I don't usually like poutine, but this place has so many cool variations of the traditional Canadian dish I will definitely be coming back. They're a little pricey but most poutine is, and their serving sizes definitely make-up for the price. The poutine is very...More

A great place to get some fresh, hot poutine. Many varieties but the traditional is always a good thing. Some might find it a little salty but that's the best part!

A fun place to take the kids. Great variety of poutines with some very unique flavours. Portion sizes are huge. I'd suggest to simply get a small. Will return when the desire for some poutine returns.
