long-time prime location in St. Sauveur has been renovated and transformed
into a Pub-Gourmand serving sumptuous meals throughout the day. The new
owners, Hugues Néron, and Hugo Laliberté have turned it into a very
popular spot. The décor is pleasant and comfortable with upholstered tall
bar stools, benches and tables, as well as regular tables with comfortable
chairs. And in the summer you can watch the world go by from the terrace.
In the winter, those who need to take a puff have an outside comfortable,
sheltered small room (without a door).
arrival in the morning, coffee is promptly served with a smile. The
breakfast menu is interesting. My plate came with toasted crusty bread, a
fried egg, crunchy bacon strips, scalloped potatoes in a ceramic pot, a
pot of their own raspberry jam, a glass of "smoothie", a piece of brownie
baked in their own kitchen, and fruit beautifully cut including fan-shaped
pear, orange, melon, watermelon, and strawberries. The waitress took the
time to explain every item on the plate, and then passed by to top the
coffee and offered more toasted baguette.
my second visit, I brought a friend along for lunch. And what a treat we
had! We chose the lunch special of soup followed by fish & chips, or a
small sizzling steak with chips ($15-$16.50). The soup was creamy and
delicious. The crisp fish came with
potatoes done just right, and a pot of mayonnaise done in their own
kitchen. Not one morsel was left on the plates.
To complete the meal we had a desert of cooked
apples, topped with a delicate mousse and whipped cream, served with two
very crispy, crackling, thin cookies ($8.50). We cleaned these up too!
restaurant has a team of chefs that put out imaginative dishes, and there
is a choice of wine from different countries and varied prices, as well as
various beers, and cocktails. On Fridays and Saturdays, they feature live
music, and on holidays there are special menus, live music, and family
rates. This is a good place to meet with friends, family or a romantic
dinner. Le Saint-SAU Pub Gourmand, 236 Rue Principale, St. Sauveur.
