Cafés de Villages

Do you wish to truly immerse yourself in the essence of a region? Then you must visit a Café de Village! These establishments are renowned for the warm welcome of their owners and their friendly ambiance. They’re also often a popular meeting place for the locals, making them excellent venues for finding more information about a town and the not-to-be-missed attractions in the area. Take a little time to sit down, enjoy a cup of coffee, eat a home-cooked meal and relax as you plan your next stop.


This Café de Village is the ideal place where you can pamper both small and tall alike. You’ll find an artisans’ boutique with a vast selection of local and European sweets, a restaurant, a country terrace with a view of the mountains and, for everyone’s enjoyment, a chocolate museum!


With a selection of more than 30 products all made with Québec flours, bread lovers will be delighted as they browse through this Cowansville institution! You’ll also find pure butter Viennese and other pastries, as well as a friendly café space where you can relax for a while, savour a cup of coffee and enjoy a homemade sandwich or pizza.


Located in the lovely town where Québec’s first vineyards emerged, Épicerie-Café Dunham offers a café bistro, a catering service and a marinated meat counter. The Café’s varied menu, including vegetarian and gluten-free options, is sure to please everyone. Just stopping by for an afternoon aperitif? You’ll find a selection of wines and spirits all produced in the Brome-Missisquoi region, as well as beers from the neighbouring Brasserie Dunham. During the summer months, relax on the terrace as you feel the village vibe, and fill up on local products before you leave!


The owners of this Bedford establishment, part coffee roaster, part bakery and part pastry shop, regularly update their menu according to their customers’ requests.   You’ll find a full breakfast menu available until 2:00 p.m., as well as paninis and salads for lunch – all homemade! The owners roast their own fair-trade coffees from 20 different countries and make them available to customers and grocery retailers in 15 unique house blends. They also offer 40 different regular and herbal teas, all sold in bulk.
