Chez DesLauriers restaurant opens its doors every summer to serve authentic Acadian lunches.

The charming tearoom, originally a heritage home built in the 1800s, is located near Pomquet beach at the top of a hill overlooking St. George’s Bay.

The establishment is run by the Pomquet development society volunteers who gather every Friday to prepare traditional Acadian meals.

However, I highly recommend sticking around and experiencing more than just the food, as there are other fun things to do:

♦ Discover the hiking trails

There are many beautiful coastal and inland hiking trails to enjoy – the views are breathtaking!

♦ Visit the Interpretive Centre

The local Interpretive Center offers captivating cultural and historical pieces.

♦ Check out le petit marché

The petit marché, small market, has merchandise and souvenirs for purchase.

♦ Home-made treats

Before heading out, buy a few home-made baked goods from Mrs. Patsy Doiron of Nanny’s Country Cooking

So be sure to drop in Chez DesLauriers this summer!

This is the perfect place to be on a hot sunny day. Delectable food, relaxing atmosphere and wonderful hosts.
