We saw this place listed as the premier breakfast spot in Sault Ste. Marie, so we headed directly over there once we cleared customs at the bridge. (One agent on duty? No wonder we waited a half hour.) Thankfully, we had Google maps on our iPhones and were guided clear across the city up a service road and onto the Anishnabe Indian reserve. I was ready to turn back several times, but I'm glad we didn't. From the outside, Noel's Place/Chummy's Grill (not sure where one ends and the other begins) is about as unpretentious as you can get,but inside you are greeted by pine paneling, the smell of bacon and baking bread, and warm people. (When we asked how the heck we got back downtown, our waitress gave us an explanation, and then the hostess came over with a map of the city she had run off for us with our destination starred.) Our breakfasts were filling and tasty -- the slabs of pea bacon (aka Canadian bacon) were thick and delicious, the coffee actually had some body and flavor, and the eggs cooked perfectly. The restaurant itself was filled with customers, both Native and non-Native, including a First Nations family with at least four generations represented. No wonder people go out of their way to find this place -- it's great.
