Our handcrafted French country-style cuisine starts with the best ingredients sourced from regional farmers and fishers, wine makers and brewers, and artisanal producers who are dedicated to their craft. Everything we serve is made fresh, in-house: from stocks and sauces to ice cream and pastries and everything in between. It is the time-honoured, artisanal, slow food techniques of paysannes, country cooks and grand-meres that we embrace in our kitchen. Join us for a memorable culinary experience--all are welcome! Bring in the family for a family-style meal served in our bar room on our pine harvest tables, drop by for a 3 course $35 prix-fix Wed and Thursday, or enjoy a celebratory or romantic evening in our dining room. We look forward to seeing you!
