Start your day by stopping at the café de village Le Cafetier. Sit on their terrace, and enjoy a hearty breakfast with a cup of freshly ground coffee.
Then, head out for a morning activity in the great outdoors. Sutton is known for a ton of nature activities. Some examples? Mountain hiking on one of the region’s many trails, a couple of mountain bike descents at Mount Sutton, a kayak or canoe outing on the meandering Missisquoi River.

For a well-deserved pause, go to one or the other of the town’s two microbreweries where you’ll find amazing craft beers.
Make sure to fill up on provisions: teas from the Comptoir du Marchand du Thé, terroir products from the fine foods grocery store La Rumeur Affamée, a bottle (or two!) of wine from Domaine Bresee and the Vignoble du Ruisseau, a tarte Tatin at Matis traiteur’s catering service… In Sutton, the expansive list of gourmet delights will absolutely satiate you!
In the evening, we suggest you experience the ObservÉtoiles at Au Diable Vert. At this open-air planetarium, you’ll discover secrets and stories of the celestial sphere as you observe the sky with an augmented reality headset. What a brilliant concept!
