It is worth de detour. The site is magnificent, with lots of chairs to sit, looking a the beautiful garden, while eating great home made ice cream, or sorbet.

Mmm!!

This is the place to stop for an ice cream after a day in Gatineau Park. It is clearly popular. The was a long line out the door when we were there, many who were clearly regular or return visitors. Many flavours to pick from, from old classics to unique combinations. In addition to cones and coffee, you can also buy tubs of ice cream if you want to take some home with youl Staff there speak both English and French. There is plenty of seating in the back garden and on the patio to enjoy eating your ice cream if the weather is good. They are open late (10 pm) most nights with their posted summer hours.
