“KILLER breakfast.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

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!

“You've gotta eat here”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

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

“Great meal for under $20.00 with Tax and Tip”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

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!

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

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).

“West Side Cafe”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Great home made food, good value.
I enjoyed roast beef toasted on brown with mustard (sadly, no horse radish available) and pea soup. All prepared in the same fashion as my mother would have.
Awesome.
The poutine that is served around you is truly a marvel to watch, but I can't imagine to be eaten.
