“The best place for poutine in town”

If you are in Sault Ste. Marie and are craving poutine, this is the place to go! They have late night service, they have 24/7 service, they have large portions and it is amazing! I live in the Sault and have been coming here for poutine since I was a teenager. Coffee and an evening poutine is great during any season!
The atmosphere is not what you come for. This is a plain restaurant, with your average brown, metal chair and your wooden tables cover with linoleum that is rising off. Don't be fooled. Best meal you will ever sit down too! The burgers are huge, the service is good and the coffee is always on!

As we rode up, I knew this place would have a great breakfast and it didn't disappoint. It's your typical tiny little run down cafe from the outside. Very friendly wait staff and GREAT food! Not to mention a great price. I can be a complete foody...but sometimes, there's just something awesome about a simple breakfast done just right...and they nail it here.

Oh...and the bacon was some of the best I've ever had!

At a glacé you might say what a dive, but don't be fooled by appearances they deliver the goods. Amazing food, great price, open 24/7 and they serve beer. Portions are large and the staff are friendly and helpful. My wife and I each had a half pound jalapeño burger, with fries, gravy, coleslaw and 2 beers each, the bill was $42.00 and we were stuffed. If you visit Sault Ste. Marie, YOU'VE GOTTA EAT HERE

AMAZING! Shrimp , Soup, coleslaw, and a bacon and mozza poutine , with coffee, waitress was a complete sweetheart and my coffee was always full - never had to ask annoying questions like "can i have some cream?" - she was consistent and on the ball. Coffee was brewing as we walked in and meal was ready in under 10 minutes, only downside was the gravy was a little bit different than usual but still good!

I enjoy the west side cafe if I am looking for home style cooking, and quick in and out. What it lacks on decor, it makes up for it in taste. The restaurant is open 24 hrs. and is right at the Sault Ste Marie US border entrance. The staff is wonderful and don't constantly ask you if you like the food, they leave you alone to enjoy your friends. You could drive past and not even notice this gem. I especially enjoy their breakfast (all day) but their portions are too big and food is wasted ( on me anyway).
