    La Boulangerie Bouchard, on l'Ile-aux-Coudres
    1 more image

    On any given day, you'll find people lining up by the cash register of La Boulangerie Bouchard and after you've had a taste their homemade bread, you'll understand why - who would eat any other sort of bread if they had the chance to eat this bread instead?! The bakery, which was founded in 1945 by the father of the current owner, also offers different sorts of homemade desserts and pastries, and the island's best "pate croche", which is sort of like a meat pie baked in a turnover crust. Make sure to bring some back home!

    What to buy: I'd never heard of a pate croche before going to l'Ile-aux-Coudres and as I love to discover new local dishes, I bought some along with a loaf of bread.

    What to pay: About $3 per item

    Cidrerie Vergers Pedneault: Bring home a little taste of the island

    Tasting room at the Cidrerie Vergers Pedneault

    Back in 1918, the Pedneault family planted their first 300 fruit trees on l'Ile-aux-Coudres. Since then, the family business has expanded, and the Cidrerie Vergers Pedneault now offers a wide selection of products, including vinegars, ciders, liquors (mistelles), honey, jelly, and much, much more! From mid-September to mid-October, visitors can go apple-picking in the Pedneault orchards, where you can ask the staff which type of apple is best for baking pies, making jelly, and so on. Also, you can taste all the different fruit ciders and liquors produced on site. My favorite one is called "Le Glacier", a sweet and tasty ice cider that can be served as an aperitive or a dessert wine.

    What to buy: The small-size bottles of vinegar, cider and liquor make for great gifts and souvenirs!

    What to pay: I paid $20 for a 375 ml bottle of ice cider
