These were our first pasties and we really enjoyed them. They also have them frozen and we got a couple to enjoy next week as well.

Went there last week in search of the best pastie in St. Ignace. My wife is a huge pastie fan and after years of telling her I didn't like pasties, I thought I would give them another try. The good news: my wife loved hers...More

They were out of just about everything. With that being said it was the end of the season. Pasties were good. We had the yooper and the vegi. They were okay. Nothing to write home about for sure. Service was fantastic.
