Stopped in here while heading to Sudbury. It's a cool little shop with Native and Canadian themed items for sale as well as some fantastic fudge and some awesome berry flavoured sauces. If you're passing by I definitely recommend stopping here.

We had our food in less than 15 minutes - lots of variety - clean washrooms. Large ice-cream selection. We've stopped here previously with a bus and still was fed quickly. Did not visit the trading post this time but it's a separate building.
