Sault Ste. Marie Culinary Adventures

Experience food and drink inspired by the Algoma landscape

Updated: By Heather Bot

Every destination has a distinct taste of place and history. Guided tours are a great way to learn about history, architecture and hidden gems in a short amount of time. You’ll meet new people and immerse yourself in local culture.

Sault Ste. Marie’s food scene is one of those little secrets that only the locals know. The city has always been renowned for its Italian food and pizza, but it is growing in unique and international flavours inspired by countries and cultures from around the world. Many of the eateries are family-owned and operated, some generational serving delicious food for decades.

The dining experiences in the city are pretty wide too. You’ll find fine dining establishments, family-oriented restaurants, cafés and cozy diners, and in the summer months, outdoor patios multiply. You can even enjoy a drink in a globe in winter. No matter what you choose, you’re in for tasty food created by people who are passionate about the food they make and the customers they serve.

A Taste of Sault Ste. Marie

Sault Ste. Marie Culinary Adventures are available with Blaq Bear Tours to explore the historic downtown and waterfront. You’ll sample tasty bits and bites, paired with a local craft beer, or wine.

Listen to interesting facts about the local heritage and culture of the area, and what kinds of foods and flavours are distinct to Algoma. Experience first-hand to savour the tastes at one-of-a-kind restaurants and eateries, or what locally grown products make up the meal. You might even learn a secret family recipe, or two.
