Updated on May 27, 2024

From the farm to the plate, the Townships’ gourmet artisans are constantly innovating. Here are five examples that will have you want to discover for yourself what they’re up to!

Three Chefs Who Have Set Up Residence in Our Kitchens

You discovered him on the 2014 show "Les Chefs!" The grand winner, Chef Hakim Chajar, has settled into the new Restaurant Ôma at Vignoble du Ruisseau! It's a perfect opportunity to taste his fresh and surprising cuisine in a rustic setting.

For an intimate gastronomic experience, visit François Lessard's table d'hôte at Huit5quatre. This well-traveled chef has returned to the Eastern Townships, much to our delight and that of your taste buds. A memorable evening guaranteed!

Combine sports and gourmet dining by discovering the Road Trip Gourmand Signé Chef Oli in Haute-Yamaska! Follow the La Campagnarde bike path, with stops at La Ferme Brewery and Gâteaux Duvoquic Pastry Shop, then finish with a tasting of a gourmet box at Terre Bowker. The domain of Chef Olivier Loussaint (Chef Oli) in the Townships!

Four New Addresses for a Drink

End your day in the relaxed atmosphere of the new bistro-bar Le Beagle Club at Hôtel Château-Bromont. Whether you come to taste its simple and refined dishes or to refresh yourself with its diverse drinks menu, you'll always have a good time here.

Founded in Montreal in 2017, Matera Brasseurs has just opened in Duham. With its refreshing beers and breathtaking views, it has become a new must-stop brewery on the Eastern Townships Wine Route!

In Sherbrooke, Halte des Crinqués is certainly the new urban rendezvous to discover! A Viking decor, good beer (brewed on-site), and a passion for sports are all you'll find in this microbrewery founded by two friends.

A well-known address in Sutton, the microbrewery À l’Abordage is opening a second location in Bromont. Families and outdoor lovers gather here to enjoy a well-deserved break after exploring the many local hiking and biking trails.

Three Addresses to Experience Rustic Gastronomy

On June 15th, don’t miss the inauguration of the Pub Champêtre at Équinoxe Cider Farm in Farnham. From its beautiful terrace in nature, enjoy a convivial meal made from products from the estate. A great promise for your summer evenings!

You discovered it last year, the restaurant Les Mal-Aimés at Cœur Villageois in Cookshire-Eaton now invites you to enjoy one of its delicious picnic baskets on-site or elsewhere. Fresh, local, and gourmet, what more could you ask for?

A new Sunday morning event from July 7 to October 6, fill up on flavors at the Bromont Public Market at the farm. Celebrate the many local producers who are there to present the fruits of their harvests and enjoy its lively atmosphere!

Three Talented Regional Producers

Newly settled in the region, La Vallée du Moulin in Melbourne lovingly cultivates fresh and organic figs. Whether for its enchanting setting or its gourmet shop, a visit to the site and its facilities is worth the trip! This year, new interpretation panels will tell you the history of the place.

If you already found it hard to pass through Compton without stopping at La Station cheese factory, it will become downright impossible now that you know a new cheese, Le Chemin du Brûlé, has arrived in the shop!

In addition to being talented winemakers, the vintners at Val Caudalies are definitely not lacking in creativity. A brand new melon-flavored white wine has just been added to the list of unique nectars produced in the Townships. Cheers to this story of friendship between two regional producers!

Two New Village Cafés to Meet Up

On Shefford Street, in the heart of Old Bromont, N Latte stands in the place of the former Gaïa restaurant. Comfortably settled on one of its two floors, sip one of its specialty coffees, accompanied by a snack (sweet or savory) with vegan and gluten-free options.

A breath of fresh air also for the second location of the artisanal bakery Dora in Orford, which transforms into Café des Cantons. Come and enjoy a good three-cheese and bacon grilled cheese or take one of its sugar shack dishes to go!
