This little diner is on the edge of nowhere, serving the locals of St-Sebastien (Henryville). Since it sits on the road between Montreal and Vermont, it’s a convenient stop for lunch or supper. The quintessential greasy spoon diner, it has a counter that serves about half a dozen people and five or six small tables. The menu consists of country breakfast options, sandwiches, fries and pies. All the food is prepared in full view of the patrons. Their specialty is French fries (frites); a heaping plate of fresh fries costs only $3.00 and is accompanied by vinegar or ketchup.

If you’ve never tried one of Quebec’s most famous specialties, this is as good a place as any to try poutine. Imagine a handful of cheese curds nested in a plate of hot french-fries. Now drown the whole works in gravy. The result is a deliciously sticky mass of potato and cheese, dripping in gravy. A large plate costs six or seven dollars.

The staff, and nearly all the customers, are Quebecois, so you’ll hear nothing but French. The staff speak enough English to take care of your order and make small talk.
