Prairie Fire—located in Union South—is both a café at the storefront and tapas bar around the corner. Whether you’re feeling the need for specialty morning coffee or tea, or looking for evening tapas with fine wine or local beer, Prairie Fire has you covered.

The café offers a wide selection of fresh bakery goods, grab-and-go sandwiches, wraps and salads. The tapas bar has a fine selection of shareable plates. Stop by to enjoy a snack and a beverage in front of the fireplace or head outside to relax on the nearby patio.
