Quality Finnish Food

The Hoito restaurant has been filling bellies with hearty Finnish home cooking and Canadian classics for 99 years.  It was established in 1918 and is housed in the bottom floor of the historic Finnish Labour Temple, also affectionately known as the Finlandia. The Hoito has operated continuously at its current location, 314 Bay Street, in the Finnish quarter in Thunder Bay, ON, and is perhaps the oldest co-operatively owned and operated restaurant in Canada. The restaurant currently employs approximately 60 full and part-time workers.

"Hoito" is Finnish for the word "care", and we look forward to taking care of you for many years to come.  Tervetuloa!
