Whenever I'm in Thunder Bay I try to visit to Hoito at least once. For a century, this has been a tradition in the city, in the early years providing good inexpensive meals to the immigrant men who had traveled to Port Arthur to work in the timber industry or mines or in the grain elevators. It still serves the community, with good hearty home-cooked meals that are exceptionally tasty. The Finnish pancakes for breakfast are especially recommended -- very thin and broad and of a light tasty batter, they're great with syrup or whipped cream and strawberries. The main downside to this place is that you often have to wait in line to get in, sometimes quite a while if you have a larger party. And it's not the inexpensive bargain it used to be. Prices have climbed in recent years so that it's now an "average" priced place. But every one visiting Thunder Bay should try to have one meal at the Hoito.
