Lovely casual eatery with something on the menu for everyone...including duck poutine. The duck burger was so good...I had to go back again. We sampled the local Belle Gueule beer... try the dark...it's awesome! Good place for families...or not. Lovely servers and great food. Reasonable prices too.

Not much to look at, but the service and food was wonderful. The family convinced me to go after several walks around. I highly suggest the duck burger with salad, Hubs loved the bolognese and the onion soup was a big hit with my 18 y/o daughter. We would return!!!

Tried poutine special on Friday - pea soup, bacon poutine, dessert and local blond beer. Very good. Returned on Sunday - no special ☹️. Had burgers and poutine. Burger was OK but a bit charred and somewhat dry. I suppose in interest of food safety. A bit less time on the grill would have been perfect. Anyway figure it about... More

Tips are a nuisance and the sooner wages are improved and tips can be given as a reward for service the better. I shouldn't be expected to pay 15 percent as a matter of course. Anyway the food and service is aimed at a tourist market, could be a lot better.

went to this restaurant for the breakfast and we were truly disappointed. The food was horrible. My scrambled eggs were barely scrambled, the bacon I asked for crisp, came back overcooked, the potatoes were perhaps cooked over three or four times and it all came to the table with half the food barely warm. The toast had obviously been buttered... More

I ate brunch here today and was impressed by the warm greeting and the quality of the food. Given the prime location of the restaurant, the prices were very reasonable. I ate the poutine special and the portion was huge. The staff were friendly and I really enjoyed my visit

It was a bleak day with a bitter cold wind. After a few hours walking around it was great to enter the warmth of Cafe Baude and enjoy a hot onion soup, poutine and a couple of well earned beers. The food was good, the beers were great and the service was excellent!

There is a wide selection of food options; however the traditional poutine (chips, gravy and cheese curd) is a must. My husband and I shared this with a bowl of traditional French Onion soup one lunchtime. Went down extremely well with a pint of blonde and red ale. Great customer service! Very friendly and welcoming. Food is served reasonably quick... More
