Our friends recommended this place because it was voted 3rd best Poutine in Canada. It was fantastic! I tried the québécois, Poutine with Montreal smoked meat. It was awesome!

If you haven't tried it yet, their soft serve ice cream is the best around. I find its the thickest and most creamy. I recommend getting it in a waffle cone.

We stopped in with Friends for a quick & late afternoon Lunch. It's a cute soda shop themed restaurant that just does the basics. Fries, Poutine, Burgers, Dogs, Pop, Ice Cream etc... We had a Family Size poutine & shared it between 4 adults & we had trouble finishing it. And we LOVE Fries!!! Would definitely go back.

Was back in North Bay for the first time in 11 years. Ivan's still makes one of the tastiest burgers around. Will be sure to eat there again.
