Tasting breakfast included
At the Maison de l'île d'Orléans, the breakfast service is a highlight of your stay. He is neither vegetarian, nor vegan. It is simply greedy, without being heavy. The hearty four-course meal will keep you going until dinner. You are invited to the table at 9 a.m. for a tasting of the chef's choices. The culinary discovery lasts approximately two hours. Thus, by the duration and the choice of the menu, this lunch is similar to brunch.
It is aimed at lovers of local gastronomy, because everything is prepared on site using ingredients from the island. The menu adapts to one thing only: the rhythm of the seasons. To create it, Yves, the resident chef, was inspired by the recipes of great starred chefs from France and elsewhere.
NEW FOR 2023
With the experience of our first season, Yves invites you to a great discovery. He spent the winter creating his own "playground". Indeed, it is Yves who, depending on the harvest and the length of the visitors' stay, determines the menu for your gourmet lunch every morning.
SLOW FOOD MOVEMENT
The "Slow Food" movement -- practiced here -- has its roots in 1986. A group of friends -- with a common passion for establishing a clear connection between pleasure, the origin of food and rural life -- meet around the values of bonhomie and good simple food. This is what we offer you.
Among the objectives are the following:
Oppose the degrading effects of the food industry and fast food culture that standardize tastes.
Promote the beneficial effects of deliberate consumption of local food and indigenous food.
Promote a philosophy of pleasure.
Encourage attentive and environmentally friendly tourism and solidarity initiatives in the food sector.
Work to safeguard and promote public awareness of culinary traditions and mores.
Helping artisan food producers who make quality products.
But if you are in a hurry and have to leave your room early, Yves has also thought of you. Served at 7:30 in the morning, before the gourmet lunch, the Express will be able to sustain you before departure.
