Wait was half what we were told - 😃! Poutine and paninis and shakes and ciders were all fabulous. Server was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Truffle ketchup, buttermilk blueberry shake, those teeny little fries at the bottom of the fry cone - so good!

7-13-18 Wife and I ate their this week. We sent back the "pulled pork Cuban sandwich" which did not taste like any Cuban food we have had before. Their vanilla ice cream shake was fairly good.

We were just driving through and did not have time for a full meal, but we sure wish we did. We got the fries with curried mayonnaise and truffle ketchup. They were the best fries we have ever had.

Although my husband and I really enjoyed our shakes, we were not really that impressed with the fries. I honestly am perplexed by the love they get. Maybe we got a bad batch? The salad I had was delicious (asparagus, fennel and quinoa) and perfectly...More

So I had poutine at a nearby brewery, and can honestly say there was barely room for the Duckfat coffee shake. The shake was very good. The fries were unbelievable. I couldn't stop eating them. They were supposed to be split among 3, and no...More

I love Duck Fat! Great, creative sandwiches pressed to perfection. Tasty french fries cooked in duck fat. They always have local craft beer on draft. I go there fairly regularly for their poutine. I consider myself a poutine connoisseur. If a place has poutine I...More
