Culinary Ode To The Seasons

Le Tap Room welcomes you to a relaxed atmosphere, where seasonal menus and local flavours await. Our culinary team pays tribute to the terroir with ingredients sourced from the farms, fields, forests and waters nearby. Savour freshly-caught fish, hand-picked aromatic herbs, birch syrup harvested from our property, and honey made in-house by our buzzing bees. Try our renowned Abenaki poutine for a taste of Quebec.

“Our team creates a sensorial experience for our guests, introducing them to local terroir and celebrating fresh, local ingredients. We take them on a journey of Quebec with every bite, which we hope brings a new appreciation for simple elegance and balanced living.”
