Best pizza I've had in a long time. Lovely to sit outside, listen to soft music with a great pizza and a local beer.

They stayed open later for us when they heard us pull! The atmosphere is charming, the food is delicious, and the staff - especially the owner - were amazing, friendly, hosts. They made it a very enjoyable experience. Don't leave Manitoulin without visiting this restaurant
