Five star food, service and atmosphere. Can't say enough about the place. Best wonton soup in the entire world. Seriously, I've had a lot of wonton soup. Can't wait to go back!

The decor of the restaurant is very, very nice. Our server was very knowledge about the menu and the beer options (hubby always like... More

One of my favourite things is recommending good restaurants to people and hearing glowing comments back from them. My most recent positive feedback came from two people attending an educators' conference at Nipissing University. These ladies -- absolute strangers to me -- had some time to kill before flying back to Toronto, and asked if I could recommend any good... More

Ate here a few times and it was always very good. From the atmosphere, to the service, to the food...mmm!! We had the dim sum and love it. It's one of our favourite restaurants in North Bay.

The Chicago Cafe is 100 years old this year, and yet it is still likely the best restaurant in North Bay. We have been there many times - the feasts are an amazing journey for your tastebuds - and we are pleased every time we go. Helen is not only a delightful hostess, but I'd highly encourage you to allow... More

The Chicago cafe is an absolutely magic place with an enticing aura of it's own. Just the right amount of dark, history seeping from it's walls, and a quiet atmosphere solitude. Charming secret tucked away in the core of North Bay, I couldn't have asked for a more perfect Birthday dinner. The server, magnificent soul, treated us with such brilliant... More

Had a wonderful meal at this restaurant and we will be returning. The food was great quality (the duck starter was delicious) and they give generous portions (both our table and the one beside us took food home at the end of the meal). Our waitress was very friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. I will definitely be back, and... More
