Description: In a beautfull building recently built(2005)in Magog on the main street. 5 min. walking distance from Memphremagog Lake. We are a restaurant serving french bistro style cuisine (''one of the best bistro lunch this side of the Atlantic''New York Times, Sept. 21, 2003) breakfast and lunch, dinner in summer only. We particularly recommand our homemade smoked salmon, potted rillette and duck liver mousse or terrine of foie gras. Bring your own wine starting in Aug.2013. Very nice terrace in the back on River Magog overlooking the marina.We are also making our own pastry, everything made from scracth, pure butter and cream and finally a real french bakery producing crusty baguette and sour dough breads with no fat or sugar, cooked right on the stone of the oven.We are now producing many items gluten free:cakes and pastries, restaurant dishes and even breads.

So we went to Magog on the way to the Bombardier cultural center in Valcourt to see the sculptures of Patricia Barrowman, a Canadian treasure. We stopped in this quiet bakery, open for lunch to have a salad. But the daily menu included Cassoulet (that in September with 80 degree temperature). What temerity. As a table - mate heard the...

Thank you for your thoughts and great review. The owner|chef Denis even makes the confit of duck himself, in fact he does everything on the menu from scratch. The different breads are made here to accompany every panini and sandwich. Owl's Bread More

I travelled a lot and I enjoy trying out new places. Therefore, I've had some very bad experiences in my time. This place however, surely takes the cake. Absolutely horrible service that prompted our group of 7 to leave. The owner was so rude that she was practically yelling. We asked for a table of 8 and got a table... More

I disagree. The best croissants I have ever had outside of France. A real treasure. We feel that we are are lucky to have such an extraordinary chef in the townships!

Long time to be served, no smile by employees, table not clean. Croissants not fresh. This was our last time there.

We stopped in Magog on our way to Montreal via the Eastern Township loop. Beautiful little town on the lake. We split a sandwich of grilled chicken breast with a salad and I also had the vegetable soup. The sandwich was very good, but the soup was outstanding. I had never had a pureed version of vegetable soup and it... More

Spent a long time waiting, when finally served, was given old, cold croissants. Really expensive. Not great experience, will never go back.

This boulangerie has become our regular place to have lunch whenever we stay in Magog. It reminds us of a typical boulangerie in Paris with excellent lunches, often followed by delectable pastries and coffee. We visited Magog this weekend and visited the cafe three times (twice for lunch and once for afternoon deserts), knowing that we could depend on good... More

Thius is a great place for a snack or lunch - also, visit their place in Mansonville (Owl's Head) which is quaint, has great baked good, frozen dinners, and a wonderful place for lunch (when they're open!).

Very nice place for lunch. Great service & tasty food. Ordered the 3 duck rillette with salad (really meaty & tasty duck), duck breast with Saint Benedict Abbey cheese panini with salad (with toasted walnuts - scrumptiously good!) blueberry tartlet & meringue with chocolate ganache filling (very yummy). Overall nice simple tasty lunch. Service was good & food came quickly.

We had lunch here on our way back to Manoir Hovey after visiting Abbaye Saint Benoit-du-lac. The notice on the door that it was recommended by TripAdvisor told us we would not be disappointed. We chose from the chalkboard specials and were richly rewarded with well-prepared and beautifully presented meals. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we returned the... More
