After a very windy walk my son said he was taking me for Poutine. Being a Scot with the ingrained belief that chips (fries) should only be served with malt vinager and salt I had my doubts. Being a hole in the wall place rather than a fine dining establishment I was encouraged to see the mixed bag of clients... 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!

I work around the corner and visit this poutinerie about once every couple of weeks. Love the huge selection of poutine flavours they offer and the monthly special (which cannot be found on the regular menu - a veritable "special"). They use high quality cheese curds and that makes all the difference. They recently brought in milkshakes but I don't... More

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.

This place has the best vegetarian poutine I've ever had! The gravy is mouth watering, and just a touch spicy. Love the original Veggie poutine, or the veggie nacho style one if I'm extra hungry! Great value for such delicious, filling food! Yum!😋

This place is delicious. I would caution people about taking kids here though, as our kids find the gravy too spicy for their taste! There always seems to be a groupon for this place- good to stock up, especially when they are having a 20% off!

Place was cute. Food was fresh made, so took a little time-not a fast food restaurant. Poutine was good, although we were not fans. Smalls are a good size, so may want to share. Again, my daughter had a coupon, so no cost really. It was a promotion to get people in to the new location. Great location; artsy area.... More

I'm pretty sure the address is wrong as I know I ordered off this particular menu. Regardless the poutine was awesome. I got the regular and my SO got the PIG. Definitely worth the visit.

My poutine had lots of curds and gravy. I think that I had more curds than fries. I had the traditional poutine. I am from Montreal and I really enjoyed it

This was my 1st time there - had the cheeseburger poutine and was outstanding - ordered the large and was more then enough for 2 - lots of fillings with fries - only cost $8.99 - good deal
