Very fast, friendly service, very good food (especially the poutine), and excellent prices. What more could you ask of a diner?

The setting is non pretentious and is the likes of a tired Corvette Diner. However, the food is very good, the place is clean, and the service is friendly and fast. Their menu is varied and it covers all three daily meals. We had lunch at this diner and it was surprisingly good. We ordered a cheeseburger, fries, and a... More

I stop here at least once a year for poutines and other traditional Quebecois dishes. It is a small diner that has had very few changes over the years. The staff are friendly and helpful; year after year, they recognize me when I return. The staff speaks very little English. I always speak as much French as possible, and, together... More

Pros : - Good food and average service. - Good prices. - Quaint little diner. The kind of place that knows your name when your a local and treats you like family. Cons : - The staff really looks at you funny when your an "outsider". - A bit of a fly problem. (Full disclosure every restaurant we ate at... More

This place use to have the best poutine in town. It's been sold and the poutine sauce hasn't been the same since. The food is good, is definitely budget friendly and the staff is great.

It's a Sunday morning in Coaticook, Quebec and my son and I head downtown looking for a place for breakfast, expecting probably to have to settle for Tim Horton's or MacD's. Instead there are a number of local establishments that appear to be well patronized. We choose the Cafe Central for no particular reason, but on arriving find there’s only... More

We chose this restaurant for a late dinner. I cannot say that we exhaustively explored the depths of their very long menu (they must have had at least 10 varieties of poutine alone), but the food that we did have were very good. Now that I think about it, I had exactly what's on the picture and everything was delicious.... More
