Style at Home - - Dessert Of The Month -

Linger in your woodsy sur­rounds (maybe even make a rus­tic cup of cof­fee over the fire) be­fore driv­ing to St. Lawrence River-fac­ing Pains d’Ex­cla­ma­tion! for your pick of pas­tries, sand­wiches and a hot bevvie. Af­ter break­fast, make your way to Po­terie de Port-au

Per­sil (2), based in Sain­tSiméon, where you can pur­chase pieces made by lo­cal pot­ters and, if you re­serve a work­shop spot, even create some of your own. Rel­ish the scenic drive back to Les Éboule­ments, stop­ping in La Mal­baie to sip a glass of French Bordeaux and try some lo­cal cheese at Bar La Brise in the Fair­mont Le Manoir Riche­lieu ho­tel’s lobby.

Back at Repère Boréal, rest and re­set be­fore head­ing to din­ner at Faux Berg

ers (5) (book a ta­ble in ad­vance). Ev­ery day, the chefs here pre­pare a new six-course tast­ing menu, which typ­i­cally fea­tures veg­eta­bles, fish and meat cooked over a wood fire. It’s one of the most cre­ative – and de­li­cious – meals you’ll have all year, and it’s a steal at only $55 per per­son.

Set in a for­mer con­vent, the co­op­er­a­tive-run Le Mousse Cafe is a quirky spot for a quick bite.
