Expose your taste buds to new flavours in a region whose reputation as a foodie destination is well established. Whether you’re looking for a place to break bread after visiting a tourist attraction or fill up after a day spent outdoors or you’ve come precisely to discover the local eats, a delicious adventure is around the corner! Take a seat at a restaurant headed by a Creative Chef, grab a bite at a Village Café or explore the microbreweries, chocolate shops, cheese shops, specialty stores and even the vineyards of the Eastern Townships to find products that are both unique and scrumptious!

Trust your palate to the experts

True ambassadors of regional products, the Creative Chefs contribute to putting the Townships’ delicacies on must-taste lists everywhere. These twenty-or-so chefs are committed to highlighting Créateurs de saveurs products, which are certified to have been grown, farmed or prepared in the Eastern Townships. If you’re on a quest for creative menus focused on authenticity, try out one of their restaurants. You’ll find them in many of the region’s cities, including Sherbrooke, North Hatley, Bromont and Lac-Brome.

For a friendly country ambience, the Village Cafés, identified from the outside with a special badge, are impossible to beat. You’ll find comforting meals, delicious hot coffee, tasty sandwiches and bistro dishes just waiting to be devoured! There are more than 15 Village Cafés spread out through the region that are sure to impress diners with their warm welcome, convivial setting and simple charm.

You can take a foodie road trip in winter, too

Some producers close up shop during the cold season, but foodies will be delighted to know that many do remain open. Visit the vineyards in the picturesque countryside, treat yourself to delectable confections at a chocolate shop or savour a locally made cheese. Finish your day at one of the microbreweries for a satisfying meal and craft beer.
