On the Road to Discovery: Local Canteens…

When a Quebecer travels, what dish do they miss the most? The poutine of course! There is nothing more comforting than a good portion of fries, gravy and cheese curds to make you appreciate our beautiful Quebec. Did you know that poutine’s place of origin is a hotly debated topic in Quebec? Indeed, half of us are convinced that the dish is from Drummondville, while the other half say it’s from Warwick. No matter where poutine was first ordered, we can agree that it is the pride of the whole province.

Here is a list of canteens in the Saint-Hyacinthe region so that you can satisfy your most intense cravings for poutine!

Cantine Bernard

Present for nearly 60 years on Maskoutain soil, Cantine Bernard is still very popular with its customers. Their poutine is a delight for young and old. The secret to their famous poutine? The sauce! Yes, it’s often the sauce that makes all the difference in a poutine, and the one from Bernard is simply delicious! Their menu is varied, everyone will find something to their liking guaranteed! During the beautiful days of summer, the orders just follow one after another to allow customers to enjoy the place.

Le Laurier

Formerly under two different roofs, Friterie Laurier and Crèmerie Laurier are now grouped under the same roof. Their new facilities allow you to enjoy a complete meal from main course to dessert. Le Laurier is known for its spaghetti sauce, so we recommend the Italian poutine, which combines the typical Quebec dish and spaghetti sauce that tastes like mamma’s recipe. A guaranteed treat! You can finish your family meal with a good soft serve before heading back on the road.
