I was driving back to Nova Scotia and camping in the area and happened upon La Salicorne Cafe in time for a latish lunch. I'm so very glad that I stopped here. I dined on the spacious front porch on a very hot afternoon but there was a most pleasant breeze blowing off the river. The view was lovely. The huge old church across the highway and a lovely view of the St. Lawrence River.
Service was attentive and the lunch menu delightful. I chose the Soup du Jour, a very tasty creme of vegetable and then the home made Saucissons Salicorne - a pair of house made pork sausages flavoured with fennel and Aleppo Pepper. They were very tasty and not at all fatty, grilled to perfection. Accompanied by a tomato-based curried chutney - totally yummy. The roasted potato wedges with aioli flavoured with finely diced pickle added a wonderfully earth contrast. And the mesclun salad was the perfect finish.
I tried a glass of the local cranberry flavoured apple cider. Tart and dry. Perfect for such a warm mid day meal.
Dessert was Creme Brule, as rich and creamy as it out to be. My cafe allongee cut the sweetness perfectly.
I would say that La Salicorne Cafe is worthy of a short ramble off the main highway as you make your way either east or west. Prices are very reasonable. My lunch cost me a mere $30, including tax. Quality is superbe. Ambiance is relaxing and service excellent. I can't wait for a return visit.
