We are summer residents in Lake of the Woods and today was our first visit of the season to The Hungry Pug Café. Coincidentally, it was also this restaurant's first day with the new summer menu. While waiting for our mains to be prepared, we shared a toasted cinnamon bun with whipped honey butter and fruit garnish. My husband is a cinnamon bun snob, but he gobbled up three-quarters of the pastry for himself and practically licked the plate afterwards! NB. A variety of delightful home baked goods are available as take-out from the pastry case at the front of the café. My husband and I ordered the same item from the menu, upscaled bacon-and-eggs but there were so many options that our meals looked completely different on the plates and both meals were scrumptious! In lieu of hash browns, I chose a tomato salad and a toasted bagel and my husband opted for a fresh fruit salad. Our server was on the shy side, so we never caught her name, but she was attentive and efficient and smiled readily. Sunny side up! There was a celebratory vibe in the café that matched the fair weather--the first weekend in a long time that wasn't rainy, cold and windy! As the result, there was a lot of action in downtown Kenora and the restaurant was quite busy. New Summer Menu Options: -chicken on a waffle, served a variety of ways -every kind of omelette -two choices for 'avocado toast' -a dozen different versions of Eggs Benedict -smoothies and power bowls -breakfast wraps We fully intend to come back, no doubt more than once, to work our way through this new menu!

Great little breakfast spot! A little hard to find but worth the struggle! Service is good. It seems like there is a bakery component too if you just want to get a coffee and run!

We happened upon this great cafe/ bakery and so glad we did. Service was great, food amazing. They had gluten free desserts and vegan options too. Wish I would bought every cookie they had. Highly recommend!

Great meal! Highly recommend!! Hungry pug breakfast is fantastic and huge! Great flavours. You can tell the owners care about what they are doing and the staff like working here! Don’t miss. Our group also had “the plate” and eggs Benny. Everyone enjoyed!! Cinnamon buns are very good with lots of butter!

This was my first visit to this restaurant and certainly will not be our last. My wife and I arrived fairly close to their closing time for lunch. This is a small restaurant (seven tables perhaps less than normal due to Covid); it certainly is not a fancy place. However who cares about fancy when you are served a delicious meal. I had a Mexican Wrestler Benny while my wife had a Classic. It was extremely flavourful and the presentation was worthy of a 5 star establishment. It included a mound of savoury pan fries! The only reason that I did not rate the restaurant as excellent is that I thought our order took a little too long to get to our table. Part of the reason I think is that there were many takeout orders (an indication that their food is excellent) and as mentioned we arrived near closing time. The service was fine, we promptly got our beverages and the server was attentive. I look forward to our next visit and you will not be disappointed if you choose to dine here!

If you're looking for something outside of ordinary, give this place a try. Fresh, flavorful and filling. The desserts are amazing too!

We went for brunch this morning, and a small error was made with my wrap. Not only did they rectify it right away no questions asked, they discounted our bill. The food is always amazing and the staff, management and owner are wonderful. 10/10 recommend going there for breakfast/brunch. You will not be disappointed.

Wow..what an amazing menu and nice atmosphere. Hard to choose just one thing to eat. We ended up with a chicken shwarma and the grown up grilled cheese. Both were amazing! All the other food going by looked amazing too and comments from nearby tables were all glowing. Definitely recommend. Took home two cinnamon buns because they looked so yummy. Carl the owner super nice as well.

on a roadtrip from bc to ontario late-july, we happened upon hungry pug's; I was in need of a bkfst/lunch combination and my gourmand son was equally famished -- respectively opted for "the hungry pug" and "waffle bkfst sandwich" -- both were truly excellent in presentation and flavor, transcending ordinary bkfst fare by far -- we wrapped up with '10 lb' brownies (deep, dark and delicious) and west-coast cinnamon buns, which fueled us up magnificently, later beachside on lake superior

The Pug is always great! Had the Mushroom and Brie Benny, it was outstanding (and vegetarian as well, if that is your thing!). Wonderful blend of flavours that I know I would never have thought of putting together. If you have room, the baked good are second to none.

The Owner was very personable. The food was absolutely delicious, one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had. The menu is creative, healthy and Vegan friendly, but also had meat options as well! We ate as a family and everyone was raving. Great job we will be back again!

We happened upon this little gem! It was cosy, welcoming and the food and coffee were great! Great salad (I confess to falling for the hippy) and my husband had the soup with scones. Yum!!

A great breakfast and lunch place that combines food that will address your tummy grumbles with food that is just a little outside of "ordinary". Some thought went in to how far outside, as it inspires you to to put your toes outside your comfort zone, as opposed to leaving it completely. The Hungry Pug will elevate your palate, but it won't challenge you to do it.
