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.
