The eastend pizzeria that also features a wide range of Italian dishes shares the title of Best Pizza with  Both Hands Pizzeria&Bakery in Thunder Bay.

Other Sault establishments were also recognized in their own categories, such as the Mill Market that placed second for Best Farmer’s Market and Algoma’s Water Tower Inn and Suites for Best Place for Live Local Music.
