Establishments to discover!

Cheffanie, backyard table

 1420 Fitzgerald Ave, Courtenay, V9N 2S2

It started with a food truck and it evolved to a line of take-out, ready-to-serve meals. After being in British Columbia for more than 20 years, I got the desire to settle in the Comox Valley to be part of a small welcoming community that brings me values of sharing and mutual aid.

Featured item in March

CRETONS, a typical Quebecois spread, between a rillette and a pâté, delectable at any time of the day, on crackers or toasted baguette.

salade de fruits cafe inc


 1545 W. 7th avenue, Vancouver, v6g 1s1

Salade de Fruits was the first restaurant to do mussels and fries in Vancouver. No one believed in it! It started in 1995 with À table and then with Salade de fruits in 1999, in Centre culturel francophone and... we are still here 24 years later! Our product is local, and wasn't too popular at the time. But now, other establishments suggests a similar offering… But we have a saying in French: toujours copié, mais jamais égalé (always copied, but never equaled). Our fries and our mayonnaise are homemade & all the products at Salade the fruits are, fresh, homemade and of premium quality!

Featured item in March

Mussels and regular fries
