enter the workforce with more than 300 hours of experience.

Thank you so much for the amazing meal. All of the Elders and all of the police officers were in absolute awe over the meal. It was absolutely incredible. We had a great talk over lunch about your program, the amazing things you are all doing, and the great works of art you create. All of us were so grateful for the incredible care you always put into the meals. These are especially important in that we can honour our Elders in a good way by sharing such amazing food.

Kelley and her students at the mamawi café have catered many events for me at the Division Office. They’ve provided lunches for our Elders meetings (the soup and bannock is always a real hit!) and also catered some Division wide events. The food has always been delicious with large portions, served in a professional manner and is very affordable. It’s so nice to see the students take pride in their work and be so eager to help out at the events. They are very accommodating to dietary restrictions and other special requests. I would not hesitate to recommend mamawi café to cater your next event!
