We had breakfast at the Hoito Restaurant this morning with the whole clan. The Hoito is a Finnish cafeteria atmosphere where Thunder Bay'ers will willingly stand at the entrance for twenty minutes or longer waiting for a table to be cleaned for them, just to savor the offerings of the Hoito's breakfast. They have lots of regular stuff like bacon, eggs etc. but the majority of people come specifically their Finnish Pancakes.

The Hoito is located in the basement of what was the Finnish Labor Temple and was started by a group of Finnish bush workers looking for a descent meal in 1918. The "tradition of hearty food, large portions, low prices" continues.

It is always a must stop for us when we go home. As per always, it was fab. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of my pancakes, bacon and homefries but I did take a picture of the outside of the building.
