This is your average hamburger and fry restaurant with a better menu. Specials are offered daily, wraps and soup was good. Service can be slower during busy lunch hour. Good place for morning breakfast. Parking right at the door.

Cute little restaurant out by airport hill. Order at the counter and they will deliver the food to you. Poutine and pogos are excellent and must tries when you stop in here for a bite to eat. Service was friendly and fast. Great prices too.

Our friends recommended this place because it was voted 3rd best Poutine in Canada. It was fantastic! I tried the québécois, Poutine with Montreal smoked meat. It was awesome!

If you haven't tried it yet, their soft serve ice cream is the best around. I find its the thickest and most creamy. I recommend getting it in a waffle cone.

We stopped in with Friends for a quick & late afternoon Lunch. It's a cute soda shop themed restaurant that just does the basics. Fries, Poutine, Burgers, Dogs, Pop, Ice Cream etc... We had a Family Size poutine & shared it between 4 adults & we had trouble finishing it. And we LOVE Fries!!! Would definitely go back.

Thank Sarah S
