Food connoisseurs, treat yourselves! The Eastern Townships invite you for incomparable gastronomy and must-eats. Discover local products you’ll only find in this region and delight in the friendly ambience. Sit down to a meal prepared by a Creative Chef, drop in at a Village Café or start thinking maple syrup and trips to the sugar shack.

Spotlight on terroir cuisine and Creative Chefs

What does it take to be a Creative Chef? The Creative Chefs are at the head of restaurants that use the Créateurs de saveurs products in their cuisine as much as they can. Those products in turn are ones that are certified to have been grown, farmed or prepared in the region. The 20 Creative Chefs in the Eastern Townships are committed to offering quality to foodies who are looking for authentic terroir products. At their prestigious, trendy restaurants found in North Hatley, Bromont, Eastman, Sherbrooke, Lac-Brome and other locations, the Creative Chefs present you with plates that feature the best in regional fine dining.

Stop by the Village Cafés

Throughout the region, you are sure to come upon the Village Cafés: picturesque eating establishments serving delicious, comforting food. There are a total of 15 such cafés ready to welcome you with hot coffee, tasty sandwiches and bistro-style meals. These cafés are great places to head to after a day at a provincial park, on the slopes or in a museum; you’ll be more than happy you did!

Don’t forget about sugar-shaking!

Is winter already over? Not yet, but the time for sugar-shaking is just around the corner. Home to several sugar bushes, the Townships invite you to celebrate the seasonal flavour in one of its eight sugar shacks. You can of course expect a traditional meal and maple taffy, as well as the chance to enjoy nature as you savour Quebec maple syrup. Start planning for it now; the season lasts until mid-April.
