i was super pumped to come and sample a persian. But when we arrived we were greeted with an unenthusiastic staff person and an empty display. She did find us one in the back, which i really appreciated. But it was stale and not tasty at all. Overall a really bad experience, we felt very unwelcome.

The Persian Man sells persians which is a cinnamon bun with raspberry icing. You will enjoy this persian with your coffee. It is the best you have ever tasted, it is very YUMMY.

Service is just okay. It is a pretty busy place. But the donuts are fresh and delicious and even better when you take them back to your Lakehouse and sit by the fire with a nice bottle of wine! I have one every time I am in Thunderbay just because it is just the thing to do. If you order... More

Tried a persian based on the recommendation of a couple of locals. I wasn't highly impressed but I don't really eat a lot of donuts anyway.

I can't say anything about the food other then the delicious Persians. If you are buying a dozen, ask for the icing on the side. They are a bit messy faced in together iced, and much more presentable if you just iced them. If travelling on a plane or long ride you can get the frozen with icing on the... More

I heard good tings about the food here, so went for lunch during work one day. I asked for a six inch sub....and she pulls out a hot dog bun. I asked if that was really the "sub" bun, she said yes so I said I'd take a kaiser, which was a hamburger bun. The bread was a few days... More

Popped in to try a Persian - a cinnamon bun with flavoured pink icing. A local favourite and apparently famous enough you can order ones that travel on a plane home.

For a quick lunch with co-workers - its right down the street and has excellent soup, sandwiches and wraps. We go there often.
