    If you're not staying at a B&B and are looking for a place to go for breakfast, the restaurant at Hotel Cap-aux-Pierres has a really good brunch. With a nice selection of fresh fruits, eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, hashbrowns, pancakes, French toasts, pastries and more, everyone will find something they like to start off the day on the right foot before hoping on their bike! Breakfast is served from 7:00 to 10:00 am (11:00 am on Sundays) and although the dining room is really big, it might be a good idea to make reservations.

    While you're there, you can also check out the evening table d'hote which typically features local fish and game dishes. The hotel's bar, with its nice selection of light fares and meals offered during the day, is a good option for lunch for the entire family.

    La Roche Pleureuse: Gotta love the atmosphere!

    La tourtiere

    One thing you should know when travelling to l'Ile-aux-Coudres is that there are not that many restaurants and considering the island's popularity, reservations are strongly recommended. Thanks to VTer Simonneeddy's tip, we had made a reservation at La Roche Pleureuse for dinner. This small hotel complex was built in 1930 and was named after one of the island's legends: a young woman lost her fiance at sea and her grieve was so relentless that she was transformed into a crying rock (la roche pleureuse). The rock can still be seen at the bottom of the hill leading to the hotel and restaurant.

    La Roche Pleureuse was getting ready to celebrate Christmas in the fall when we were there, so there was a jolly atmosphere all around. The huge dining room was full and the menu offered many local delicacies. Sylvain and I both went for the "tourtiere", a meat and potato pie that is typical of the Saguenay and Charlevoix regions. It was delicious and quite filling! But no matter how full we were, we couldn't skip on the home-made sugar pie, which came with some "sucre a la creme". The restaurant's staff, dressed in period costumes, and the nice turn-of-the-century decoration made our meal even more delightful!

    You don't have to be staying at the hotel to go to the restaurant. If you're only spending one evening on the island, I'd strongly recommend having dinner there!

    Favorite Dish: Everything was delicious but if you've never had tourtiere before, now's your chance to taste this local recipe!
